25 reasons to get excited about Saints training camp, No. 25 Peat

Rookie Andrus Peat is No. 25 on our countdown to Saints training camp presented by Verizon

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.
