Overview:

Blandin, who finished his career at Dixie State, after playing at both Fresno State, & Long Beach City College, played in 26 career games in 3 seasons, had 81 receptions, for 1351 receiving yards, and 16 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, he has good speed, is a solid pass cstcher, and a good route runner. He goes up, and gets the ball. He makes defenders miss, he breaks tackles, and is tough to bring down. He is an offensive play maker, and a dynamic play maker. He consistently beats his defender, and was a scoring machine throughout his college career. He is a mismatch for defenders due to his size frame, he is a very physical receiver, a tough nosed player, and has good instincts. He catches everything thrown his way, he is a great redzone threat, a good blocking receiver, and a good deep threat. On the other hand, while he has good speed, he does not have elite receiver speed, but that does not hurt his game, and 2017 was his first football action since the 2015 season, when he was at Fresno State. With that said, I view Blandin as a day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
