"I was a tackle before I was a guard. It's going to feel comfortable eventually," he said. "I've just gotta get in there and get reps. I guess you just see a different type of rusher (at tackle).

The initial thought is that this is the most athletic combination of linemen possible. Peters is the only true big guy at 340 (or more). Herremans lists at 321, but looks skinnier than that. I’d bet he’s more in the 300 range. Todd hasn’t played RT in a long time so this move isn’t without risk. You are shifting your best OG to a spot that he’s rusty at. You also now have Peters needing to get used to Evan Mathis being beside him.
