The Cowboys filled their needs for offensive guards in free agency, but they have made no moves at center. That could change in the draft. One possiblity is Baylor center Philip Blake.
He will workout for the Cowboys and new offensive line coach Bill Callahan on Monday in Waco.
Blake's stock has been rising since his Senior Bowl and combine performances. The 6-2, 311-pounder had 22 reps in the 225-pound bench press, ran a 5.25 in the 40, had a 29 1/2-inch vertical jump and went 8 feet, 9 inches in the broad jump at the NFL Scouting Combine. He nad no need to show much more during Baylor's Pro Day on Wednesday, though he did perfectly execute several shotgun snaps to Robert Griffin III during Griffin's throwing session.
Blake, a Canadian, started all 38 games in his three seasons at Baylor after transferring from Tyler Junior College. He was first team all-Big 12 last season. He is projected as a fourth-round draft pick as the fourth-rated center in the draft.
Phil Costa was the Cowboys' starting center last season, but he rated only 30th at the position last season, according to Pro Football Focus. The Cowboys feel they have upgraded the guard position in free agency, getting Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings.
