RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Blanton will serve as the backup to Mistral Raymond at strong safety.

2012

Blanton is a rookie fifth-round pick, and so a starting role is far from assured, but he is a good bet to emerge with the job, playing next to Harrison Smith, the fellow rookie and Notre Dame product. A college cornerback with safety athleticism by NFL standards, Blanton's physicality should help him make the transition to safety. If he emerges as a starter in what should be a leaky Minnesota secondary, he should see a good number of tackle opportunities.
