Scouting Report on Blake Lueders

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 09/30/2009

  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: A huge and strong-looking athlete that fills up a doorway when he walks into a room. He has that thick football neck that makes him look like one mean player. He has the potential to play at 270 pounds before his career is over. This is a Brian Urlacher-looking kid on the hoof.
Needs improvement: It is not out of the realm of possibility for him to play linebacker, but he most likely will end up with his hand on the ground. This means working on pad level and using his arms and hands versus much bigger lineman. He will also need to develop an assortment of pass-rushing moves rather than using his brute strength and speed to create a consistent pass rush.
Most impressive: Huge, athletic kid that runs extremely well for his size whether blitzing or laterally running sideline to sideline. Lueders understands the importance of wrapping up and running his feet after contact with the ball carrier. He is also a punishing tackler that loves inflicting pain.
Conclusion: It is really going to be hard to keep him from playing early and often. His combination of sheer athleticism and size make him a mismatch for linemen to block. He possibly is the most underrated prospect in the entire nation, partially due to the fact that he is not from a football hotbed.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
