Blake Corum scouting report

Corum isn’t known for his size or his speed, yet he has plenty of shiftiness and has a claim to being the best Michigan running back ever. Corum scored a school-record 27 times on the ground last season, which included at least one score in all eight available rushing lanes from left to right. He does the bulk of his work between the tackles and simply knows how to find the end zone; he scored at least one touchdown in in each of the final 26 games in which he wasn’t injured.

Blake Corum highlights

Corum had a career’s worth of highlights just last season. Against Penn State, he ran 26 times (U-M didn’t attempt a pass in the second half) as he tallied a season-high 145 rushing yards and two touchdowns in the road win. But the signature play game in the rivalry game against Ohio State. Tied at 17 midway through the third quarter and right after lineman Zak Zinter suffered a season-ending leg injury, Corum ripped through the hole for a 22-yard touchdown run and flashed a 6-5 for his fallen teammate, setting off a frenzy at the Big House, where U-M held on to beat the Buckeyes for a third straight season. 

Blake Corum pro day results

Corum led all running backs in bench press reps (27) and then finished second in the three-cone drill (6.82 seconds) and third in the 20-yard shuttle (4.12 seconds) After logging his 4.53-second 40-yard dash, Corum received a 6.15 out of 8 for his workout per Next Gen Stats, which on their metric system equate to a “good backup with the potential to develop into a starter” in the NFL.
