  • Can track the ball downfield and gets his head around when playing in a trail position, and Blaylock shows excellent ball skills when breaking on a route. He’s a plus tackler in run support as well.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Alert defender for zone coverage, showing good understanding of route progressions occurring behind him and a quick burst downhill to break on underneath passes in front of him.
  • Has a powerful punch at the line of scrimmage and can deliver it while moving his feet. Blaylock also has the powerful core and hips to stick to a receiver downfield and escort him to the sideline
  • Tracks the ball well downfield and shows good ball skills, including the ability to go up and high-point it in contested-catch situations.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Needs to develop a better understanding of route combinations and better overall vision.
  • Isn’t great in route recognition when he’s facing the action, is hesitant and susceptible to double moves, and too often gets unnecessarily handsy when playing trail position
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
