2015 NFL Draft prospect profile: OT Andrus Peat

The Backup Punter

OT Andrus Peat  –  Stanford

6’7   –   315lbs


Andrus Peat is a former 5-star recruit out of Arizona, and the son of 7-year NFL tackle Todd Peat.  At 6’7, 315lbs, he’s got a well proportioned body that doesn’t look heavy in any area, and he’ll be one of the strongest OT prospects in this class.  While Brandon Scherff may have a narrow edge to be the first offensive lineman selected, Peat could surpass him.

He is an interesting player at left tackle because he seems to dominate more as a run blocker than as a pass blocker.  In the running game, he tilts forward and uses his huge body and mile-long arms to clear lanes.  His balance isn’t always flawless as he moves forward or across formations, but being the wrecking ball that he is, that might be OK.

Triple H Sent WWE Title Belt to the Patriots

Basking in the glow of their fourth Lombardi Trophy, the Patriots added another piece of hardware to their trophy case—a championship belt, courtesy of the WWE.
Of course, famous (but actually unpopular!) WWE superstar John Cena is a die-hard Pats fan, but it looks like his in-ring rival Triple H hooked up New England in this instance.

The belt’s appearance in New England’s Super Bowl parade continues a long history of athletes with championship belts.
Rasheed Wallace famously rocked one during his Detroit Pistons days. LeSean McCoy of the Eagles had his own belt, which spurred LeBron James to acquire his own via The Rock, so then James made the next logical move and bought belts for his entire (then-Miami Heat) team.
It’s unclear what the street value of a WWE Championship belt is now. One has to imagine the price dropped considerably when LeBron bought them for his entire team. Also, for such an important piece of WWE lore—fans are enraged that Royal Rumble winner Roman Reigns even has a shot at the belt—it sure seems like the WWE doesn’t mind handing out the belts like moderately-priced hard candy.
Still, the proliferation of WWE culture can only be a good thing for the wrestling outfit’s brand. It even has a chance to be the second-best partnership the company has ever had.

Rehab for Johnny Manziel?

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel entered a rehab program last week, seeking help after a season in which he made more headlines for partying than for his play on the field.

“Johnny knows there are areas in which he needs to improve in order to be a better family member, friend and teammate and he thought the off-season was the right time to take this step,” Brad Beckworth, a family friend and adviser, told Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot. “On behalf of Johnny and his family, we’re asking for privacy until he rejoins the team in Cleveland.”

He entered the facility, the name of which was not revealed, last Wednesday. Nor was the problem for which he is seeking treatment specified.

Browns General Manager Ray Farmer said in a statement released by the team:

“We respect Johnny’s initiative in this decision and will fully support him throughout this process. Our players’ health and well-being will always be of the utmost importance to the Cleveland Browns. We continually strive to create a supportive environment and provide the appropriate resources, with our foremost focus being on the individual and not just the football player.

“Johnny’s privacy will be respected by us during this very important period and we hope that others will do the same.”

Johnny Football, the 22nd pick in the first round of the NFL draft, struggled mightily to grow into the NFL game, despite a glittering resume that included a Heisman Trophy. He often spoke of wanting to be the Browns’ starter and of taking his job and himself seriously, then turned up on social media partying with friends and celebrities. The cycle was repeated often throughout the season, with the result that by the end the Browns were ready to look elsewhere for a quarterback.

On the last week of the season, Manziel, who turned 22 in December, said he wanted to be “the guy” for the Browns, then, four days later, he failed to show up for treatment for an injured hamstring before the season finale. The team sent security to find his home to make sure he was fine and ESPN cites sources who found a player “they felt clearly had partied hard the night before.”

A source told ESPN that “Johnny’s his own worst enemy.”

Odell Beckham Jr, NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year

The choice for 2014 NFL offensive rookie of the year was an easy one.

Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who shook off an injury-plagued start of the season to become one of the league’s most exciting playmakers, has been named the NFL’s offensive rookie of the year. The award was announced on Saturday night at the NFL Honors event in Phoenix.

The award went to Beckham, who “got 42 of the 50 votes”. Second was Dallas Cowboys guard Zack Martin with seven votes while Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans got the last vote. Beckham and Hill, along with wide receiver Jarvis Landry, were teammates at LSU last year.

“We’d be in the middle of our game and they would be playing and I’d be looking up at the (scoreboard) trying to see what they’re doing, trying to see if they scored,” Beckham said. “Those are like my brothers. I want to see them be successful. We’re really very tight.”

Beckham said there was no competition with Hill’s five 100-yard games.

“That’s like a brother of mine, we just want to see each other do well,” he said. “Look out for Jarvis, too. He’s a beast down in Miami.
Congrats to ODB3!
