Draft Profile: Bio
Blake Whiteheart from Mount Tabor High High School was rated a 3-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 3-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Whiteheart opted to join Wake Forest.

In 2018 as a freshman Whiteheart saw action in just 2 games for the Demon Deacons and didn't feature in the passing game.

As a sophomore in 2019 he played 5 games and featured little in the passing game.

As a junior in 2020 he played 9 games and hauled in just 5 catches for just 61 yards for an average of 12.2 yards per catch, with no TDs, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 97.9.

As a senior in 2021 he played 14 games and had 15 catches for 185 yards for an average of 12.3 yards per catch, 3 TDs, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 118.1.

As a fifth year senior in 2022 he played 11 games and had 23 catches for 287 yards for an average of 12.5 yards per catch, 3 TDs, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 117.6. In pass protection he gave up 2 pressures and no sacks.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Seems to enjoy the physical confrontation of blocking. Is willing to attack bigger defenders with explosive pop and good strength.
  • Good burst off the snap, quick hands and good balance to gain a clean release.
  • Above-average acceleration for a big man.
  • Looks to get involved downfield and will block multiple defenders on a single play when Whiteheart can. Understands his role as a blocker.
  • Good effort at the point of attack and second level as a blocker. Intelligent and will quickly acclimate to an NFL offense.
  • Has enough speed to challenge the seam but does not possess elite top-end speed.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Whilst Whiteheart is at his best running downfield, he lacks the elite top-end speed to be a field stretcher.
  • Essentially a muscled-up receiver in the passing game.
  • Whiteheart also lacks suddenness as a route runner, and that is a potential issue at the next level.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
