John Blake is a mix of all the various different Robins, but mainly has the characteristics of Tim Drake. Bruce himself has said that Tim has more potential as a detective. Drake can outsmart Ra's Al Ghul. Ra's even calls him "detective".

Doesn't Blake talk about polyisobutylene and something about how it is used in explosives, before the stadium scene? There are little hints throughout the film that this guy knows his stuff. A big contrast between him and the young cop in the Return of the Batman scene, who is all "What's going on with the lights?" and "sorry" lol.

Just like Drake, Blake has more potential as a detective. Bruce knows it too, both in the comics and in the film.
