There’s some history between Stanford offensive tackle Andrus Peat and Redskins linebacker Trent Murphy. There’s also some friendly competition.

Peat, who is participating in the NFL Scouting Combine today, used to be teammates with Murphy and often squared off with him when the two played for the Cardinal.

“My own teammate, Trent Murphy, was real tough to deal with in practice,” Peat told CSN Washington.

“He’s the toughest football player that I’ve played against,” said Peat. “Just his tenacity and his work ethic really helped him out of the field. He’s just tough to go against in one on ones anytime in practice.”

Peat’s father, Todd, was a former offensive lineman for the Cardinals and Raiders, and didn’t allow Andrus to start playing football until high school so he wouldn’t be too burned out by the time he got to college.

“His darkest day was his freshman year when he couldn’t block Trent Murphy,” Peat Sr. told Cardinals.com. “He called me in tears. I [recently] read something where Murphy was asked about the toughest guy [he] ever went against. Andrus Peat. That meant a lot.”

If the Redskins don’t draft the 6-foot-7, 313 pound lineman, they may just get to face off against each other down the road. Just like in college.
