Getting Defensive: The Top Defensive Prospects From The American

Cincinnati: Greg Blair, LB

Blair is another lesser-known player featured on earlier this season. He is a big inside linebacker who has surprising speed for a man his size. Blair is currently playing at 252 pounds this season, after playing a majority of his collegiate career at closer to 270. This has allowed him to stay on the field for more plays and make a bigger impact for Cincinnati.

Blair is a strong player in defending the run, using great instincts and great size to swallow up runners. And he can also make plays in the passing game, which he is doing more with his new body.
