Kendrick Blackshire Scouting Report
Kendrick Blackshire is a physical stud with an imposing upper body who looks like he was created in a custom player creator and is a Sports Illustrated All American candidate. Solid pass rusher that may develop into one of the top national run stoppers. Read and react skills are solid and he explodes to the runner. Strong tackler who lays big hits often. Gets off his blocks well and has good awareness of the ball carrier to make the stop in time as shown in the video below at the 02:13 mark. Freaky athletic ability. A unanimous top ten ranked linebacker prospect who didn't even play in 2019 after ACL surgery. (DT Yates)
