2015 NFL Draft Results: Saints Select Andrus Peat with 13th Overall Pick

New, comments

The Saints have surprised everyone by not taking a defensive player, instead selecting offensive tackle Andrus Peat with their first of two first round 2015 NFL Draft picks.

With the 13th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the New Orleans Saints have selected offensive tackle Andrus Peat from Stanford.

At 6'7" 313-pounds, Peat is a mammoth of a man. Most of that weight is in his lower body, which is great for an offensive tackle. Peat is the son of Todd Peat, who played 6 years in the NFL as an offensive lineman.

Not sure what this means for the futures of tackles Terron Armstead and/or Zach Strief but their seats just got a little hotter. Obviously, protecting Drew Brees is a top priority for the Saints front office.

The Saints aren't finished tonight, however. They still have the 31st overall pick remaining in the first round so stay tuned.
