ESPN's Todd McShay is concerned about Stanford T Andrus Peat's lack of finishing ability, but sees him as the class' best pure left tackle.
The analyst ranks Peat No. 12 overall. "I wish he were a little stronger as a finisher, but more so than any prospect in this class, he has the combination of elite length (6-foot-7, 313 pounds with 34 3/8-inch arms) and agility to project as a very successful left tackle in the NFL," McShay wrote. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported earlier this month that he continues to "hear a buzz" about Iowa's Brandon Scherff and Peat going Nos. 8 and 9. We know the Giants like Peat. Apr 20 - 8:37 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora believes Stanford T Andrus Peat "is good fit" for the New York Giants, and continues to "hear a buzz" about Scherff and Peat going in the No.8 and No.9 spots.

"The Giants have to continue reworking their offensive line and it remains an area of concern and this kid is good fit. I'm not sure if its being reflected in the media much, but teams like him a lot and New York needs a tackle. I continue to hear a buzz about Scherff and Peat going in these two slots," La Canfora wrote. The 6-foot-7, 313-pound Peat would be able to come in and compete right away for the starting job at right tackle, and then could be groomed to eventually replace Will Beatty at left tackle.

Two of three CBS draft analysts mock Stanford T Andrus Peat No. 22 overall to the Bengals.

Cincinnati needs help along both lines and would love to add a tackle with LT Andrew Whitworth and RT Andre Smith both health question marks and one year from free agency. Dane Brugler and Rob Rang both have them taking Peat, though Frank Cooney sees La'el Collins as the best fit. "The last time the Bengals drafted a LSU offensive lineman, the franchise landed a Pro Bowl left tackle (Andrew Whitworth, 2006 second-round pick) and history could repeat itself if Collins is still on the board for Cincinnati in round one," Cooney wrote. "Like Whitworth, it might not always look pretty, but Collins consistently gets the job done and offers versatility to play tackle or guard, serving as the protege for 33-year old Whitworth."

Stanford T Andrus Peat compares to Jake Long, in the estimation of ESPN's Steve Muench.

Meanwhile, ESPN Stats & Information Group's Sharon Katz comps Peat to Gabe Carimi, Kyle Long and Anthony Castonzo based on measurables. "The Castonzo comparison is the most accurate of the three, and like Castonzo, Peat is capable of securing a starting job on Day 1," Muench wrote. "The best comparison for Peat may be Jake Long. He's not as polished as Long was when Miami took him first overall in 2008, but they were both above-average run-blockers with the smarts, length and power to overcome athletic limitations and protect the blind side at the NFL level." Peat (6-foot-7, 313 pounds) is basically the same size as Castonzo coming out of Boston College in 2011. Peat is a "closer match to Carimi or Long athletically," according to Katz.

The Rams "have clear interest in many of the top offensive line prospects in the draft," reports ESPN's Nick Wagoner.

Andrus Peat and Jamon Brown have already visited, and Wagoner has heard that Miami's Ereck Flowers and Pittsburgh's T.J. Clemmings might be next in line to visit the team's facilities. "It wouldn't surprise if Brandon Scherff was also on a long list of potential offensive line visitors," Wagoner wrote. "The Rams seem comfortable with the idea of going with a young, inexperienced line next year at this point."

Stanford T Andrus Peat "may be the best ready-to-go, pass-blocking tackle in this draft and should have a better career than his dad," wrote CBS Sports' Frank Cooney.

Peat's father, Todd, was an 11th-round pick in 1987 who played seven years of offensive line for the St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals and Los Angeles Raiders. "Scouts suggest Peat lacks a mean streak or toughness, but they rave about that agile footwork and ability to slide and glide into the face of pass rushers," Cooney wrote. "However, he had one nightmarish game against Utah's pass-rushing outside linebacker Nate Orchard that remains a bad chapter on his resume." The prospect believes his Stanford experience will ease his transition into the NFL. "The pro style scheme has really prepared me. It's a great culture of offensive linemen: David DeCastro, Cameron Fleming, David Yankey. My coaches have prepared me," Peat said.

Stanford T Andrus Peat is scheduled to visit the Jets on Thursday, according to Kimberly A. Martin.

We aren't sure where Peat could be targeted in the draft. He is almost certainly a first-round pick, but No. 6 is not in his projected range. Peat is extremely powerful moving forward in the running game but lacks the same strength in pass protection and gives up a handful of negative plays per game. He will likely stay on the left side in the NFL.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Stanford T Andrus Peat as the No. 2 offensive lineman in the class.

Peat finds himself looking up at only Iowa OL Brandon Scherff. "Peat has the physical tools to be an upper-echelon run blocker with pass-protection ability, but he needs to improve his technique in order to protect with consistency," Zierlein wrote. "Peat has been well-coached and is one of the most game-ready offensive linemen in this year's draft." Peat compares to Charles Spencer, according to the analyst. A second-team All-American in 2014, Peat is expected to go in the middle of Round 1. Peat has one major thing going for him: He's arguably the only prospect in the class that scouts believe with 90-percent-plus certainty will be an NFL starter at left tackle.

Stanford T Andrus Peat "worked out better at left tackle than at right tackle" at Stanford's pro day, according to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

"Peat -- who has 33 3/4-inch arms -- had a good pro day workout. He actually worked out better at left tackle than at right tackle, which is good for him. Peat is the son of Todd Peat, who played six seasons as a guard in the NFL," Brandt wrote. The Stanford prospect posted a 10 1/2-foot broad jump, and stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. At the combine, Peat ran a solid 40 time(5.18), with a 4.62 short shuttle.

Stanford T Andrus Peat reminds Sports Illustrated's Doug Farrar of D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Joe Thomas.

"There are times when Peat absolutely kills it on his tape—at 6'7'' and 313 pounds, he has the range and athleticism to dominate enemy defenders at the highest level," Farrar wrote. "Once he gets his feet set and his arms up in pass protection, it's all over. But I do question Peat's ability to run-block consistently, and while I would never question his 'finisher's mentality' as some have done, there are times when I would like to see a little more nastiness from him. And it may be easier to get better and more technique than it is to develop that hard-ass edge. I could be wrong about Peat, and I do love his tape overall, but I'd hesitate on picking him unless I was sure that he was going to bring that attitude to my team." Interestingly, Peat has become perhaps the draft's most divisive tackle. Curious, that, as he's one of the only elite OT prospects who evaluators are certain can remain at left tackle.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks ranked Stanford T Andrus Peat as the No. 1 OT in his most recent dispatch of position rankings.

Peat jumped up from No. 4 in Brooks' last installment. Why did Peat leap Brandon Scherff, Cedric Ogbuehi and La'el Collins? "Peat is certainly making a compelling case to evaluators that he has the tools to play the marquee position as a pro," Brooks wrote. "He is as technically sound as any player at the position, yet he also possesses the size, strength and balance to handle power rushers off the edge." At the combine, the 6-foot-7, 313-pounder had a good 40 time (5.18), broad jump (8-9) and short shuttle (4.62).

ESPN's Todd McShay wrote that the "Saints, Texans and Lions would all make sense for [Stanford T Andrus Peat], and a team looking for a left tackle could potentially snag him earlier."

"He's kind of got a unique body type, as he's very thick in the lower body, but his numbers were very good," McShay wrote. "He's a young prospect at just 21 years old, so there's a lot of potential for him to get better, and he's the most talented left tackle prospect in this class. He had his ups and downs if you watch the tape, but his best performances were excellent (particularly versus Washington)." Peat is coming off a great combine. The 6-foot-7, 313-pounder had a good 40 time (5.18), broad jump (8-9) and short shuttle (4.62).

An NFL scout said Stanford T Andrus Peat is "the most talented (O-lineman)."

"Ready-made NFL player," another scout said. "Left tackle or right tackle. Little bit like Jake Matthews. He won't be an overly dominating type athlete but just sound. Bigger than Jake. A very good, solid player, no question about it." Peat patterns his game after Cowboy Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith. The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder has 34 3/8-inch arms and 10 5/8-inch hands.

Stanford T Andrus Peat patterns his game after Cowboy Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith.

Peat called himself a "knee-bender with long arms." Smith, of course, was a raw prospect nonetheless drafted in the top 10 who then blossomed into an elite talent. Smith is an astute yard marker for Peat to measure himself after. The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder, who started 26 consecutive games to close out his collegiate career, is a dynamic run blocker who has thus far lacked assertiveness when on an island in pass protection. Perhaps, like Smith, he will clean up his issues quickly in the pros.

Stanford T Andrus Peat made his debut at No. 14 on Mel Kiper's Big Board.

Peat also leaped from Kiper's No. 5 OT to No. 2 in a recent dispatch of positional rankings. "The more time I spend on Peat the more I think he has the ability to be a good left tackle in the NFL, and that makes him pretty valuable," Kiper wrote. "He's got the frame you want, with a thick lower half but good length, and the feet are pretty good. Where he'll get himself in trouble is in giving too much respect to good speed-rushers and losing the fundamentals. Peat can show impressive power going downhill and he'll de-cleat a defender when he gets to turn inside and block down. I'm more sold on the upside than I was at times during the year." The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder is likely to hear his name called on Day 1.
