Andrus Peat, OT
College Team: Stanford

Andrus Peat is a huge offensive tackle prospect. He started at left tackle at Stanford for the past two seasons. Peat has the ability to be a top left tackle in the NFL.
Peat won the Morris Trophy as the top offensive lineman in the Pac-12. His father, Todd, played 6 seasons in the NFL with the Cardinals and Raiders.
Peat has good technique and sets up quickly with proper knee bend. He has a good kick-slide and looks the part as a pass protector. Peat is agile on his feet for such a large man.
Peat is quick off the snap of the ball. He can be a devastating run blocker, moving defenders with his powerful legs. Peat is very smart and can pick up complex protection schemes he will see in the NFL.
Peat doesn’t always play with consistency. He will struggle with speed rushers which he will see a lot of in the NFL. Peat can lose concentration and lunge at defenders when beaten.
Peat would probably win the competition at right tackle for the Redskins
Peat looks out of place when he loses his technique. He becomes a waist-bender instead of a knee-bender. The game may come too easy for Peat in college and he needs to focus if he is to succeed at the next level.
Peat would probably win the competition at right tackle for the Redskins. He would also be the player most likely to replace Trent Williams at left tackle if he were to be injured. If he can keep up with top-level rushers, he will be a good pro.
Peat could very well be a player that McCloughan will target in a trade down. He could be taken anywhere from 10-20. If an evaluator just watched his best games, Peat would be a top ten pick in this draft.
