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. Oct 24 - 8:04 PM

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.

NFL.com grades Stanford junior T Andrus Peat as the 15th-best player in college football.

"Pro-ready offensive tackle with impressive technical skills and athleticism," said panelist Bucky Brooks. The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder with a wide frame and stunning athleticism showed evaluators he could neutralize elite rushers in the Pac-12 last season. "Has the prototypical left tackle's size but has the athleticism to play tight end," said Bryan Fischer. Added Chase Goodbread: "In Peat, the Cardinal has the most gifted pass protector on the West Coast, and a relentlessly hard worker to boot."

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline labels Stanford junior T Andrus Peat an "elite" prospect.

"There’s a good amount of NFL talent on the Stanford roster yet only a single prospect I label elite," Pauline wrote. "Peat has the size, athleticism and footwork to start on the left side in the NFL. I’d just wish he’d develop a nasty streak." The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder with a wide frame and stunning athleticism showed evaluators that he could handle himself against elite rushers in the Pac-12 last season. Peat is a superb athlete who is a premium technician.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang sees in Stanford junior T Andrus Peat a "remarkable talent."

At 6-foot-6, 315 pounds with a wide frame and stunning athleticism, we know what he's talking about. "He has long arms, broad shoulders and good weight distribution with tree trunks for thighs," Rang wrote. "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." Rang, however, believes Peat must work on coming off the ball lower, exploding his hips into opponents on contact, and eliminating the propensity to get lazy and bend at the waist in pass protection.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks believes Stanford junior T Andrus Peat is "a future franchise tackle to build around."

"With Peat already displaying a game that's mature beyond his years, the Stanford standout is squarely on the radar of evaluators looking for a future franchise tackle to build around," Brooks wrote. The 6-foot-6, 315-pound junior showed evaluators that he could handle himself against elite rushers in the Pac-12 last season. In his first year as a starter for Stanford, Brooks mentions that Peat "was sensational, mauling defenders at the point of attack on runs and shadowing slippery pass rushers off the edges."

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes Stanford junior T Andrus Peat "still has work to do in terms of technique, patience and playing with better balance."

"But man does he have an enormous ceiling," Weidl drooled. The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Peat is likely to declare for the draft after this season, and experts are calling him a potential top 10 pick. In addition to his ideal NFL size, Peat is a superb athlete who is a premium technician, as you'd expect from a Stanford product. "Peat is thick (tree trunks for legs), powerful and very athletic/agile," Weidl wrote.
Jun 6 - 8:44 PM

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes Stanford sophomore Ts Andrus Peat and Kyle Murphy both showed a lot of upside as freshmen.

It will be quite a while until these two are draft eligible, but both stood out as true freshmen in 2012. David Yankey is moving insider to guard, so Peat will likely start at left tackle after seeing snaps there in 13 games last season. Kyle Murphy should start on the right side after starting two in that spot in 2012.
