2012 NFL Combine Results: Baylor Center Philip Blake Middle Of The Pack After Bench Press

As of right now, only the offensive linemen and tight ends are the only two positions groups to do any drills at the 2012 NFL Combine. Both the linemen and tight ends have finished doing as many reps as possible on the bench press and while Stanford's David DeCastro stood out as the top lineman with 34, according to's Rob Rang, Baylor's Philip Blake fell into the middle of the pack with 22 reps.

Blake's 22 reps put him in 11th place among aspiring NFL linemen, tied with Southern Miss' Lamar Holmes. Blake is considered by many scouts to be a top-five center in this year's draft class, but after a mediocre showing on the bench press and being of just average size, Blake's draft stock could fall after the combine. He still has some time to prove to people that he's worth a higher draft pick, though.
