Default Antwan Peek

I have noticed that everybody thinks Peek will be a DE. But Im not sure if he is big enough although he could add weight but that might make him loose his quickness. So my question is does anybody actually know his exact height and weight?
Espn has him listed at 6'3 238
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...e?statsId=6403

NFL has him listed at 6'3 238
http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/396057

Texans website has him listed at 6'3 250
http://www.houstontexans.com/team/ro...l.php?PRKey=54

If he realy is 250 then I could see him playing DE. But if he weighs 238 im not so sure he can be more than a situational pass rusher.

I think Babin is more suited to play the DE than Peek but that's just me...

Peek will destroy Babin in head to head competition for RDE. 10+ sacks and a highly sought-after UFA next year unless he's extended.

Peek's game seems to be suited as a pass rushing DE

Well that's what a lot of people were predicting for him last year when he got
his first opportunity to be a full time starter. But that was the 3-4 and he'll
be in the 4-3 this year, so I dunno.....perhaps he'll hit double digits.
I do know if him, or Babin, or somebody has that kind of sack total next year, it will probably mean that our D has had a much better season compared to
previous years.

I heard on the radio a few weeks ago when he did an interview that he weighed in at 262 with 18% body fat. I don't know what kind of indication the body fat has, but 262 sounds like a good playing weight for a pass-rushing DE.

18% body fat is kind of high for a professional athlete, especially a LB. This also means that he will mostly likely work off 6-7% through workouts this offseason quickly. I would think that he would way about 247 by preseason gae=me 1

Also, it should probably be pointed out that Peek has not been playing in a 3-point stance in awhile. All his sacks over the past years have been from an upright LB positioning, meaning his is not on the ground and initiating first contact with the OL. Babin, on the other hand, has played in a 3-point stance more recently, and even moved up to the line last season on certain defensive sets to occupy blockers. I feel that he may have an edge over Peek, even though Peek's sack numbers have been a little higher. Why do you think that our LB coach was originally looking at keeping Peek at OLB? Just my opinion

Robert Mathis is 238 or something like that. Jason Taylor and John Abraham play at or around 255 - like Peek will.

Peek's greatest asset is rushing the passer, so I think he'll thrive as a DE.

That will help out his speed very much. If he loses weight by running instead of just dieting as many do, he can really build and define his leg muscles. It happened to me. Right now, I'm 5"9 240 and I ran a couple of steps faster than my friend, who is a sprinter on the track team because I lost weight by running instead of dieting.

18% body fat is quite a lot. That is more than a lot of Linemen. 18% body fat is pushing tubby.

If you watch some of the Texans clips on the main page about the up-coming season, some of the players mention that Peek will do well a the RDE spot...almost of an indication that it's his to lose.

Just talking about his weight, I beleive i read an article about Peek in the beginning of last season about how he tries to gain a little bit of weight at the beginning of each season so he doesn't get pushed around at his LB spot, but he ends up losing it by the middle to end of the season. So he starts off at a good LB weight, but works it off. I want to say he did it last season so he could make the transition from specialist LB to full time LB.

I think it is. 15% body fat = a better than average gut, with little definition in the arms, and some small man-boobs. You can still be athletic, but your going to be hindered even at that.

18% is a lot, especially since his game is the speed rush.

I know somebody specifically who had exactly 18% body fat a few years ago. He was not in that bad of shape at all. He was barrell chested, with no man-boobs (at least not to speak of), and tough (although not built or certainly not cut). His arms were naturally beefy with no noticeable fat, although not defined. Granted, this guy was one of those barrell chested, somewhat short guys who are naturally stronger than most people that are a foot taller than them and he was I think 22 at the time. Maybe he was kind of an anomaly. Mine was 11% and I was built (some) and very, very cut. (Wish I still was. Need to fix that problem.)

I just think it's going to be funny if both Peek and Babin flourish playing the DE instead of LB. Peek has that motor where he just won't quit, but It still seems like Babin is going to be the better fit at DE.

18% body fat is within the normal recommended range. You are not fat at all in this range. Normal for men 25-35 is 15-24%. Most lineman are in the 30-40% range.
