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.

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.

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.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline notes that scouts think Stanford senior DL Henry Anderson "will be a solid middle round pick who’ll go onto to have a long career in the NFL."

"Scouts feel, and justifiably so, Anderson will be a solid middle round pick who’ll go onto to have a long career in the NFL as either a two-gap end or defensive tackle," Pauline wrote. The 6-foot-5, 295-pounder entered the season with late round grades, but Anderson "has rebounded well from an injury plagued 2013 campaign, playing smart, tough football this season," according to Pauline.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 23-of-35 passing for 284 yards and three touchdowns in Friday's 34-17 victory over Washington State.

Hogan made the start despite suffering an undisclosed leg injury in the second half against Notre Dame last week. After being hampered by a propensity to lock onto his first read and throwing inaccurately versus the Cougars, Hogan bounced back in a big way against a Wazzu defense that rarely mounts much resistance. He's gone 112-for-171 for 1,325 yards and a 11/4 TD/INT ratio this season.

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery caught seven passes for 72 yards in the school's 34-17 win over Washington State.

Montgomery did hall one 18 yard catch in just before taking a huge shot over the middle. However, he dropped one shortly after (it would have been called back due to a penalty). Ty's biggest play was a 46 yard punt return, which is not a shock. Montgomery is easily at his best with the ball in his hands. We do not view him as a first-round pick.

Stanford redshirt sophomore RB Barry J. Sanders rushed for 68 yards in the school's 34-17 win over Washington State.

Sanders had rushes of 21 and 29 yards in the first quarter, but neither was overly impressive. He picked up yards blocked for him but did not showcase the jump cut that made his father famous, something he has flashed in the past. Still, a yards per carry rate of 9.7 is very good.

Stanford is converting junior DE Luke Kaumatule to an exclusive pass-rushing role.

He'll remain at defensive end in the nickel, and shift to outside linebacker in most other schemes, according to ESPN's David Lombardi. The gifted 6-foot-7, 267-pound prospect has had a difficult time finding a position over the past few years. Last October, he was moved to defense from tight end. Kaumatule also played basketball in high school.
Oct 8 - 5:20 PM

Stanford junior T Andrus Peat ran a 5.12 second forty, had a 30-inch vertical and an 8-7 broad jump at Stanford's junior day in the spring.

Schools conduct mini-combines that allow upcoming draft eligible prospects to work out and accrue non-official combine-style numbers. The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Peat's numbers are decent but not eye-catching, perhaps one reason that many grade superior athletes Cedric Ogbuehi and Brandon Scherff above him.
Oct 8 - 4:34 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan is expected to start Friday against Washington State despite suffering from an undisclosed leg injury.

Head coach David Shaw said Hogan sustained the injury in the second half against Notre Dame. Perhaps it contributed to Hogan's poor performance, however, we aren't sure a leg injury forces a quarterback to lock onto his first read or display accuracy issues. Backup Evan Crower could see time if Hogan does miss game action.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan was given a -0.9 game score by Pro Football Focus for his work versus Notre Dame on Saturday.

"Hogan looked excellent on the Stanford touchdown drive that put them ahead in the fourth quarter, but for much of the game his deep accuracy was lacking, with plenty of opportunities missed," wrote Gordon McGuinness. "He struggled when put under pressure too, going 1-for-8 with a grade of -2.9 on plays when Notre Dame were able to pressure him." Hogan finished 18-of-36 for 158 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the 17-14 loss. He's gone 89-for-136 for 1,041 yards and an 8/4 TD/INT ratio this season.
Oct 6 - 10:59 PM

Stanford junior T Andrus Peat was "the star of the show" in Saturday's loss to Notre Dame, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Cardinal struggled to move the ball, but that can be blamed on Kevin Hogan, Ty Montgomery and the skill position players, as opposed to the offense line, which showed quite well in inclement conditions. "Peat was the star of the show, with some impressive work as a run blocker to go along with a perfect day in pass protection," wrote Gordon McGuinness. The Cardinal offensive line finished with a combined Pass Blocking Efficiency Rating of 93.9 against the Irish.
Oct 6 - 7:30 PM

CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan "sailed passes over the head of several open receivers" in Saturday's loss to Notre Dame.

Hogan went 18-of-36 for 158 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the 17-14 setback. This dud -- in poor weather on the road against an elite opponent -- can be forgiven, but we're troubled by Hogan's consistent struggles this year. He's 89-for-136 for 1,041 yards and an 8/4 TD/INT ratio, playing the worst football that we've seen since Hogan stepped foot on campus.

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery "dropped at least three passes while playing wide receiver and wasn't able to beat the Irish to the perimeter when running out of the backfield" on Saturday against Notre Dame, wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Montgomery had four catches for 12 yards and 14 yards on five rushing attempts. "Footballs landing on the grass after bouncing off his chest plate were the most obvious mistakes for Montgomery," Rang wrote. "Scouts will notice other errors, however, including shoddy route-running that contributed to an interception on the first snap of the fourth quarter." Stanford QB Kevin Hogan seemed to lose faith in Montgomery as the game went on. Former NFL GM Phil Savage believes Montgomery will be selected in the first round, but we'll need to see a lot of improvement before we buy that.

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery was held to four catches for 12 yards in Saturday's loss to Notre Dame.

He also rushed five times for 14 yards. Montgomery came into this game averaging 69 yards a game receiving. It was an ugly afternoon for the Cardinal prospect. Amidst heavy winds and rain, Montgomery dropped at least three passes. He typically found himself in man coverage but couldn't run himself into open space. The stock of most every Stanford offensive player has dropped from the preseason.
