2012 NFL Draft: Baylor's Philip Blake, Terrance Ganaway Will Also Be Drafted

We all know about Baylor's two stud pro prospects in the 2012 NFL Draft, as Robert Griffin III is slated to go No. 2 overall, and Kendall Wright figures to be a late-first round pick. In NFL.com's latest full, seven-round mock draft, the Baylor Bears will be sending two more players to the NFL over this weekend.

Baylor offensive lineman Philip Blake is projected to go No. 82 overall to the Tennessee Titans. Blake is listed at 6'3", 311 lbs, and started all 13 games at center this past year for Baylor. Blake was named to the First-Team All-Big 12 in 2011 as well. Blake has been versatile in college, as he shifted from tackle to center following the 2009 season.

Cowboys fans might be disappointed to see that Terrance Ganaway, a running back from Baylor, is projected to be selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the No. 153 pick in the draft. Like Blake, Ganaway was named to the First-Team All-Big 12 in 2011. Ganaway set or tied 13 school records in 2011, on his way to rushing for a staggering 1,556 yards and scoring 21 touchdowns.

It's been one of, if not the, best year athletically for Baylor, and that looks to continue as four players from Baylor appear set to be drafted this weekend.
