The New Orleans Saints drafted Stanford offensive tackle Andrus Peat with the thirteenth pick in the NFL Draft. Peat left Stanford after his junior year to enter the NFL Draft.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, he ran a 5.18 40 yard dash, while weighing in at 313 lbs and a height of 6'7". 

He was voted second team All-American this season, and was an Outland Trophy finalist. In 2013, he was voted the team's most outstanding sophomore.

According to nfl.com, his strengths include "above average understanding of protections." Also noted in his profile is "tall with a thick lower body and a well-proportioned frame."

His weaknesses include "left tackle displaying edge fear," along with "gets stuck on first block too long, allowing second level rushers to escape over top"

His future looks bright in New Orleans, where he will be tasked with protecting the blind side on Drew Brees and block for Melvin Ingram Jr. He looks to be the future on the right-side of the offensive line especially when you consider that Zach Strieft and Jahri Evans are both on the wrong side of 30.
