Some of the NFL’s top pass rushers do it during the offseason, and the same goes for defensive backs and wide receivers.

Now, it’s time to include NFL offensive linemen as a position group getting together during the offseason to share ideas on playing at a high level in the league.

Philadelphia Eagles tackle Lane Johnson and offensive line analyst Duke Manyweather played host to 47 players — including Saints left tackle Terron Armstead, left guard Andrus Peat, tackle Marshall Newhouse and rookie center Erik McCoy — at the second annual OL Masterminds Summit on July 12-14 in Frisco, Texas.



Over the three-day period, attendees to the invite-only event spend time in a classroom environment breaking down film and participating in group discussions, and then go on an indoor field to conduct training exercises on technique.

“Great experience,” said Armstead, who also attended the inaugural 2018 gathering. “I would say it was extremely productive, as well. Just getting around these guys throughout the league, some of the best minds and best athletes in the game, and just throwing out ideas, set plans, the way people watch film can only be beneficial.”

The list of attendees is essentially a who’s who among the NFL’s top offensive linemen and even some of the country’s top college players.

In addition to Johnson, a 2017 All-Pro selection and two-time Pro Bowler, the 2019 list of attendees included Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro right tackle Mitchell Schwartz, Chicago Bears Pro Bowl tackle Charles Leno Jr., Eagles Pro Bowl guard Brandon Brooks, Oakland Raiders tackle Trent Brown and Patriots guard Shaq Mason, among others.

Peat, who was selected to the 2018 Pro Bowl, said he has trained in the past with Manyweather during the offseason months and attended the gathering for the first time in July.

The Saints’ starting left guard immediately came away impressed with the workshop and interactions with peers from other teams.

“There’s just a lot of knowledge in the room,” Peat said. “It was pretty interesting just seeing other guys in the league — the top guys in the league at All-Pro, Pro Bowlers — and their approach to the game. I was just trying to be a student and learning from those guys and seeing how it is with them.”

I just wonder if Peat picked any tips on conditioning?

I hope PEAT gets a lot of snaps tonight.

He is a crucial piece to that O line. Can't be sucking air, missing blocks in crunch time.

What an awesome idea for O linemen.

How could anyone think it wasn't?

Peat is a good player but he's just a little soft. He came in out of shape his first season and it took him quite some time to get in shape. He doesn't look cut or muscle bound like most linemen. Don't get me wrong I like the guy and he's played through injuries but I wish he was tougher.
