Analysis

Strengths

Has functional strength to take-on and good tackling strength. Flows to the ball and gives effort in pursuit. Intense and aggressive. Has special-teams experience. Hardworking and football smart. Vocal leader.

Weaknesses

Lacks ideal height. Average eyes and instincts -- can be a tick late reacting and be fooled by backfield deception. Stiff hips. Pedestrian foot speed and range. Struggles in coverage. Liability in pass coverage. Weight has fluctuated in the past -- has been as heavy as 265 pounds.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

The Bearcats' defensive MVP, Blair is a short, productive middle linebacker-only who was not a consistent playmaker at the college level. Lacks ideal athletic traits for the pro game, including desirable speed, athleticism and versatility.
