Stanford's Peat named All-American on two other teams

 

Stanford offensive lineman Andrus Peat earned his third All-America honor in as many days on Friday when the offensive tackle was named ESPN.com's All-America team.

Peat was named to the Walter Camp All-America second team on Thursday and was also named to the CBS Sports second team, as well, at offensive tackle.

Peat anchored the Cardinal's offensive line at left tackle in 2014.

Peat was the only returning starter from last season's team on the line, teaming with four classmates in Stanford's 2012 recruiting class for an all-junior unit that helped the Cardinal average 154.8 yards/game on the ground.

With Peat at left tackle, Stanford allowed only 22 sacks this season, 18 fewer than the Cardinal recorded on defense.

Peat was an Outland Trophy quarterfinalist, member of the All-Pac-12 first team and was on the USA Today, SI.com and Athlon's preseason All-America first teams.

Peat has started 26 consecutive games since taking over the starting left tackle job for the 2013 season opener against San Jose State.

The Walter Camp All-America team is the nation's oldest All-America team, now in its 125th season.

Given the teams relative lack of success this year, and the disappointing NFL performance of Jonathan Martin, and with Peat not making first team AA, he would do better to wait a year and mature a bit more, and he could be a first rounder.
