Stanford redshirt sophomore RB Barry J. Sanders rusher for 92 yards on nine carries in the school's 35-0 win over Army.

It is a career high in carries and yards for the young Sanders. A large portion of his yards occurred on a single snap, which saw Sanders take a short toss 44 yards after great blocking up front. He lacked long speed to finish the run, however. This could be a start to a larger role for Barry's son.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 20-of-28 passing for 216 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 35-0 win against Army.

The 15th-ranked Cardinal didn't get much resistance in this one, as the Black Knights elected to throw the ball only five times despite the fact that they trailed essentially the entire way. Because of the opponent, it's impossible to evaluate Hogan's performance. Stanford has a bye week on deck. They'll use that to prepare for a road date in Washington.
Sep 14 - 12:17 AM

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery had eight receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown on Saturday versus Army.

He also ran for a four-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter (his 32-yard touchdown reception also occurred in the last frame). Montgomery displays exceptional straight-line speed and returning ability (though today he had just 11 yards on two punt returns). The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder has been compared to Ted Ginn Jr.

Stanford junior WR Ty Mongtomery caught nine passes for 83 yards in Saturday's 13-10 setback versus USC.

Stanford had nine drives inside USC's 30-yard line and somehow managed to score only twice. You can't blame conservatism this time -- Stanford sprayed the ball around the yard, with 30 Kevin Hogan attempts. A lack of offensive execution is going to give David Shaw some late nights next week going over tape. Getting the ball in Montgomery's hands more might help. Rotoworld contributor Cian Fahey compares him to Tedd Ginn Jr. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Montgomery tallied 2,208 all-purpose yards last season, the third most in school history, leading the Cardinal with 61 catches for 958 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Sep 6 - 7:00 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 22-for-30 for 285 yards in Saturday's 13-10 loss to USC.

Hogan avoided mistakes until the very end, when he got drilled from behind by J.R. Tavai and fumbled on the USC 25 with mere seconds left. The Trojans kneeled on the next play and the game was over. Because of the offensive system Hogan plays in -- one that puts a premium on running the ball and avoiding mistakes -- it's impossible to judge him based on stats. He's a good prospect, however, one whom CBS Sports' Rob Rang compared to Philip Rivers prior to the season.

NFL Media Analyst Bucky Brooks believes that Stanford junior T Andrus Peat vs. USC junior DL Leonard Williams "matchup a "must-see" for evaluators looking for dominant players along the line."

"Scouts are expected to be out in droves at the USC-Stanford game to see the battle in the trenches between Peat and Williams. Each prospect carries a high grade heading into the battle, making this matchup a "must-see" for evaluators looking for dominant players along the line," Brooks wrote. Leonard Williams is nursing a high-ankle sprain and will not be 100 percent against the Stanford prospect, but either way, this game tape will weigh heavily in both prospects final evaluation.
Sep 5 - 3:10 PM

Stanford junior WR Ty Mongtomery caught five passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in the school's 45-0 win over UC Davis.

Montgomery added one punt return touchdown of 60 yards. Rotoworld contributor Cian Fahey has compared Montgomery to Tedd Ginn, namely due to Montgomery displaying great straight-line speed and return ability. His pace during breaking routes needs to improve.
Aug 31 - 5:35 PM

Stanford redshirt sophomore RB Barry J. Sanders led the school in rushing against UC Davis with 43 yards on seven carries.

Sanders added two receptions for eight yards. Barry's son was listed as the school's co-backup ball carrier, but he should see more opportunities this year than he did in 2013.
Aug 31 - 3:52 PM

The Sporting News' Eric Galko slots Stanford junior T Andrus Peat No. 1 to the Raiders in a mock draft published Wednesday.

"They could use help across their defense, but getting a top-tier offensive tackle to push Donald Penn inside for the future can give this team a tremendous strength on the offensive line to build around Derek Carr," Galko wrote. Earlier this summer, NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks wrote that Peat is "a future franchise tackle to build around," CBS Sports' Rob Rang called him a "remarkable talent," and TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline labeled him an "elite" prospect. The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder is a consensus top 10 prospect, but many rank Cedric Ogbuehi and Brandon Scherff above him.
Aug 27 - 8:40 PM

ESPN's Todd McShay grades Stanford junior T Andrus Peat as the third-best offensive line prospect.

The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder has a wide frame and stunning athleticism. "Peat has the ideal physical tools you look for in a starting NFL left tackle," McShay wrote. "He displays good length, a strong anchor, powerful upper body and excellent overall agility in pass protection. As a run-blocker, he has the power base to drive defenders off the ball. His football instincts appear to be good on tape, and he flashes a nasty side on occasion. He figures to be the anchor of a very good Stanford offensive line this season." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Peat is "elite," but believes he must work on his nasty streak.
Aug 27 - 8:09 PM

Stanford redshirt sophomore Barry J. Sanders has been named the school's co-No. 2 RB.

Senior Kelsey Young will start despite missing a large portion of camp due to an ankle injury. Sanders Jr. saw most of his action at punt returner, but also took five carries for 34 yards and a touchdown. The few times he had the ball in his hands, however, Sanders Jr. seemed to channel his father's ankle breaking skills.
Aug 27 - 11:30 AM

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery is expected to start the season opener against UC Davis after recovering from shoulder surgery.

Montgomery underwent right shoulder surgery last February and also hurt his knee in the Rose Bowl. The early reports stated Montgomery would miss the first two games of the season, but Montgomery was not satisfied with that projection. Rotoworld contributor Cian Fahey compared Montgomery to Tedd Ginn Jr.
Aug 27 - 10:26 AM's Gil Brandt believes Stanford redshirt junior WR Devon Cajuste could be more special than teammate Ty Montgomery.

Montgomery has earned plenty of buzz thanks to his exceptional straight-line speed, but we think Montgomery does not show that same speed during non-vertical routes and does not consistently win in contested situations. Cajuste is a much bigger frame and has previously been used in the same capacity as receiving tight ends.
Aug 20 - 2:26 PM

One NFL scout praised freshman QB Keller Chryst before any others after watching one of Stanford's scrimmages.

The news was tweeted via former NFL personnel man John Middlekauff. Chryst was ranked as a four-star recruit by all the scouting services and is the son of the 49ers Quarterbacks Coach Geep Chryst. Keller will not be starting in 2014 with redshirt junior Kevin Hogan locking down the top spot. We aren't as sold on Hogan as others, but Chryst's first opportunity might be in 2015 if Hogan declares for this spring's draft.
Aug 19 - 11:36 AM grades Stanford junior T Andrus Peat as the 15th-best player in college football.

"Pro-ready offensive tackle with impressive technical skills and athleticism," said panelist Bucky Brooks. The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder with a wide frame and stunning athleticism showed evaluators he could neutralize elite rushers in the Pac-12 last season. "Has the prototypical left tackle's size but has the athleticism to play tight end," said Bryan Fischer. Added Chase Goodbread: "In Peat, the Cardinal has the most gifted pass protector on the West Coast, and a relentlessly hard worker to boot."
