Notes on Stanford's Representation at the NFL Scouting Combine

Notes from Jordan Hamm on Stanford players on Day 2 of the NFL Scouting Combine

The NFL Combine continued Thursday as more players had a chance to show who they really are at the podium. Two Stanford players made some news thanks to some impressive measurements and research done by a few of the players.


Going to Stanford means learning to study up. That’s exactly what Austin Hooper did for the Steelers’ tight end situation. Hooper was aware of the recent personnel moves made in Pittsburgh. Many see the Steelers as a potential fit for Hooper thanks to the retirement of Heath Miller.

 Hooper also received some guidance from former Cardinal star and current Eagle tight end Zach Ertz.. Hooper is looking to continue the line of strong tight end pedigree for the Cardinal at the NFL.

Wide receiver Devon Cajuste was a matchup nightmare for the Cardinal’s opponents the past few years. He is listed at 6-foot-4 and 227 pounds. Cajuste has beefed up a little since the season, making him the heaviest wide receiver in this year’s draft.

You all know what big hands mean, right? A bigger catching radius! Not only was Cajuste the heaviest receiver, but also has the biggest hands in the draft as well.

Workouts will begin Friday in Indianapolis. Stay tuned to The Bootleg for more coverage on this year’s draftees.
