March ’16

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

March 30th 2016,

Due to the weather effecting last week’s scrimmage, Baylor will do a family day event as advertised in the link below. Hard to tell yet if Sean will be healthy for the end of the spring practice schedule. Blake on the other hand has an in person meeting with an NFL coming up in the next few days.

March 22nd 2016,

Baylor’s Spring practice continues, Sean will have to sit out a week with a sprained ankle; unusual for him to be injured, but there are worse times to be injured than Spring.

The team had to move an originally scheduled Friday Night scrimmage at the stadium to the indoor facility due to bad weather. A full recap can be found on the Baylor Athletics page. 

For Blake, the period for Draft prospects between Pro Day and Draft is all about in person meetings. One never knows exactly who, and to what extent, a team is genuinely interested. So far the Ravens, Chiefs, Texans, Jaguars, 49ers and Patriots have shown the most interest. The only way to be sure about the level of interest will be when the Draft begins April 28th.

Pro Day has arrived. I’ll post updates later. Click the link to yesterdays post to watch live.

Blake’s broad jump of 9’8″ was better than any OL at the combine (9’7″ was the top jump) and 32″ in the vertical leap was equal 5th of the best vert from 2015 (OL did not jump at 2016 combine).

In the end, Blake had the #1 Broad Jump, #3 shuttle, #5 vertical leap, #9 3 cone drill and #14 bench compared to the 52 OL at the combine.

It was a pity that he didn’t get a chance to do it at the combine and that he was nursing a hamstring injury. 3 weeks ago Blake strained his hamstring at a mock testing day and has had to severely alter his training since then. His 10 yard dash times in the 1.6 range and 20 yard dash times in the 2.8 range suggest that he would have been in the low 4.9 range for the 40. All at 6’6″ and 315lb.

As it stands he demonstrated very well what sort of athlete he is and that is hard to complain about.

5 weeks till the draft!!!

Baylor’s Pro Day is tomorrow.

You can follow live online from the Baylor Athletics site with this link.

Its Spring break for Baylor students, and just one week away from Pro Day.

The Baylor Football twitter page had a nice upload of Blake today.

March 4th 2016,

Spring football is already humming along for the Baylor Bears. Sean has been taking reps as 2nd team Center behind Senior Kyle Fuller. Today is the first scrimmage of the year.

Blake is busy preparing for the Pro Day which will be on Wednesday March 16th. This will be early in the morning on Thursday 17th. If it runs as per last year, there will be a live stream available on the day which this blog will post a link to when we get closer.

Last year’s run sheet put the Bench first followed by Broad Jump and Vertical leap, then 40 yard dash, shuttle, 3 cone drill and finally positional drills.
