Peat’s arms are longer than the other two prospects and when it comes to left tackles, arm length is very important. It’s like boxing in that it’s your advantage to be able to touch someone from a longer distance than they can touch you. That means you can touch them before they can touch you and in both sports, the guy that lands the first clean punch usually wins.

Put that arm length together with the incredibly nimble feet Peat has and a speed-rusher off the edge with have problems. As Jaime Dukes of the NFL Network once said on NFL Total Access, “You have to be a dancing bear to be a left tackle.” Ogbuehi has good feet too while Scherff is a little behind in that department and in getting out of his stance and into his kick-slide.

Then you put that together with Peat’s big, strong legs and you have a complete left tackle that can anchor for a bull rush and run-block.
