Health has been an issue for Blair as he has suffered injuries in both seasons of his NFL career. As a rookie in 2019, Blair played in 14 games with three starts, racking up 32 tackles, two forced fumbles and a pass deflection. During the 2020 season, Blair appeared in just two games before suffering a season-ending injury.
Blair was selected in the second round with the 47th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks.
