McShay's Top 32: McCaffrey rising up the board

Christian McCaffrey's athleticism and versatility have helped boost his stock. Where does he fall in Todd McShay's latest prospect rankings for the 2017 NFL draft?

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Stanford put on a balanced showing at its spring game, highlighted by some nice running from its young backs, including Trevor Speights -- cousin of NBA player Marreese Speights.

Stanford's spring game has been a fairly even affair thus far: After the Cardinal defense dominated the first few possessions, QB Ryan Burns led some successful scoring drives. Stanford has ripped off a pair of long runs with Cameron Scarlett and Dorian Maddox. Burns has thrown a TD pass in the seam to Donal Stewart.

Stanford's spring game begins in 20 minutes. RB Bryce Love, the heir apparent to Christian McCaffrey, won't be playing. Neither will starting QB Keller Chryst, who is rehabbing an injured knee. But the Cardinal's physical secondary and an important defensive line position battle will be on display.

Will Patriots target Christian McCaffrey?

If the Patriots drafted Christian McCaffrey, it'd be a perfect marriage between the draft's most versatile player and the NFL's most creative mind.

Stanford coach David Shaw still expects QB Keller Chryst (knee) to be healthy in time for fall camp. "Barring any setbacks... He should be doing full-speed drop-backs," he said.

Future defense rankings: Stanford

Stanford returns a veteran secondary led by safety Justin Reid. Overall, eight returning starters will be back on the defensive side of the ball.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

This is a really spirited Stanford scrimmage -- as fiery as I can remember. The deep secondary is playing as well as advertised, and they're bringing some celebratory swagger to each pick and big play they make. When the Cardinal offense responded with three straight TDs in goal line situations, the entire offensive coaching staff exploded and rushed onto the field.
