The Stanford Cardinal have to feel pretty confident they'll get at least three prospects taken in the 2016 Draft. Josh Garnett is likely to get picked on the second day and prospects like Blake Martinez and Austin Hooper are also expected to go early.

There are a few other players that you should monitor for later activity, particularly the winningest quarterback in Stanford history.

QB Kevin Hogan: Where could he go? Will an NFL team take a flyer on Hogan and try and develop him as a potential long-term solution at quarterback? Hogan isn't quite ready to be a pro, but with the right time and situation he could be ready to go.

OT Kyle Murphy: The Stanford offensive lineman has a lot of skill to protect the edge and be a very good linemen at the next level. He wasn't quite as dominant in college and still has a lot of development to do, but considering how quality tackles are in short supply, you'd expect some team to experiment with Murphy in the late rounds.

TE Devon Cajuste: Cajuste is a massive receiver. You have to figure someone will take a chance on him. Cajuste's versatility could come in handy as a goal-line type player who could also work in special teams-type situations.
