An anonymous scout told Bob McGinn Football that Stanford TE Dalton Schultz "just does his job."

"He’s not flashy but he just does his job basically," said the scout. "He’s not overpowering or anything. Above average to average in everything. He’s not in the class of those other big-time Stanford tight ends. If he’s a starter I’d be surprised." Schultz (6'5/244) started the year near the top of many analysts' tight end boards, but his lack of production has dropped that stock substantially. That being said, he could be a quality inline -- or Y -- tight end, and he could be a better pro than college player.

An anonymous scout told Bob McGinn Football if Stanford S Justin Reid "can put it together this guy could be really good"

The scout continued by saying, "he’d be a cover safety who could play man. He’s not there yet. Little arrogance about him. Will he fit?" A second scout expressed other concerns saying, "he ran 4.4 flat but he doesn’t play that way. Plays the run well but I never saw that kind of burst out of the kid." Reid has met with a lot of teams but most notably the Panthers who reportedly have at least one Stanford tie. He will likely be selected in the back-half of the first round.

An NFC Scouting College Supervisor told NFL Media's Lance Zierlein that there's "something missing" in Stanford edge-rusher Peter Kalambayi.

"Something is just missing," the scout told Zierlein. "You see flashes and then he just disappears. [Stanford coach David] Shaw's guys really get them coached up so it's hard to believe they couldn't get more out of an athlete like that." Zierlein goes so far as to call the 6-foot-3, 252-pound Kalambayi "a better athlete than football player." He had a strong NFL Scouting Combine in terms of testing, so someone likely takes a chance on him on Day 3. The volatility here is palpable.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Stanford DT Harrison Phillips to former NFL DT Broderick Bunkley.

Phillips was one of the most productive defensive tackles in the NCAA last year, and his strong testing at the combine and at his pro day has certainly helped his stock. Zierlein lists his strengths as his ability to set the edge and ability to drive through blocks, while listing his build (6'4/307) and secondary rush as potential weaknesses. He likely goes on Day 2, but a team who values his ability to find the football from the interior position could draft him in the first 32 selections.

Stanford S Justin Reid is visiting the Panthers on Monday.

Reid has a very good chance of being the Panthers selection at No. 24. The team has a need at the position and often side with the makeup of a player like Reid. Plus, the Panthers staff has at least one Stanford tie. Reid has been a busy body in terms of visits. He is almost certain to be a round one pick.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Stanford S Justin Reid to NFL free agent S Michael Griffin.

"There aren't too many issues in his game," an NFC GM told Zierlein. "If he tests well he could sneak into the back half of the first is my guess. He's better in coverage than his brother." Zierlein lists his weaknesses as getting behind on crossing routes too often and that he'll get beat by play-action coming in too aggressively, but he compensates with excellent versatility and he has "NFL caliber recognition skills." He likely goes on Day 2, and there's a good chance someone looking for a plug-and-play safety could draft him in the second round.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Stanford TE Dalton Schultz to Patriots TE Dwayne Allen.

Schultz (6'5/244) is one of those rare players who might project better as an NFL player than a collegiate one. The reason being that Schultz's skillset as a Y tight end might play better at the higher level than it did with Stanford. "Schultz is a capable and reliable target underneath, but his living will depend on how he impacts the running game," Zierlein writes. "Schultz's limited catch production could drop him a round, but he should be a solid, early starter."

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Stanford TE Dalton Schultz had dinner with the Houston Texans last week.

Schultz did so after his pro day workout, in which he completed 20 reps on the bench (two better than he did at the combine). Schulz "caught the ball well in drills," per Pauline. Schultz (6'5/244) is an intriguing -- and perhaps overlooked -- mid-round target in the NFL Draft.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Stanford DT Harrison Phillips "looked terrific" in drills during his pro day workout.

Per Pauline, Scott Fitterer of the Seattle Seahawks, Anthony Patch of the Philadelphia Eagles and John Lynch of the San Francisco 49ers were a few of the front office folks in attendance. The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Phillips has performed better athletically than we expected during his pre-draft process. We see him as a Day 2 prospect.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Stanford CB Quenton Meeks interviewed with the Los Angeles Rams and Carolina Panthers after his pro day workout last week.

Per Pauline, Meeks "looked good" during the workout while going through ball drills staged by the Los Angeles Chargers. The 6-foot-1, 209-pounder posted a 4.49 40 in "cold, windy conditions" after sitting out the drill in Indianapolis. At the NFL Combine, he logged a 39-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot-8 broad jump and a 6.72 three-cone. Draft Analyst grades Meeks as a third-round pick.

Stanford S Justin Reid added a meeting with the Rams to his schedule.

Reid's pro day is this week, so the meeting will follow that. Reid has a busy schedule, including visits with six teams in April. His name could be mentioned in the late first round conversation more often.
Mar 22 - 8:21 AM

Stanford S Justin Reid added another visit to his schedule, this one to the Vikings.

Reid now has six visits lined up in April, with many of teams drafting at the end of the first round. Expect that to become a more frequent projection for Reid moving forward.
Mar 20 - 8:07 AM

Stanford S Justin Reid has visits scheduled with Eagles, Lions, Steelers, Panthers and Seahawks, according to Rotoworld's Josh Norris.

Reid is one of the most athletic safety prospects in this class, testing in the 95th percentile at the NFL Combine. He is the younger brother of Eric Reid and has been training with him during the draft process. Eric ended up being a first-round selection, and many feel Justin is on the same path. Justin Reid will have his wisdom teeth removed in the next few weeks.

Stanford QB commit Tanner McKee announced he'll be making a two-year mission trip to Brazil.

This has been in the workings for a while now, but it's official now. McKee (6'6/220) is Mormon, and he'll be taking his two-year mission in Curitiba, Brazil starting on July 10. He'll enroll as a member of the Cardinal in 2019 after completing the LDS mission. McKee ranks 46th overall in 247 Sports composite rankings of the 2018 class.

An NFC regional scout said that Stanford T David Bright "checks all of the intangible boxes you look for."

"[Bright]'s smart, he's a hard worker who never misses practice, he plays hurt and he was a captain," the scout said. He views the 6-foot-5, 307-pounder as a future NFL backup, adding "you want players like him in your room." Part of Bright's appeal as a potential late Day 3 selection comes in the fact that he's incredibly position-versatile, with the ability to play four of five spots on the line.
