Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about QUIN BLANDING: Virginia, 6020 207 4.65. Four-year starter from Virginia Beach, VA. The all-time Cavalier career tackle leader with 495 stops. Good initial read and react with smooth back pedal in deep coverage. Disciplined downhill shuffle when playing close to the box. Takes good angles in pursuit and is always around the ball. Good change of direction with ability to make plays in space. Inconsistent taking on blocks as he tends to get upright and let blockers get into his frame and control him. Can slip blocks on the move. Rarely out of position but will miss a tackle at times. Not an explosive tackler and a strong back will occasionally run through him. Very good in deep coverage with zone awareness. Sees pattern pressure and the quarterback normally getting to the right spot on the throw. Does not get attracted to the short route in a zone or drift out of his work. Plays the deep ball well. Overall ball skills are good but there is some hesitation at times on his break. Not a great match-up safety but he was not asked to do that much in the Virginia scheme. Speed receivers can be a problem. Has potential as a two-way safety but will have to demonstrate speed. 2017 stats: 137 T, 3.5 TFL, 2 PBU, 1 QBH, 4 INT. OSR:15/21. Fifth/sixth round. (A-31 3/4, H-8 3/8, VJ-31.5, SS-DNP).
