There is only 1 on youtube and it is him chasing down a runningback 41 yards. He was a top five pick coming into the season, but I am surprised their is no videos about him

Yeah he obviously isnt a top 5 now, but I would like to see some tape of him when he was supposed to be a projected top 5 pick.

It was pretty much the consensus that he was top 5, or at least top 10, coming into the season (ala Quentin Moses for 07). Obviously he isn't that now due to performance and mental issues but that was then and this is now.

I remember Blake being a top 20 guy, somewhere between 10-20 though...

Tommy Blake was never a top 5 lock entering the year. At best, top 10, but more likely 10-20. Entering the year, the talk was around Darren McFadden, Glenn Dorsey, Jake Long, Brian Brohm as the main 4, from what I recall, with several guys in that 5th spot, ranging from 3 USC guys (Sam Baker, Sedrick Ellis, Keith Rivers), to 2 U guys (Calais Campbell, Kenny Phillips), and several other options.

I wouldn't touch Blake with a 10 foot pole. He has some serious personal issues and has openly admitted that football isn't a priority for him.

and i wouldn't touch him with his ^ ten foot pole. Well, i guess maybe in round 6 or later if my team had filled a lot of needs via the earlier part of the draft. He did have a pretty solid proday.
