Bio:Three-year starter who's been used at both
outside and middle linebacker as well as defensive
end. Finished his senior campaign with 70/
Positives: Tenacious defender, yet limited athlete
with marginal upside for the next level. Hardnosed
linebacker that reads the action, works to
get involved in the play and wraps up tackling.
Breaks down well holding his ground against
blocks, does not bite on play-action passes
and quickly recognizes assignments. Adequate
depth on drops in zone coverage.
the ability to quickly change direction or redirect
to ball carriers. Stiff and lacks abilities in pursuit.
Analysis: A hard-working prospect who plays
with great passion, Blackburn lacks the desired
measurables for the next level. Could catch on
as a backup inside linebacker for a 34 defense
and definitely has a special teams mentality.
