Grading the New Orleans Saints 1st Round Selection of the 2015 NFL Draft

Player Selected: Andrus Peat OT, Stanford Initial Reaction: Don’t get me wrong I love Andrus Peat and his towering 6’7 frame.

Good player, just think they could of gotten a more impactful guy at 13.Disclaimer: I agree you can’t grade a player before they even put a...
