The 2012 NFL Scouting Combine officially kicked off today as offensive linemen and tight ends from around the country weighed in and were measured. It may seem weird that this is such a big deal and that players are led around like prize bulls in a farmer's auction, but this is literally the beginning of the biggest job interview in these players' lives.
There was one Baylor Bears offensive lineman present at weigh ins, center Philip Blake, and thanks to WalterFootball.com, we have the results.
Blake stood at 6-foot-2 and weighed in at 311 pounds and had an arm length of 33 inches. Tomorrow, he'll get timed at the 40-yard dash and he'll show off his upper body strength on the bench press.
Blake started 25 games as Baylor's center and was an honorable mention for the All-Big 12 team in 2011. Blake is considered by ESPN's draft In$ider to be this year's draft class' fourth best center.
