  2022 PRESEASON DOAK WALKER AWARD CANDIDATE: E.J. Smith (Jr.), Stanford,...While this may be a common surname, E. J. Smith is descended from football royalty. Hint, E. J. stands for Emmitt James. Yep, his father, Emmitt, is the Pro Football Hall of Famer who rushed for 18,355 yards and 164 touchdowns in 15 NFL seasons. Meantime, E. J. enters his junior year at Stanford trying to carve out his own legacy. As a sophomore in 2021 he was on the Pac-12 Academic Honor Roll; appeared in seven games with one start; Rushed for 133 yards, averaging 5.1 yards per carry, with one touchdown; Added 15 receptions for 74 yards. He scored his first career touchdown on a fourth quarter run, totaling 41 yards (Sept. 18). Even if E. J.'s college rushing counted towards the pros, he still has 10.35 miles to go to catch dad. - Stanford Football

  2022 PRESEASON MAXWELL AWARD WATCH LIST: Tanner Mckee, Stanford,...After a Mormon mission in Brazil for almost two years, quarterback Tanner McKee finally into full-time campus and football life last year. Stanford's online media page keeps referencing his 2021 football accomplishments as those of a "freshman" although it is listed as his sophomore season and he did play in 2020 (3 for 7, 62 yards), which would have been his freshman season. Right? But perhaps there is some Covid math in there and the folks at Stanford think on a different level, so the rest of us struggle to understand. Regardless, as a 6-6, 226 pound quarterback, probably a sophomore, in 2021, McKee started nine games, making 10 appearances on the season. He threw for 2,327 off 206-of-315 (65.4%), scored 19 total touchdowns. Became the 13th FBS quarterback since 2012 to beat a ranked opponent on the road in a first career start at No. 14 USC . . . went 16-of-23 for 234 yards, with two passing touchdowns, no interceptions, and one rushing touchdown . . . three total touchdowns are tied with Kevin Hogan (2012) for the most total touchdowns by a Stanford quarterback in their first career starts. His size, arm-strength and football IQ make him a strong NFL prospect. - Stanford Football and Frank Cooney/Draft Scout Commentary

  As a veteran safety with three Big 12 Championships and two College Football Playoff semifinals under his belt with Oklahoma, Patrick Fields brings the kind of experience a floundering Stanford program desperately needs. When he suits up for the Cardinal next fall, Fields will fulfill one of his biggest childhood dreams. As a freshman in 2018 he watched teammate Kyler Murray win the Heisman Trophy and played in the CFP semifinals. But he had other goals, including a degree in Science and Engineering. "I told myself as a freshman, I want to grad transfer to Stanford," Fields said. "He kind of has a different mentality," said fifth-year wide receiver Michael Wilson. "He's used to winning...because that's all he knows at OU." Fields will have three college degrees by the time he wraps up his college football career, but playing in the NFL is still his next goal. - The Stanford Daily

  We envision McKee as one of the top quarterbacks in the conference - and a potential high-round draft pick - but cannot ignore his skinny frame, lack of mobility, wobbly offensive line and the potential for injury. Patu attempted just 16 passes in his rookie season. The Cardinal stands as a classic QBCQ case study: It has no reason to worry about its quarterback play, unless it has reason to panic. - Oakland Tribune

  The best pure passer in the conference since Stanford's Davis Mills in 2020, the 6-foot-6 McKee has the pocket skills necessary to become a Day One pick. He's not as mobile as Mills, which could limit his NFL value and seemingly increases the chances of injury given Stanford's likely reliance upon the passing game. But if he stays healthy and slings it as we expect, the scouts will rave. - Denver Post
