2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Philip Blake, C, Baylor

Baylor Bears center Philip Blake only began playing football his senior year of high school and he has emerged as a potential late round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Blake has progressed steadily throughout his college career, yet remains an average athlete with a lot to learn about the game. He possesses a big frame and holds his ground very well. Some scouts feel that he still has some ceiling to him because he is still learning the game. Against more nimble interior defenders, Blake struggled at times keeping up, especially late in games. Blake does well to mirror defenders and has solid footwork.

Realistically, Blake is a developmental player who will not be able to contribute early in his career. Teams looking for depth in the later rounds are likely to give him a shot to make their roster, but he does not have the ideal strength to play guard in the NFL. He will need to improve his position versatility in order to earn his keep. If he can slim down through his middle and add more muscle mass, he may be able to establish a career in the NFL.
