January ’16

The diary blog page of Blake (#73) and Sean Muir (#74), brothers, former
Sutherland Seahawk players and now Baylor Football offensive linemen.

January 19th 2016,

The Baylor football team is back into training today for the off season, so Sean is now essentially a Junior. Time sure does fly. They will build towards spring practice starting the last week of February.

Blake is working on multiple tasks on the way to the scheduled April 28-30th Draft.

Baylor finished #13 in the Final AP Poll after yesterday’s National Championship game.

Obviously not the result they were looking for in the end and after watching how Oklahoma and Michigan State fared in the Cotton Bowl no doubt there is a feeling of what could have been without so many injuries at the QB position.

The final grading table has been published on the Baylor Athletics website.

Some curious gradings, but overall Blake was the top or equal top grading in 4 games behind Outland Trophy finalist and AP All-American Spencer Drango who has 7. Blake was 2nd with 89.2, Drango was first with 90.4

There is a lot to like about Blake as a prospect and its obviously an important relationship, that of agent and player.

* Blake ended his career with 37 starts from 37 games Left tackle (12), Left Guard (23), Right tackle (2).
* He only missed 4 practices his entire career. 1 in 2012 for sickness and 3 in spring 2014.
* Played in 3 different offenses; 2011 Run and Shoot, 2012 Pro-style, 2013-2015 Power Spread.
* GPA over 3.6 and academic all conference every year, both Mountain West and Big 12.
* Graded 2nd behind an Outland trophy finalist in 2014 and 2015.
* All conference Big 12 1st team in 2015 by ESPN and Bleacher Report.
* Set testing records at Hawaii and has the highest testing results of multiple disciplines of his position at Baylor regarding speed, jumping and agility.
* At 6’5″ 3/8 and 320lb you’d think that SOMEBODY would like him.

The boys are back in Waco. Sean starts school on Monday and Blake has to meet with some agents over the new few days. Depending how a few things go, Blake will be back home in a week or so or several. A lot of loose ends to tie up right now.

Nice to see Pro Football Focus grade Blake well for the bowl game, 3rd overall on the offense.

ESPN released is ‘Big 12 All Bowl Game Team’. Blake was named as one of the offense tackles, along with several team mates.

The boys have arrived back home for a short stay. If you want to catch up with them you’ll have to be fast as Sean has to return shortly to start school and Blake has to go and organize some things in preparation for the lead up to the NFL Draft in May.

In the mean time, a nice acknowledgement of how well the Baylor OL did in the bowl game from publication College Football News.

Add to that, Johnny Jefferson was listed individually at 5th spot. The full list can be found here.
