Strengths Weaknesses

Peat is impressive on the hoof. He has long arms, broad shoulders and good weight distribution with tree trunks for thighs. Given Peat's monstrous frame, it is almost unfair that he gains an immediate advantage on his opponent with surprising quickness off the snap. He is balanced and light on his feet to slip out to the second level and can adjust to moving targets.

In pass protection, Peat has the agility to slip wide to his left, sealing off speed rushers trying to turn the corner, as well the strength to latch and control defenders. Peat is patient, allowing the defender to come to him, showing good lateral agility and balance to mirror.

WEAKNESSES: Comes off the ball too high and doesn't explode through his hips to drive opponents backward, settling to turn and seal. In pass pro, he will occasionally get lazy and bend at the waist, leaning into pass rushers and inviting counter-moves back to the inside. This flaw could be exposed more in 2014 now that former Morris Trophy Award winner David Yankey is playing for the Minnesota Vikings rather than starring at left guard.

Occasional lapses in technique is the kind of nit-picking that could happen with Peat, who, otherwise looks the part of a future high first round pick.

Player Overview

During the Jim Harbaugh-David Shaw era, size and strength have been prioritized over athleticism at virtually every position. In Peat, however, the Cardinal boast a massive blocker with rare athleticism.

Peat signed with Stanford as a highly regarded prep and he's proven worthy of his praise, earning playing time as a true freshman on an offensive line filled with NFL talent. He has started the past two seasons at left tackle and has the rare traits to handle remaining here in the NFL.

07/31/2014 - 2014 PRESEASON OUTLAND TROPHY AWARD WATCH LIST: OT Andrus Peat, Stanford...Peat makes his first career Watch List but quickly became a known commodity last year in his first season as a starter. In fact, head coach David Shaw moved two-time All-American David Yankey (drafted by Minnesota this spring) last season from left tackle to left guard to make room for Peat's 6 foot 7, 312 pound frame guarding quarterback Kevin Hogan's back. The nation's top-rated recruit by Sporting News out of Chandler, Ariz. in 2011, Peat already has one career All-America honor under his belt (Sports Illustrated) and is a preseason first team selection by Athlon. - Stanford football
