Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Blake is a stout pivot with excellent strength and power. He moves defenders off the ball and is capable of working to the second level on movement plays.

  • 6'2" Height
  • 33" Arm Length
  • 311LBS. Weight
  • 9 7/8" Hands

Overview

A native of Canada, Blake didn't play football until his senior year of high school. He spent two years at Champlain Regional College in Quebec and a year at Tyler Junior College in Texas before becoming a three-year starter at Baylor. There, he led the offensive line that protected quarterback Robert Griffin III in his Heisman Trophy-winning campaign. Blake has good size for his position and is continuing to improve, which should make him a solid late-round pick.

Analysis

Strengths

Blake is large and fits well on his blocks. Once there, he can sustain and will fight to stay involved. He is quick when pulling, and will stay in front and mirror defenders in his pass set. He was a stalwart contributor to Baylor's offense up front.

Weaknesses

Blake is still a developing talent with average athletic ability and skills. He's had difficulty against more athletic opponents in the past and will need time to become an NFL-caliber starter.
