Rank Among Leaders
Payton: Andrus Peat won't compete for Saints' starting tackle spot
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) Despite drafting Stanford tackle Andrus Peat in the first round, Saints coach Sean Payton doesn't see him competing for a starting spot.
"I don’t see that initially," Payton said, per Saints.com.
The Saints have veterans Zach Strief and Terron Armstead at the two tackle spots.
"Terron and Zach we feel are ones of veteran experience," Payton said. "One’s a tremendous leader for us at right tackle and one’s a real sharp and talented left tackle. Andrus will come in and I’m sure we’ll give him reps at both positions."
Moving Peat to guard isn't an option. "I don’t see that. He’s a tackle," Payton said.
