Sean O’Connell, “Pretty good looking corner prospect. Has a very nice back pedal and nice fluid hips. Blake also does a nice job in run support as well. He does a nice job of shedding blockers and is a good tackler. He will need a redshirt year in order to fill out his frame, but he has the abilities to be a solid corner.

Barry Every, “Corner is the most difficult defensive position to have an early impact. Look for a redshirt season followed by a season of special teams and nickel/dime packages. Countess should become a very good two-year starter.”

Scott Kennedy, “A strong, hard hitting defensive back, Countess does a good job of jamming his receiver at the line of scrimmage. Flips his hips well to run with a receiver. An asset in the run game because of his willingness to make a hit. Size and skill set of a cornerback with the mentality of a safety. Comes out of his breaks and closes on the ball very well. Not the biggest DB on the field, but usually one of the toughest.”

Scout Inc., “Countess is not elite in one particular area but is very well-rounded, reliable and consistent. Brings some intangibles to the position and should fit into a number of defensive schemes at the next level.”
