Stanford senior WR Ty Montgomery exited Saturday's game against Cal with a right shoulder injury.

Prior to leaving, Montgomery had one catch for 14 yards. Physicality with the ball in his hands is one of Montgomery's trademarks, and that will be difficult to do with a bum shoulder. Montgomery is at his best after the catch, as a ball carrier or on returns, but those might have to be manufactured touches early on once reaching the NFL.

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery has accepted an invite to the Senior Bowl.

Montgomery is a fast straight-line runner who has issues with consistency in the receiving game. On the season, he has 60 receptions for 590 yards and three touchdowns. Montgomery is an intriguing prospect because of his skills in the return game, but while he's viewed as a potential first-round prospect in some circles, we do not think his ability as a wideout warrants such a high selection.

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery had four catches for 44 yards in Saturday's 20-17 loss to Utah.

Montgomery has caught 60 passes for 590 yards and three touchdowns this season. His best attribute is his speed, which he's used to score two return touchdowns this season. In the receiving game, the wideout's not as consistent. Montgomery does not have a 100-yard game through the air in 2014. Former NFL GM Phil Savage said in October that he thought Montgomery was a first-round pick. He also compared the receiver to Ted Ginn Jr. Would you draft Tedd Ginn Jr. in the first round? Neither would we.

ESPN's Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl noted that Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery "is a threat to make a momentum-shifting play after the catch, on a handoff and in the return game."

Beyond the obvious speed advantage Montgomery holds over most defenders, the analysts also pointed out that enough wiggle to make the first defender miss." They went on to tout that it wasn't just his natural ability which made him dangerous, as "[he] shows above-average patience and vision, making the most of his downfield blocks." Former NFL GM Phil Savage compared Montgomery to Ted Ginn Jr., a comparison which holds its own set of upsides and downsides.

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah said that Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery is "tough to bring down."

Jeremiah said that in addition to being a tough man to tackle, Montgomery looked "strong and quick." Montgomery had seven catches in the contest, though they went for only 35 yards. He also rushed for 26 yards. This season, Montgomery's caught 56 passes for 549 yards and three touchdowns. He's averaging 9.8 yards per catch. While some, like former NFL GM Phil Savage, see Montgomery as a first round selection, Rotoworld's Josh Norris isn't quite as high on the junior. Montgomery has trouble keeping his speed when he's not running in a straight line.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 21-of-29 passing for 237 yards and an interception in Saturday's loss to Oregon.

In an effort to jumpstart the sluggish offense, the Cardinal are in the process of rethinking the way they use Hogan, deploying him now more on designed runs, zone reads, and quarterback keepers. Regardless of how it turns out, 2014 will be looked back upon as a lost season for Hogan. This was a prospect ranked No. 10 overall coming into the season by CBS Sports' Rob Rang, who compared him, at the time, to Philip Rivers. Hogan has one more season to rehabilitate his stock.

Stanford redshirt junior WR Devon Cajuste (undisclosed injury) had 50 receiving yards on a pair of receptions Saturday against Oregon State.

Leading up to the game, Cajuste was listed as "questionable to probable." Since Stanford doesn't disclose injury information, we aren't sure what ailment he's been suffering from. Regardless, it appears as though Cajuste won't need to miss any additional field time.

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery caught six passes for 73 yards in Saturday's triumph versus Oregon State.

Montgomery hasn't cracked even 90 yards receiving in a game this year, but we wonder how much that has to do with Kevin Hogan's struggles. Regardless, we've never been as high on either Hogan or Montgomery as others. Former NFL GM Phil Savage said earlier this month that he believes Montgomery will be selected in the first round, a statement we don't buy. Montgomery's hands are simply too inconsistent to make that type of commitment.
Oct 25 - 10:20 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 18-of-28 passing for 277 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in Saturday's victory over Oregon State.

Stanford was uncharacteristically aggressive through the air, leading to almost 10 yards per attempt for Hogan but also a pair of interceptions. The latter number tied Hogan's season high, but it didn't much matter across from an Oregon State outfit that couldn't get out of its own way. Hogan seemed like a lock to enter the draft in the offseason, but a down year has analysts expecting him to return to school to exhaust his eligibility next fall.

Stanford junior CB Alex Carter is expected to bolt for the NFL after this season, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Carter, whose father Tom was a first round pick of the Washington Redskins in 1993, is in the midst of a terrific season," Pauline wrote. Pauline reported last month that scouts had told him Carter would declare for the draft and become a top-100 pick. The 6-foot, 202-pound junior, who plays as physical as his sturdy frame would suggest, was named to the preseason Nagurski Award and Bednarik Award watch lists.
Oct 24 - 8:52 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that "there’s no definitive word" about whether or not Stanford junior T Andrus Peat will declare for the draft at present time.

Everybody and their mother is assuming Peat is a goner after this season, but we'll have to wait until over the winter to get word from the horse's mouth. "I’ve been told all along Peat is concentrating on the season at hand and will move his focus towards the draft after the campaign," Pauline wrote. Peat is likely to go in the top half of the first round.

Stanford redshirt junior WR Devon Cajuste is "questionable to probable" to play against Oregon State.

Stanford does not disclose injury information, so we do not even know what is ailing Cajuste. Thus far in 2014, Cajuste has recorded 18 receptions for 243 yards and three touchdowns.

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery caught six passes for 82 yards in Saturday's loss to Arizona State.

He also returned three kicks for 57 yards. Montgomery is a dynamo with the ball in his hands. The issue is getting it there. Stanford QB Kevin Hogan has struggled mightily in 2014, costing Montgomery catches, but the receiver himself gives away receptions due to his sometimes-slippery mitts. Former NFL GM Phil Savage said earlier this month that he believes Montgomery will be selected in the first round, but we disagree with the assertion.
Oct 20 - 3:40 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 19-of-39 passing for 212 yards in Saturday's loss to Arizona State.

We have to wonder if Hogan is playing at less than 100-percent health. His completion percentage is slightly up this season (62.4 percent) from last (61.0), but the good news essentially ends there. He's averaging a yard-and-a-half less per attempt (7.32 this season compared to 8.92 last year) and his QB rating (137.3/151.5) and adjusted QBR (46.9/80.5) are both far lower than in 2013. He's already been sacked 14 times, the same amount as last season, despite sitting behind a seriously talented offensive line. CBS Sports' Rob Rang ranked Hogan as the No. 10 overall prospect on his first big board back in May. Today, he might not even rank No. 110.
Oct 20 - 3:22 PM

Stanford redshirt junior WR Devon Cajuste will miss Saturday's game against Arizona State with an undisclosed injury.

As per their policy, Stanford does not disclose injury details so we do not even know what is ailing Cajuste. Thus far, Cajust has recorded 18 receptions for 243 yards and three touchdowns in five games.
