Stanford WR Ty Montgomery said he performed better at his pro day than at the combine because he was lighter and was also able to get more rest.

"I was lighter and felt more flexible," said Montgomery. "I've shed 10 pounds and got my stride back. ... Most importantly, I was able to sleep. At the combine, I got no sleep. I didn't go to bed until 1:30 a.m. and woke up at 6 a.m. to go perform. I didn't do horribly, but I did a lot better out here." Montgomery measured in at 5-foot-11 3/4 and 211 pounds, more than two inches shorter and nine pounds lighter than his listed dimensions. CBS reported that he ran 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash at Stanford's scouting event, while NFL.com's Gil Brandt reported seperate times of 4.51 and 4.5. Regardless, Montgomery spoke to Texans director of college scouting Jon Carr after his drills and was put through additional pass-catching work, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Stanford LB A.J. Tarpley spoke with the Washington Redskins after his pro day workout.

Tarpley was the "surprise of the day" at Stanford's event, according to the analyst, posting a 40 time of around 4.70 seconds. He added a short shuttle of about 4.0 seconds, 24 reps on the bench and 34 inches in the vertical jump. "I'm told Tarpley himself was pleased with his entire day as he looked good in position drills," Pauline wrote.

Stanford WR Ty Montgomery "ran solid routes and caught the ball better than expected" at his pro day workout, noted TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"At the end of the pro day, he was taken aside by Houston Texans director of college scouting Jon Carr and put through additional pass-catching work," Pauline added. Montgomery clocked 4.5 and 4.51 forties on Friday after putting up a 4.55 time at the combine. The Standford wideout has been dubbed a "slightly better version of Josh Cribbs" by CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Stanford OLB James Vaughters put up great testing numbers at the school's pro day, but "was not nearly as impressive in position drills, looking stiff and unsure of himself," reported TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Vaughters hoisted up a spectacular 35 reps on the bench, touched 32.5 inches in the vertical jump and clocked in the mid-4.8-second range in the 40. That was all good and well, but Vaughters struggled when he took the field. We're a bit surprised by the dichotomy, as Vaughters doesn't always look athletic during games, accruing production more from hustle and sheer strength. Vaughters was not invited to the NFL combine.

An NFL source told TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline that Stanford DL Henry Anderson "does not look the prettiest doing it, but gets the job done."

Agreed. The 6-foot-5, 295-pounder had a big bounceback season in 2014, but some evaluators have been slow to come around to him due to his injury-plagued 2013 season and his non-sexy brand of football. Josh Norris ranks Anderson as the class' No. 11 overall player, comparing him to Chris Canty. "He might play with high pad level, but Anderson has tremendous strength through his hands and couples it with great length to press and push his opponent backwards," Norris wrote. "Will work best as a 3-tech, but might give some teams looks as a 5-tech. That versatility will be nice for teams who use multiple fronts. He displayed a variety of moves in 1 on 1s."
Mar 22 - 3:45 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that Stanford DT David Parry was the "big winner" at the school's pro day and "looked exceptional in all the drills."

Pauline reported that Parry met with Nick Caserio, the director of player personnel for the New England Patriots, for "a few hours" on Wednesday. "I was also told Parry was one of the Raiders' targets," Pauline wrote. "Given the need for defensive tackles in the league and the overall lack of depth at the position in this year's draft, the feeling leaving Stanford's pro day was Parry could sneak into the third round." The 6-foot-2, 305-pounder isn't likely to get out of Round 4 if he doesn't.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Stanford T Andrus Peat as the No. 2 offensive lineman in the class.

Peat finds himself looking up at only Iowa OL Brandon Scherff. "Peat has the physical tools to be an upper-echelon run blocker with pass-protection ability, but he needs to improve his technique in order to protect with consistency," Zierlein wrote. "Peat has been well-coached and is one of the most game-ready offensive linemen in this year's draft." Peat compares to Charles Spencer, according to the analyst. A second-team All-American in 2014, Peat is expected to go in the middle of Round 1. Peat has one major thing going for him: He's arguably the only prospect in the class that scouts believe with 90-percent-plus certainty will be an NFL starter at left tackle.

Stanford WR Ty Montgomery ran "good routes and caught the ball well" during his pro day," according to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

"Montgomery stood on his other combine numbers. Montgomery runs good routes and caught the ball well during the pro day. He also did a good job working out as a kick and punt returner," Brandt wrote. The Standford wideout improved on his 4.55 forty time from the combine, and ran a 4.5 and 4.51 forty on Friday. Montgomery will have to show teams that he can be a reliable pass catcher, in order to get meaningful playing time at the next level. However, he should be able to compete on special teams right away, as a returner. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler calls the Stanford prospect, a "slightly better version of Josh Cribbs."

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt believes teams are looking for "hard-nosed tackling" safeties just like Stanford senior S Jordan Richards.

"Richards is the kind of prospect who the workouts don't do him justice because he's a hard-nosed tackling safety. Teams are looking for players just like that at safety," Brandt wrote. The 5-foot-10, 213-pound Richards ran the 40 in 4.59 seconds on his two attempts. The Cardinal strong safety had a 34 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot broad jump. Richards posted a short shuttle time of 4.32 seconds. The Stanford team captain recorded 69 tackles with three interceptions and three passes break ups in 2014.

Stanford T Andrus Peat "worked out better at left tackle than at right tackle" at Stanford's pro day, according to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

"Peat -- who has 33 3/4-inch arms -- had a good pro day workout. He actually worked out better at left tackle than at right tackle, which is good for him. Peat is the son of Todd Peat, who played six seasons as a guard in the NFL," Brandt wrote. The Stanford prospect posted a 10 1/2-foot broad jump, and stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. At the combine, Peat ran a solid 40 time(5.18), with a 4.62 short shuttle.

Stanford senior DT David Parry "might offer the best value" amongst the nose tackle options in this class, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Several nose tackle options in this class, but Stanford NT David Parry might offer the best value. Rock solid player," Brugler tweeted. The 6-foot-2, 305-pounder impressed evaluators at the East-West Shrine game, with good technique and sound mechanics. While Parry's measurables wont stand out, his work on tape will do the talking for him. Brugler believes that the Standford prospect would be "good value" in fourth or fifth round.

Stanford WR Ty Montgomery has visits scheduled with the Panthers and Texans, according to Rand Getlin.

Montgomery cannot be relied on as a receiver early in his career in terms of lining up and beating his man one on one. Right now, the Cardinal is a manufactured touch player who can create with the ball in his hands. Look for a team to find a role for Montgomery, most likely as a returner. He is a day three selection.

Stanford CB Alex Carter is a "tall, good-sized corner," an NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"Solid speed, not special," the scout said. "Still developing his game. Fundamentally raw. I don't know if he can step right in and start early in his career. He's got man-to-man skill." The 6-foot, 202-pounder started from Day 1 on campus and earned All-Pac 12 Honorable Mention honors in three consecutive seasons. In 2014, he posted 10 passes defended, 41 tackles, one forced fumble and one interception.

Stanford T Andrus Peat reminds Sports Illustrated's Doug Farrar of D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Joe Thomas.

"There are times when Peat absolutely kills it on his tape—at 6'7'' and 313 pounds, he has the range and athleticism to dominate enemy defenders at the highest level," Farrar wrote. "Once he gets his feet set and his arms up in pass protection, it's all over. But I do question Peat's ability to run-block consistently, and while I would never question his 'finisher's mentality' as some have done, there are times when I would like to see a little more nastiness from him. And it may be easier to get better and more technique than it is to develop that hard-ass edge. I could be wrong about Peat, and I do love his tape overall, but I'd hesitate on picking him unless I was sure that he was going to bring that attitude to my team." Interestingly, Peat has become perhaps the draft's most divisive tackle. Curious, that, as he's one of the only elite OT prospects who evaluators are certain can remain at left tackle.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks ranked Stanford T Andrus Peat as the No. 1 OT in his most recent dispatch of position rankings.

Peat jumped up from No. 4 in Brooks' last installment. Why did Peat leap Brandon Scherff, Cedric Ogbuehi and La'el Collins? "Peat is certainly making a compelling case to evaluators that he has the tools to play the marquee position as a pro," Brooks wrote. "He is as technically sound as any player at the position, yet he also possesses the size, strength and balance to handle power rushers off the edge." At the combine, the 6-foot-7, 313-pounder had a good 40 time (5.18), broad jump (8-9) and short shuttle (4.62).
