my question is, does he have the desire to be that good? that is my only concern with him. i see the upside without a doubt.

Re: Saints select offensive lineman Andrus Peat with the 13th pick

I'm fine with taking a tackle. Not so much on taking Peat, however. I felt like La'el Collins would have been a good pick, but for whatever reason teams have turned their backs on him for something he appears to have nothing to do with. That being the case, I didn't like any of the other tackles as first rounders, With Peat and Humphries being my least favorites.

When you read his strengths and weaknesses they're all "he's good at this, this, this and this........ Oh and he also sucks at all those things we just said." That tells me nothing. When I look at some of his footage, he just doesn't look very dominating at all. And you better be dominating the college level if you're going to be a first rounder. To me, he's at best a second round project like Armstead was. Though Terron's physical tools gave us much more to work with.

Obviously I hope he works out, but I just really don't agree with taking such an unpolished player that high.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

I'm not going to lie. I don't think I like this pick. We are gonna have to draft another olineman. But it will have to be fourth round.

Is he gonna be NFL ready? I think this was a panic pick in reaction to Beasley.

Yeah I'm the same, I'll gladly admit I was wrong if it works out but I think it was a hasty decision bearing in mind our real problems on OL are currently at guard.

I would have rather us taken a pass rusher at #13, couple of guys were still there.

Re: Saints select offensive lineman Andrus Peat with the 13th pick

I dont think it was a panic.
In some ways we were very unlucky. Out of the top 15 talents 3 of the players that would have been on our board have major issue last few weeks. Who was really overlooked?
Dupree fell 10-15 spots lower than the media said showing that the men paid to pick players didn't go with the offseason hype. Malcom Brown dropped to 32 when talk was anywhere from 9-25. So who knows.

Peat was the number 1 LT in mocks during the whole college season.
Look at how many of the OT taken the past couple of years struggled year one. Peat has a man with the same size and weight,a team guy to bring him through for the first year if needs be.
spkb25 and FinSaint like this.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!
