Overview:

Blair has the size to play at the 3-4 defensive end spot, and the experience of playing in a 3-4 scheme at Appalachian State. He is a solid tackler, and a solid pass rusher. He was a tackling machine, and put up good sack numbers for Appalachian State. On the other hand, he is not the fastest edge rusher, and he only played 2 full years at the FBS level. With that said, I expect Blair to be a mid round pick.
