College career

After redshirting in 2005, Blackmon recorded 18 tackles, including 2.5 for loss, in six games in 2006, which earned him a spot on the The Sporting News Freshman All-America Second Team. He amassed 41 tackles, including 25 solo, in last seven games of the 2007 season. He added 21 tackles in 2008 and has 84 tackles for his career.

Blackmon has battled suspensions and injuries during his collegiate career. Blackmon was suspended from playing in Auburn's first three games of the 2006 season.[2] In 2008, Blackmon suffered a broken bone in his wrist in the fourth game of the season.[3]
