Criner’s Critique
“By adding Jon Blackman to our offensive line, we addressed our No. 1 need … He is an outstanding, experienced tackle with an excellent chance to compete for a starting position on our team … He and OT Lonnie Palelei played together at Philadelphia and know what it takes to succeed.”
