A former JUCO CB who transferred to USC from Colorado, Blackmon is a fast-rising cornerback prospect in the 2023 NFL draft. In 25 games with the Buffs, he recorded 87 tackles, three tackles for loss, two sacks, 13 passes defended, a fumble recovery and two interceptions. This season he has 12 total tackles, a tackle for loss, two passes defended and an interception in three games played.
Listed at 6-foot and 175 pounds, Blackmon has the flexibility to lineup both inside and outside. USC considers him a matchup chess piece that they can align opposite any team’s top receiver. Kansas City has a deep cornerback room, but that sounds like a skillset they could use at a position that requires a lot of depth.
