NFL Media analyst and renowned draft expert Mike Mayock was in attendance at Stanford's pro day last week. Following the workout, Mayock took a moment to break down the Cardinal's top NFL Draft prospects.
Here are the analyst's six evaluations with notes about how each player fared in 2015.Kevin Hogan, QB
2015 Season: 2,867 passing yards for 27 touchdowns and eight interceptions … 336 rushing yards and two touchdowns … All-Pac-12 second team … Team captain.
Mayock: "I thought Hogan had a really solid day. He threw the ball well on some of the deep, out-breaking routes. I thought he threw the deep ball with timing, touch and accuracy. I thought his footwork, which I expected, was good. I think he goes mid-to-late rounds. Best case, he goes in the fourth or fifth round, but he's certainly a draftable quarterback."**
Josh Garnett, OG**
2015 Season: Outland Trophy Award winner (nation's best interior lineman) … Pac-12 Lineman of the Year … Unanimous All-American … All-Pac-12 first team.
Mayock: "I'm a big fan of his. I think I have him as my No. 2 guard. Worst case scenario for him is that he's a second-round pick and a Day 1 starter."Austin Hooper, TE
2015 Season: 34 catches for 438 yards and six touchdowns … Mackey Award finalist (nation's best tight end) … AP All-America third team … All-Pac-12 first team ... Hooper enters the NFL draft as a redshirt sophomore.
Mayock: "Hooper catches the ball well. He's a tight end that will probably, in this class, go in the second round. He's a big, strong kid, who's got to learn to be a more consistent blocker. But I thought he caught the ball and ran well today."Kyle Murphy, OT
2015 Season: All-Pac-12 first team.
Mayock: "I think Murphy is going to be a good tackle in the league for a lot of years. I think he's probably a mid-round guy. Teams are going to think he's a swing tackle initially, and then maybe after a couple years he's a starting right tackle. He's a kind of kid that because of his smartness and his toughness, he can play 10 years in the league."**
Brennan Scarlett, DL**
2015 Season: 36 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks … Two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery … All-Pac-12 honorable mention ... Scarlett came to Stanford in 2015 as a graduate transfer from Cal.
Mayock: "He wasn't even a combine invite, but I watched the tape and was intrigued by him. I wanted to see him today, and I thought he moved well. He's another draftable guy that no one talks about.Kevin Anderson, DL/LB
2015 Season: 40 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and two sacks … All-Pac-12 honorable mention … Team captain.
Mayock: "Kevin Anderson is a guy who his best tape was at the end of the year. He ran in the 4.8-range which is very average, but that's really not what he's about anyways. He's a smart, tough kid. He's going to be one of those guys that's going to make the team as a special teams player and earn time as a linebacker.
