BIOGRAPHY: Former defensive lineman who started at offensive tackle the past three years. All-Conference selection as a senior.
POSITIVES: Massive college blocker who.s best suited for guard at the next level. Patient, plays with great quickness, and displays lateral blocking range. Makes effective use of angles, keeps his feet moving, and strong at the point. Steers defenders from their angle of attack, easily anchors at the point, and fights until the whistle blows. Plays with good pad level, shows ability on the second level, and works to finish blocks.
NEGATIVES: Overextends and bends at the waist, which hurts his balance. Falls off blocks and does not consistently finish.
ANALYSIS: Blair is a wide-bodied lineman who shows ability in pass protection and blocking for the running game. He must improve his overall balance, yet he offers a good degree of upside and is a potential starter two years down the road.
