BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Used at both right tackle and right guard last year.
POSITIVES: Stout, wide-bodied blocker who dominates the opposition. Possesses big, powerful hands, turns defenders off the ball and opens holes for the running game. Quick off the snap, jolts defenders at the point and engulfs them altogether. Stays square.
NEGATIVES: Lacks lateral blocking range. Marginally effective in motion.
ANALYSIS: A versatile strong-side blocker, Blalock has immediate starting potential at the next level. Better off at guard, but offers possibilities at the right tackle position.
