Stanford junior T Andrus Peat "plays upright and overextends too much," wrote NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah.
The entire analysis doesn't read quite as incendiary: "[Peat] has a massive frame and quick feet but he plays upright and overextends too much," Jeremiah wrote. "He does have strong hands to torque and turn in [the] run game." That combination of size and speed make Peat a dynamic run blocker, though his propensity to stand up has led to struggles when he's on an island in pass protection. Peat announced he will enter the 2015 NFL Draft earlier this week. Jan 7 - 1:37 PM

Stanford junior T Andrus Peat announced he will enter the 2015 NFL Draft.

Peat appeared to waver back and forth on his decision for the 2015 season, but this is the expected choice. Many first-round left tackles have struggled early on in the NFL. We love how strong Peat is in the running game, however, he has his struggles holding up on an island in pass protection. He does not exhibit the same strength and assertiveness as he does moving forward.

Contrary to media reports, Stanford junior T Andrus Peat has not made a final decision regarding the NFL Draft, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"[Peat] met with the Cardinal coaching staff yesterday but I'm told no final decision," Pauline reported. "Sources expect word later this week." Pauline is directly refuting Yahoo Sports writer Rand Getlin's Monday report that Peat will enter the draft. "Peat is weighing his desire to return to college versus the economic advantage of turning pro," Pauline added. Stay tuned.

Stanford junior T Andrus Peat will enter the 2015 NFL Draft, according to Rand Getlin.

Peat seemed to waver on his decision for some time despite many expecting he would leave for the draft. The Stanford left tackle has earned a lot of praise throughout his career, and some of that honestly is due to the program he comes from. We think Peat is very strong as a run blocker, but he has more than the occasional issue in pass protection.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that news about Stanford junior T Andrus Peat's NFL intentions is non-existent.

"I inquired about Andrus Peat and was told all quiet on the western front as no one has been told about agent meetings or otherwise for the Stanford tackle," Pauline wrote. This reports jives with everything written about Peat over the last several months. Most recently, Yahoo Sports' Rand Getlin reported in mid-December that Peat was "on the fence" about turning pro. ESPN's Mel Kiper writes that Peat "likely goes in Round 1" if he declares for the draft early.

Yahoo Sports' Rand Getlin reports Stanford junior T Andrus Peat is "on the fence" about turning pro.

Typically, a first-round projection prompts underclassmen to declare early. Of course, every year, we see a player or two with such a projection surprise the draft community and return to school. In the case of Peat, it wouldn't be the biggest surprise, as he's constantly said that he's undecided about entering the pros early. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline has reported that Peat is leaning towards returning to school because he "enjoys school and college life." 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 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.

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.
