Stanford received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 CB Salim Turner-Muhammad.

Turner-Muhammad was also reportedly strongly considering Notre Dame, and he had offers from several other big-name schools like Georgia, Wisconsin and Virginia Tech. He ranks 16th on 247 Sports list of the top corners in the class, and fifth among prospects out of the state of Virginia. We've seen several quality defensive backs produced by the Cardinal who played in the NFL. Turner-Muhammad could be next.

Stanford junior QB Jack Richardson was awarded a scholarship this spring after initially walking on with the program.

A scholarship and a nice little note on ESPN, with Worldwide Leader analyst Edward Aschoff singling him out as the team's breakout for the spring. Richardson (6'5/202) doesn't figure to see the field much this year so long as starter K.J. Costello can come back healthy from a hip injury which kept him on the sideline this spring. Backup QB Davis Mills (knee) also missed the spring, hence why Richardson has received a closer look.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. ranks Stanford senior RB Bryce Love as his top tailback in his way-too-early 2019 draft board.

Love is ranked 10th, and he's one of two running backs on Kiper's list; joining Oklahoma's Rodney Anderson. Love put up monster numbers -- even when he wasn't healthy -- but some don't seem terribly sold on the 5-foot-10, 184-pound tailback as a first-round pick. Kiper doesn't seem to be one of those people. As Kiper summarizes: " year after Christian McCaffrey averaged 6.3 yards per carry and caught 37 passes on his way to the top 10 of the draft, all Love did was average 8.1 yards per carry last season. What he will want to do more is catch passes, because he's slippery in space."

Stanford sophomore WR Connor Wedington caught five passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in the team's April spring game.

"[Wedington] knew what he was doing, he played fast, and the ball found him," said OC Tavita Pritchard. The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder's touchdown grab came on a nice little 15-yard wheel route. While the former four-star athlete is a candidate for a breakout campaign after he caught 31 passes for 243 yards a year ago, Stanford is not without depth at the position -- upperclassmen JJ Arcega-Whiteside and Trenton Irwin are both back in the fold this year -- and it might be another year before Wedington is truly able to blossom as a potential No. 1 target. Of the three names we're batting around, here, we expect Arcega-Whiteside to be the most active and productive wideout for the Cardinal this coming season.

Stanford signed three-star 2018 TE Tae Le in December.

Le (6'4/237) is the type of tight end we've seen come in and succeed at Stanford for what seems like forever, with many analysts citing his soft hands and ability to make plays over the middle of the field. He also had offers from Iowa State, Boise State and Colorado State, and he was also considering Ivy League offers. This is an under-the-radar player to keep an eye on going forward, even if he doesn't make a big impact in 2018.

ESPN's Todd McShay projects Stanford senior RB Bryce Love to go to the Raiders with the 18th pick in his way-too-early 2019 mock draft.

Oh this would be fun. Love is one of two running backs that McShay projects to go in the first round in 2018, with Oklahoma's Rodney Anderson (30th to the Steelers) being the other. The 2017 Heisman Trophy finalist would be the replacement for heir apparent to Marshawn Lynch, who will be a free agent after this year. As McShay notes: "The diminutive (5-10, 186) running back played through an ankle injury and finished second in the Heisman voting, compiling 2,118 rushing yards on the season (second in the nation)."

Jaguars signed Stanford DB Quenton Meeks.

Meeks (6’1/209) started all three years in the Cardinal secondary before turning pro, tallying seven career interceptions with two pick sixes and earning second-team All-Pac 12 as a 2017 junior. Meeks tested well in the pre-draft phase with a 4.54 forty, 39-inch vertical, and twitchy 6.72 three-cone time. Meeks showed enough vulnerability in the vertical passing game in college for a potential move to safety, but he could also play Cover-3 press corner.

NFL Media's Elliot Harrison labeled Houston Texans S Justin Reid as the best pick of Day 2.

Harrison believes Reid could have snuck into the end of the first round, but was somehow drafted 68th overall and in the 3rd round by the Houston Texans. He loves the fit Reid in Houston's defense and said "remember that J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus are also back from injury, with Honey Badger (Tyrann Mathieu) added on the back end as a free agent. Insert Reid, who could start right away." Reid could be a solid role player on the Texans immediately.

Texans selected Stanford LB Peter Kalambayi with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Kalambayi posted an athletic profile in the 77th percentile and offers pass rushing depth for the Texans. His outlook appears to be a rotational player on the outside and a special teamer. His family is from the Congo and Trinidad and Tobago.

Cowboys selected Stanford TE Dalton Schultz with the No. 137 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Schultz (6’5/244) turned pro as a redshirt junior after logging a career 55/555/5 receiving line, averaging a pedestrian 10.9 yards per catch. Schultz tested as a capable athlete in Indy with 4.75 speed and a rock-solid 7.00 three-cone time, also scoring an impressive 32 on the Wonderlic exam. Schultz butters his bread as a blocker on the line, but he may offer more receiving upside than his college stats suggest.

Bills selected Stanford DT Harrison Phillips with the No. 96 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Phillips (6’3/307) started each of his final two years for the Cardinal, earning first-team All-Pac 12 and third-team All-American honors in 2017, leading Stanford in tackles (103) – rare for an interior defensive lineman – and logging 46 run stops (PFF), most among draft-eligible DTs. Although Phillips lacks up-field burst and explosive quickness, he checks boxes as a disciplined, "good football player" with a high floor and underrated all-around athleticism, logging 62nd-percentile SPARQ results and a whopping 42 bench-press reps in Indy. Phillips projects as a pro-ready run plugger whose pass-rush game is still developing.

Texans selected Stanford S Justin Reid with the No. 68 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

It's the Texans' first selection of the 2018 draft. Reid (6’1/207) turned pro as a true junior after earning first-team All-Pac 12 and second-team All-American in 2017 with 6.5 tackles for loss and five interceptions. Reid further caught attention with a blistering Combine, running 4.4-flat with an explosive 10-foot-8 broad jump and twitchy 6.65 three-cone time. The brother of ex-49ers SS Eric Reid, Justin has experience covering slot receivers and tight ends, and playing in centerfield and the box. Reid’s versatility, athleticism, and smarts (31 Wonderlic) raise his chances of becoming an instant contributor.

An anonymous scout told Bob McGinn Football he isn't sure that Sanford DT Harrison Phillips "has the acceleration or has the fluidness to ever be a great pass rusher."

The scout continued, "He gets a hold of the guy blocking him and he then recognizes pass and he throws the guy, but by that time the ball’s off. His best position might be 5-technique." Another scout wrote off some of his counting stats and mentioned, "What makes him so productive is he has a first-round motor, but he struggles against double teams and there’s a lot of tackle production down the field." Phillips led the Cardinals in tackles in 2017 and scored a 35 on the Wonderlic test, the highest at his position. Phillips will likely be selected sometime in the second round.

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.
Apr 25 - 3:47 PM

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.
