Mike Blanc
Position: DT
Class:  5Sr
School: Auburn
Conference: Southeastern
HT: 6-2.5
WT: 291
40 Time: 5.25
Biography: Full-time starter the past two years after playing with the first team half a season during his sophomore campaign. Totals last year included 26/4.5/2.5 after he had 32/6.5/3.5 as a junior.

Positives: "Explosive one-gap tackle who chases hard to make plays. Quick off the snap, moves well on his feet, and shows ability in space. Makes plays down the flanks and works hard until whistle blows. Effective with his hands and explosive in all his actions."

Negatives: Possesses a short burst of speed and ineffective in pursuit. Straight-line defender with an ordinary change of direction.

Analysis: Blanc is a hardworking college prospect who gets the most from his ability yet lacks the natural size and athleticism to be anything other than a camp body in the NFL.

Projection: FA
