Andrus Peat took a little longer than most to take his first real steps in the NFL.

Thanks to an NFL rule that doesn’t allow rookies to begin workouts with their teams until their school’s academic year has finished, Peat missed the first two organized team activity sessions and participated in only about half of the Saints’ full-team workouts before the squad broke for the summer.

Peat could do nothing about the practices he had to miss but, by the end of New Orleans’ mandatory minicamp, the Saints’ top draft pick felt the difference.

“I really wish I could’ve been here,” he said. “I feel like I’m a little bit behind, because I wasn’t out on the field and actually taking the reps, as opposed to just FaceTiming my coach and going through the playbook that way.”

If he can move those big tree trunks well he should become a hell of an offensive lineman.

Time is irrelevant. He'll be taking the job. Question is - will he be ready?

Nope... There's nothing wrong with Strief; or Armstead for that matter. Peat doesn't see the field this year.

slow sloppy footwork was the number one knock against him. that is why he was ranked from a top 10 pick all the way to late one to early two. some say it can be cleaned up other say it is a possibility.

i can see him doing some spot duty and getting some solid playing time in his first year. if all goes well he should be ready to push next year for the starters job. worse case he turns into a year 3 project.

at least he will be the first up to backup. that is a huge improvement. a bit high priced one but an improvement none the less.

i still am not to crazy about the pick that high for him but i am in the school of, give the kid time and lets see what we got.
