Mekhi Blackmon Scouting Report
Per NFL Draft Buzz, Blackmon has the following strengths and weaknesses:
- At his best in man coverage, moving down to guard tight ends and some bigger slot receivers
- At his best lining up in press coverage, sitting patiently before striking and then showing the foot quickness to mirror underneath
- Has the length and speed to emerge as a starter two or three years down the line
- Blackmon also does a nice job breaking down in space as a tackler after the catch
- Doesn’t have a physical edge to his game, lacking power in his initial punch. That holds true in run support as well, where Blackmon is hesitant to come downhill and misses too many tackles
- He’s not a tenacious tacker and plays the position with a wide receiver’s mentality

Would Mekhi Blackmon Fit on the Packers?
The Packers don’t need huge projects right now, especially at the cornerback position. This draft has so many cornerbacks that if GM Brian Gutekunst did want to take one, there are 50 that are more pro-ready than Blackmon.

However, under the right conditions, Blackmon could be a late-round steal. I would be surprised if he went before the seventh round and even more surprised if he ended up on the Packers.
