Draft Analysis:

"If you look at the right side of the Saints' offensive line, Jahri Evans and Zach Strief are both in their 30s. Peat will help solidify the Saints' entire front. I really like his upside, but I thought there were some inconsistencies in his play." -- Mike Mayock

He was rated a five-star prospect by Rivals at Corona del Sol (Ariz.) high school and a USA Today, Parade, SuperPrep and PrepStar All-American. He was named Frank Kush Offensive Lineman of the Year and also lettered in basketball.

Pro Day Results

Broad jump: 10 feet 1/2 inch



Tall with a thick lower body and well-proportioned frame. Has good knee bend and movement for a power player. Shows some bounce in his feet. Gains plenty of ground on kick slide but keeps his weight under him. Able to transition from pass set to power step inside to close down inside moves. Hand placement generally good in run and pass. Plays with a strong, wide base. Above-average understanding of protections. Instinctive against twists and reacts quickly to them. Able to drop his anchor in pass protection. Powerful drive blocker with explosive hips. Plays with leverage and leg drive to mow down overmatched defenders. Punishes defensive tackles when asked to secure with a down-block. Once he locks out, has the anchor and power to end his opponent's chances.


Left tackle displaying some edge fear. Technique breaks down when facing wide rushers with juice off the snap. Opens up prematurely and turns into a lunger. Waist-bender. Will lead with head and hands, hoping to land a strike and engulf the edge speed. Needs to improve angle of pass sets against speed. Has direction-change issues when moving in space. Gets stuck to first block too long, allowing second-level target to escape over top. Has issues with sustaining blocks on second level and doesn't always work feet to improve positioning when blocking laterally.

Bottom Line

Big and powerful with a right tackle's play strength and demeanor, but enough foot quickness to protect on the left side. 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. Peat has been well-coached and is one of the most game-ready offensive linemen in this year's draft.
