Player Overview

Blanchflower leaves UMass as the program's all-time leader for receiving yards (1,164) at tight end as a four-year starter.

Blanchflower earned a Scouting Combine invitation, but was not able to take part in the agility tests or position drills while recovering from sports hernia surgery that sidelined him for the final six games of his senior season.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Experienced and productive four-year starter. Excellent size for the position. Good, physical in-line run blocker. Tough competitor who is willing to sacrifice his body, which could make him a strong special teams player at the next level. Team captain.

WEAKNESSES: Durability concerns following sports hernia surgery. Average overall athlete. Isn't going to run away from many NFL linebackers and safeties and will need to find ways to create space. Not an open-field threat as a runner.
