Julian Blackmon named top 5 DB for 2018 by @NFL

The NFL’s twitter handle ranked the top defensive backs heading into the 2018 football season and Julian Blackmon came in at number 5.

The MVP of the Heat of Dallas bowl is coming off a 4 interception, 10 PBU and 48 tackle season. Julian Blackmon has the vertical leap to grab passes out of the sky and the speed to cover any receiver in the conference. November 3rd at ASU will be the toughest test of the year for Blackmon as he will be asked to cover the top receiving prospect in the country, N’Keal Harry. If Blackmon has another solid season for the Utes it might make sense for him to consider making the early jump to the NFL.
