Stanford's Andrus Peat joins the growing list of offensive tackle prospects that the Broncos have continued to show interest in. They have had Pittsburgh's T.J. Clemmings and Texas A&M's Cedric Ogbuehi in for a pre-draft visit as well as Colorado States Ty Sambrailo. They have also met with the likes of D.J. Humphries and La'el Collins at other times during the process this offseason.
Peat is a 6'7", 313lb offensive tackle who is considered to be the top left tackle prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft. It would be safe to assume that the talented tackle would be near the top of the Broncos big board come draft night. Unfortunately for the Broncos, there's a good chance that Peat will be long gone by the time they're on the clock.
Peat has the desired traits that Head Coach Gary Kubiak looks for in his offensive lineman. He has light feet for a guy of his size, strong, powerful, and a very good run blocker.
It's becoming obvious that the Broncos believe that the right tackle position is their biggest need heading into the NFL Draft. General Manager John Elway and Head Coach Gary Kubiak have said all the right things about last season's third-round pick Michael Schofield, but their actions are speaking louder than their words. Of course, all this could be one big giant smokescreen and Schofield is the guy at tackle.
