How did the Stanford representatives fare at the NFL Combine?
There were six Stanford players in this year's combine: quarterback Kevin Hogan, wide receiver Devon Cajuste, tight end Austin Hooper, offensive linemen Joshua Garnett and Kyle Murphy and linebacker Blake Martinez.
Here are some interesting takeaways from the weekend drills:
Devon Cajuste made waves when his hands measured to be the largest of any receiver at the combine. At over 230 pounds, he was also the heaviest. That means he can't move too well, right?
Cajuste posted a 6.49 second three-cone drill, the best of this year's combine and fifth-best all-time. No surprise to Stanford fans, but Cajuste's strong performance in that drill shows he is an impressive mix of size and quickness on the field.
Cajuste also received some words of encouragement from former Cardinal great and current Packer wide receiver Ty Montgomery:
Tight end Austin Hooper came in this year's combine as one of the top players at the position. He further solidified that with a solid combine, and it didn't hurt that Hunter Henry, an Arkansas tight end who many consider to be the top tight end in this year's draft, didn't participate in on-field drills.
Here is what the NFL Network's Mike Mayock has to say about Hooper:
Guard Joshua Garnett had a noteworthy interview session to start the week when he said his goal was to block through his opponent's soul. He had a strong workout in front of NFL scouts, and Mayock believes Garnett is a top-notch blocker in the run-game.
ESPN's Josina Anderson also liked what she saw from Garnett and his career aspirations after football.
So now comes the time where players continue to work out and prepare for the unknown as April 28th approaches.
The scouting is just beginning.
