Former Auburn Wide Receiver Emory Blake brought his dad to help him work out at Pro Day, but he wasn't just there for moral support. Jeff Blake is a former NFL quarterback who still teaches QB camps in his free time. The 44 year old did not just help out his son, he threw to all the receivers looking to make an impressions on pro scouts.

Current Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn was impressed, "He's got a great arm and they've thrown alot of passes together over the years."

Emory was not invited to the NFL combine so this was his only chance to impress NFL teams. His father Jeff believes he was able to do that, "I think he did great. I mean he ran his routes very crisp as usual. Caught every ball as usual and he's very mentally prepared to come out and did well on his tests."
