2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Robert Blanton, CB, Notre Dame
Blanton can best play the pass in off zone coverage and is aggressive enough to provide help against the run game. He has a lot of experience playing the slot and coaches may try to put him up against a bigger tight ends. Although he lacks top end speed, Blanton is a high football IQ player that makes up for a lack of athleticism with smart play and good size.
He's not a natural cornerback and gets too upright during his backpedal. He also can't handle single man coverage. Blanton isn't strong enough for bump and run coverage and would need over the top help. As long as teams are patient with him, they'll have added a good depth player.
