Kansas City Chiefs Scouting Report: Andrus Peat


The Kansas City Chiefs hold the 18th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft and have several different paths they can take with their first round selection. If the Chiefs decide to address the offensive line, Andrus Peat is the most realistic and probably the best option.

Peat played his college football with Stanford, and is considered an offensive tackle. He has experience on both the left and the right side, which bodes well for Kansas City.

Peat has been linked with Kansas City several times throughout this crazy off season, but a lot of that came before the offensive line had been addressed in free agency. Todd McShay did, however, have the Chiefs going after Florida State center Cameron Erving in his fourth mock draft, which was released on Monday.

Interestingly enough, McShay predicted Andrus Peat would still be available when the Chiefs were on the clock. He had them passing obviously, taking Erving, and Peat would fall to the 21st pick, where the Cincinnati Bengals snatched him up.

"Peat struggles against power at times, but has all the tools to develop into a good starting NFL left tackle.– McShay (Note: The rest of his analysis was solely about the Bengals, which I didn’t see the need to post here)"

A few weeks ago, I compiled my own mock draft and I actually had the Kansas City Chiefs selecting Andrus Peat with the 18th overall pick. I liked drafting Peat due to the strong possibility that he’d be able to come in and start on the offensive line immediately.

Now that the Chiefs acquired both Ben Grubbs and Paul Fanaika, the offensive line isn’t as much as a priority, but I’d still be thrilled if Peat came to Kansas City. Lance Zierlein of NFL.com said that Peat is a powerful drive blocker, but also struggles to move his feet while blocking laterally.

  • "Big and powerful with a right tackle’s play strength and demeanor, but enough foot quickness to protect on the left side. Peat has the physical tools to be an upper-echelon run blocker with pass-protection ability, but he needs to improve his technique in order to protect with consistency. Peat has been well-coached and is one of the most game-ready offensive linemen in this year’s draft."

    Andrus Peat would be an excellent fit for an offensive line that struggled in 2014. Alex Smith was sacked 45 times and rarely had time to make plays as a result. It’s time for the offensive line to go back to the good ol’ days and actually protecting the quarterback. Without a solid offensive line, Smith will continue to play it safe by either scrambling or throwing the ball away.
