It’s unclear where he’ll play, but expect to see Philip Blake on the field somewhere for the Broncos this season. Able to line up at either guard or center, the 26-year-old Blake has terrific size and good feet, and played all across the line while at Baylor. Given the gruesome ankle injury suffered by ORG Chris Kuper in Week 17 of the 2011 season, Kuper's status and ability for the future is unknown, and Blake could fill in for him. Blake also could replace the underperforming J.D. Walton, his former college teammate, at center. Blake said he is “very comfortable” playing either position, having seen time at both spots in college and at the Senior Bowl. We hear Blake’s versatility was one of the reasons he was so highly desired by the Broncos, who are expected to put that skill set to good use early on.
