Stanford T Andrus Peat "won’t get past the St Louis Rams at 10 and could be selected even earlier," reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"New York Giants perhaps?" Pauline wrote. The 6-foot-7, 313-pound Peat has been compared to Jake Long, D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Joe Thomas based on ability and Gabe Carimi, Kyle Long and Anthony Castonzo on measurables. Peat (6-foot-7, 313 pounds) is basically the same size as Castonzo coming out of Boston College in 2011. Peat posted a 10 1/2-foot broad jump at his pro day and ran a 5.18 forty at the combine.

Stanford T Andrus Peat ranked in the top 10 in both pass-blocking and run-blocking efficiency in College Football Focus' rankings.

He would have been even higher were it not for a subpar performance versus Utah's Nate Orchard and Oregon. The 6-foot-7, 313-pound Peat has been compared to Jake Long, D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Joe Thomas on ability and Gabe Carimi, Kyle Long and Anthony Castonzo based on measurables.

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.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang cautions that "run-stuffers like [Stanford DT David Parry] have a tendency to slip on draft day."

This is a byproduct of the league becoming more pass happy. "[Run-stuffers] still have a place in the NFL, however, and this former walk-on plays with the intensity and strength to 'surprise' as a Day 3 or even free-agent pick who will make an NFL roster," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-2, 305-pounder should go on late Day 2 or early on Day 3.

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 WR Ty Montgomery will visit the Seahawks, according to Rand Getlin.

We doubt Montgomery is selected prior to the fourth round, as he struggles with many of the basic receiver skills. There are drop issues as well as sustaining speed in his routes. But Montgomery can make plays with the ball in his hands with straight-line speed and power on contact. He is a manufactured touch player at this point in his career.
Apr 1 - 9:12 AM

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.

Stanford WR Ty Montgomery said he performed better at his pro day than at the combine because he was lighter and was also able to get more rest.

"I was lighter and felt more flexible," said Montgomery. "I've shed 10 pounds and got my stride back. ... Most importantly, I was able to sleep. At the combine, I got no sleep. I didn't go to bed until 1:30 a.m. and woke up at 6 a.m. to go perform. I didn't do horribly, but I did a lot better out here." Montgomery measured in at 5-foot-11 3/4 and 211 pounds, more than two inches shorter and nine pounds lighter than his listed dimensions. CBS reported that he ran 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash at Stanford's scouting event, while NFL.com's Gil Brandt reported seperate times of 4.51 and 4.5. Regardless, Montgomery spoke to Texans director of college scouting Jon Carr after his drills and was put through additional pass-catching work, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Stanford LB A.J. Tarpley spoke with the Washington Redskins after his pro day workout.

Tarpley was the "surprise of the day" at Stanford's event, according to the analyst, posting a 40 time of around 4.70 seconds. He added a short shuttle of about 4.0 seconds, 24 reps on the bench and 34 inches in the vertical jump. "I'm told Tarpley himself was pleased with his entire day as he looked good in position drills," Pauline wrote.

Stanford WR Ty Montgomery "ran solid routes and caught the ball better than expected" at his pro day workout, noted TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"At the end of the pro day, he was taken aside by Houston Texans director of college scouting Jon Carr and put through additional pass-catching work," Pauline added. Montgomery clocked 4.5 and 4.51 forties on Friday after putting up a 4.55 time at the combine. The Standford wideout has been dubbed a "slightly better version of Josh Cribbs" by CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.
Mar 22 - 7:40 PM

Stanford OLB James Vaughters put up great testing numbers at the school's pro day, but "was not nearly as impressive in position drills, looking stiff and unsure of himself," reported TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Vaughters hoisted up a spectacular 35 reps on the bench, touched 32.5 inches in the vertical jump and clocked in the mid-4.8-second range in the 40. That was all good and well, but Vaughters struggled when he took the field. We're a bit surprised by the dichotomy, as Vaughters doesn't always look athletic during games, accruing production more from hustle and sheer strength. Vaughters was not invited to the NFL combine.
