 Ed Blanton Grade: 3.05
 Position: T
 Class: 5Sr
 School: UCLA
 Conference: Pacific-10
 Ht., Wt.: 6-8, 345
 40 Time: 5.52

BIO: Three-year starter at both the left and right tackle positions. Earned All-Conference consideration as a senior.

POSITIVES: King-sized blocker with growth potential. Walls defenders from the play, displays good hand punch and extends to keep opponents away. Plays with a wide base, patient and steers opponents from the action. Gets movement from run blocks, turning opponents off the ball.

NEGATIVES: Lacks balance and blocking range. Marginally strong for his size and does not finish blocks. Exploited by quick, nimble opponents.

ANALYSIS: Consistent and durable on the college level, Blanton has an NFL body for the strong-side tackle position yet must take his game to another level for any chance of playing on Sundays.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
