White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. – It’d be understandable if Andrus Peat’s head was swimming even more than the average rookie. Because Peat, the first of the New Orleans Saints’ two first-round picks (No. 13 overall), isn’t the average rookie.

The mammoth left tackle (6 feet 7, 316 pounds in your program) also has stood in as a gargantuan right tackle for New Orleans, as well as a massive left guard and a sun-blocking, shade-providing right guard.

In short, he has played every offensive line position except center during training camp at The Greenbrier. And while playing left and right tackle in the preseason opener against Baltimore, Peat took the most offensive snaps of any Saints player, about 81 percent of New Orleans’ 62 plays.

“He did pretty decent, he did pretty well,” Coach Sean Payton said. “He had a couple plays that I’m sure he can clean up but I thought, overall, it was a good start for him.”

“I felt pretty good,” Peat said. “A little sore, but I felt like it was a good opportunity for me to get some game reps and I felt good after the game.

“There are some things I did good, and my coach (Bret Ingalls) told me good job. And some little things, my technique and stuff like that, to improve on. So it wasn’t a perfect game by any stretch of the imagination, but I feel like it’s a good start for me.”

He took more snaps than anyone else in the B&G scrimmage as well.

Many people were getting on to him for not running those 8 100's after the scrimmage when he had played MOST of it. I didn't get that.

Hell if I would have played one series (even a 3 & out) I would be over there sucking oxygen or something!
