So far New Orleans Saints fans have only seen Andrus Peat running around the field in a helmet but the team's first first-round pick (No. 13 out of Stanford) will get to don pads for the team's first training camp practice at The Greenbrier.
Seeing the 6-foot-7, 313-pound offensive tackle in pads should be a delightful sight for Saints fans and a scary one for their opponents. Peat is a mountain of a man with tree trunks for legs but posseses the agility of a much smaller player.
As usual, Saints Coach Sean Payton said it best when explaining why the Saints drafted Peat:
"This guy has all the things you look for. He is smart. He is big. He is very athletic."
Watching Peat in the one-on-one pass-blocking drills should be a must for any fans attending training camp in West Virginia or Metairie.
