Pos: 
Explosive, athletic linebacker prospect who shows a variety of ability. Quick, breaks down well and uses his hands to protect himself. Agile, flexible and very effective in pursuit. Forceful up the field on the blitz, shows the ability to bend off the edge and plays with a violent attitude. Possesses a closing burst of speed in every direction, nicely redirects to the action and constantly flies around the ball. Effective in space, remains disciplined with assignments and quickly locates the ball. Plays with suddenness and flashes on the scene out of nowhere.
Neg: 
Not a stout tackler and needs to drag opponents down. Possesses average size and speed numbers and did not test well during pro day.
Analysis: 
Blunt was a forceful, explosive linebacker at the small-school level but may be tapped out physically. He's a run-and-chase defender who must stand out on special teams to make it out of camp.
