Stanford junior T Andrus Peat is "remarkably light on his feet for a man of his size, demonstrating not only agility but balance and great length to keep pass rushers at bay," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
Peat recently won the Morris Trophy, given annually to the most outstanding offensive and defensive linemen in the Pac-12 Conference. It's one of Rang's favorite awards, as it is voted on by players, not coaches or media. The analyst notes that Peat is currently projected as a first-rounder. We're still awaiting word on whether the 6-foot-6, 315-pounder will enter the draft early. Dec 17 - 9:22 PM

Stanford junior T Andrus Peat wins Morris Trophy, given annually to the most outstanding offensive and defensive linemen in the Pac-12 Conference.

The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder has started 26 consecutive games since taking over the starting left tackle job for the 2013 season opener. The Stanford prospect has generated a lot of buzz, but he's much more assertive and powerful run blocking than he is in pass protection. Peat has been talked about as a consensus top 10 prospect, but most rank Cedric Ogbuehi and Brandon Scherff above him.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Stanford junior T Andrus Peat "was given, or will soon be handed, a first round grade from scouts."

Earlier this week, Peat submitted paperwork to the NFL's draft advisory board. Pauline reported recently that Peat was leaning towards returning to school, though the analyst now notes that "it will be interesting to see if this confirmation impacts his final decision." The San Jose Mercury News reported that Peat is indeed considering making the leap. ESPN's Mel Kiper wrote recently that Peat "likely goes in Round 1" if he declares for the draft early.

Stanford junior T Andrus Peat has submitted paperwork to the NFL's draft advisory board and is considering leaving for the NFL, according to San Jose Mercury News' Jon Wilner.

""Neither guy is ready to make a decision," Cardinal coach David Shaw told the San Jose Mercury News. "But we've had the discussion, which I like to do at the end of the regular season so everybody is on the same page before we go into bowl season." The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder has been talked about as a consensus top 10 prospect, but most rank Cedric Ogbuehi and Brandon Scherff above him.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes Stanford junior T Andrus Peat "likely goes in Round 1" if he declares for the draft early.

"His tape has been far less than perfect at times; he can play a bit high and he's been hit with some holding calls when you feel he shouldn't need to," Kiper wrote. "If he wants to stay at tackle as an NFL rookie, he might need another year of seasoning." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline has reported for a few months now that Peat is leaning towards returning to school because he "enjoys school and college life."

"Latest word from Stanford" is that junior T Andrus Peat will stay another season rather than enter the draft, according to insider Tony Pauline.

Peat "enjoys school and college life," according to Pauline. "He's been disinterested in talk about entering draft all year & family makes education priority #1. See if he changes his mind." That last part is important, as there is plenty of time for Peat to change his mind. Peat has generated a lot off buzz, but he is much more assertive and powerful run blocking than he is in pass protection.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that "there’s no definitive word" about whether or not Stanford junior T Andrus Peat will declare for the draft at present time.

Everybody and their mother is assuming Peat is a goner after this season, but we'll have to wait until over the winter to get word from the horse's mouth. "I’ve been told all along Peat is concentrating on the season at hand and will move his focus towards the draft after the campaign," Pauline wrote. Peat is likely to go in the top half of the first round.

Stanford junior T Andrus Peat ran a 5.12 second forty, had a 30-inch vertical and an 8-7 broad jump at Stanford's junior day in the spring.

Schools conduct mini-combines that allow upcoming draft eligible prospects to work out and accrue non-official combine-style numbers. The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Peat's numbers are decent but not eye-catching, perhaps one reason that many grade superior athletes Cedric Ogbuehi and Brandon Scherff above him.

Stanford junior T Andrus Peat was "the star of the show" in Saturday's loss to Notre Dame, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Cardinal struggled to move the ball, but that can be blamed on Kevin Hogan, Ty Montgomery and the skill position players, as opposed to the offense line, which showed quite well in inclement conditions. "Peat was the star of the show, with some impressive work as a run blocker to go along with a perfect day in pass protection," wrote Gordon McGuinness. The Cardinal offensive line finished with a combined Pass Blocking Efficiency Rating of 93.9 against the Irish.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Stanford junior T Andrus Peat "hasn't played like the future top-10 pick that his skill-set suggests."

"Peat has been up-and-down early this season and hasn't played like the future top-10 pick that his skill-set suggests," Brugler wrote. "He moves so well for his size, but his functional power and patience are concerns." Brugler isn't the only analyst who has recently expressed concern over Peat's play. Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl wrote earlier this week that Peat is still having issues lunging in pass protection. The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder has been talked about as a consensus top 10 prospect, but most rank Cedric Ogbuehi and Brandon Scherff above him.

Stanford junior T Andrus Peat is still having issues lunging in pass protection, according to Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

Weidl calls it a "bad habit," saying the offensive tackle should show more patience and sit back in his stance. Lunging occurs when an offensive tackle over reacts to an pass rushers edge move, and if the defender is good enough they can easily turn the corner. Length, size and functional strength all help prevent the need to waist bend, but only if the blocker knows how to use it.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that Stanford junior T Andrus Peat "will have his hands full" this week, in his match-up against Washington's RS senior DE/OLB Hau'oli Kikaha.

"Arguably the most physically gifted lineman in all of college football, Peat will have his hands full in this match-up against Washington's RS senior DE/OLB Hau'oli Kikaha," Brugler wrote. The match-up between Peat and Kikaha "could be a battle of future first round picks and a match-up that NFL scouts will be tracking with great interest," according to Brugler.

NFL Media Analyst Bucky Brooks believes that Stanford junior T Andrus Peat vs. USC junior DL Leonard Williams "matchup a "must-see" for evaluators looking for dominant players along the line."

"Scouts are expected to be out in droves at the USC-Stanford game to see the battle in the trenches between Peat and Williams. Each prospect carries a high grade heading into the battle, making this matchup a "must-see" for evaluators looking for dominant players along the line," Brooks wrote. Leonard Williams is nursing a high-ankle sprain and will not be 100 percent against the Stanford prospect, but either way, this game tape will weigh heavily in both prospects final evaluation.

The Sporting News' Eric Galko slots Stanford junior T Andrus Peat No. 1 to the Raiders in a mock draft published Wednesday.

"They could use help across their defense, but getting a top-tier offensive tackle to push Donald Penn inside for the future can give this team a tremendous strength on the offensive line to build around Derek Carr," Galko wrote. Earlier this summer, NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks wrote that Peat is "a future franchise tackle to build around," CBS Sports' Rob Rang called him a "remarkable talent," and TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline labeled him an "elite" prospect. The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder is a consensus top 10 prospect, but many rank Cedric Ogbuehi and Brandon Scherff above him.

ESPN's Todd McShay grades Stanford junior T Andrus Peat as the third-best offensive line prospect.

The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder has a wide frame and stunning athleticism. "Peat has the ideal physical tools you look for in a starting NFL left tackle," McShay wrote. "He displays good length, a strong anchor, powerful upper body and excellent overall agility in pass protection. As a run-blocker, he has the power base to drive defenders off the ball. His football instincts appear to be good on tape, and he flashes a nasty side on occasion. He figures to be the anchor of a very good Stanford offensive line this season." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Peat is "elite," but believes he must work on his nasty streak.
