Stanford senior OLB James Vaughters "limits the mental mistakes, plays with functional power and has the hustle that every scout and coach will notice,"according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"He isn't an elite athlete, clearly lacking ideal fluidity and suddenness, but Vaughters limits the mental mistakes, plays with functional power and has the hustle that every scout and coach will notice," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-2, 254-pound Vaughters led Stanford Cardinals with nine tackles, two tackles for loss and a half sack versus the Washington Huskies last week. As a pass rusher, Vaughters will "stand up or put his hand on the ground with good get-off quickness out of his stance, converting his momentum to power at the point of attack,"according to Brugler.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline is hearing from scouts that Stanford junior CB Alex Carter will enter the 2015 NFL Draft and become a top-100 pick.

"Carter’s star continues to shine as the junior has displayed great improvement this season," Pauline wrote. "During Stanford’s critical conference victory over Washington, he shut down Husky receivers and came up big during the closing moments of the game, breaking up several passes to go along with five tackles. Carter possesses excellent size and plays strong, physical football. Numerous west coast sources tell me Carter will enter the draft and he’s expected to slot into the top 100 selections." The 6-foot, 202-pound junior was named to the preseason Nagurski Award and Bednarik Award watch lists.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline "fully expects" Stanford senior OLB James Vaughters "to make an NFL roster next fall in one form or another."

"Vaughters is a talent; whether or not he gets any post-season scouting consideration is another story, but I fully expect him to make an NFL roster next fall in one form or another," Pauline wrote. Pauline notes that his sources like the 6-foot-2, 254-pounder, but "feel he’s out of position in Stanford’s 3-4 alignment and is better suited for a traditional 43 defense." Against Washington, Vaughters had his best outing of the year, with 9 tackles and 2 tackles for a loss.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 17-of-26 passing for 178 yards, a touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 20-13 win against Washington.

He was more effective scrambling around, accumulating 53 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Hogan struggled against the Huskies, but he'd been dynamite before that, completing over 70-percent of his passes in all three games and posting a 7/1 TD/INT ratio. CBS Sports' Rob Rang compared Hogan to Philip Rivers prior to the season.
Sep 28 - 9:41 PM

Stanford redshirt sophomore RB Barry J. Sanders rushed for 11 yards on three carries in the school's 20-13 win over Washington.

The Cardinal only handed the ball off 22 times to their running backs, which is very surprising. In fact, the box score shows quarterback Kevin Hogan had the same number of carries as top rusher Remound Wright.

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery "is a threat to take it the distance whenever he touches the ball in the open field," according to NFL Media Analyst Bucky Brooks.

"From his blazing speed as a vertical route runner to his electric running skills on "catch-and-run" plays, Montgomery is a threat to take it the distance whenever he touches the ball in the open field," Brooks wrote. Montgomery has already scored four touchdowns this year (1 rushing, 2 receiving, and 1 punt return) and looks to be the perfect multi-purpose threat for Stanford. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder has been compared to Ted Ginn Jr.

Stanford redshirt junior CB Wayne Lyons has "separated himself as one of the more impressive members of Stanford's stout defense" since becoming a first-time starter last year, writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"He looks the part with a tall, lanky frame and long arms, displaying the field speed and reflexes to make plays against both the pass and the run," Brugler wrote. "While he's physical downhill, Lyons needs to be more consistent breaking down in space and finishing ballcarriers on the perimeter, but he plays with steadfast confidence and the aggressive nature that doesn't waver from snap-to-snap." Lyons squares off against a Washington pass offense which has struggled mightily to accrue yardage in 2014. The 6-foot-1, 196-pounder runs a 4.56 forty.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that Stanford junior T Andrus Peat "will have his hands full" this week, in his match-up against Washington's RS senior DE/OLB Hau'oli Kikaha.

"Arguably the most physically gifted lineman in all of college football, Peat will have his hands full in this match-up against Washington's RS senior DE/OLB Hau'oli Kikaha," Brugler wrote. The match-up between Peat and Kikaha "could be a battle of future first round picks and a match-up that NFL scouts will be tracking with great interest," according to Brugler.

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.
Sep 14 - 12:25 PM

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.
Sep 14 - 12:02 AM

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.
Sep 6 - 6:54 PM

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.
