Scouting Report: David Blanchard – Orioles Forty First Round Pick

More info:

I believe his brother, Coty, is also in this draft, and is a better prospect.

    I googled Coty Blanchard and what I could find suggests he’s a decent football QB prospect. Looks like he was named Mr. Football in AL or something to that extent

      Thanks for the info! If you drop the link in the comments I’ll add it to the page at the end of the draft.

    Blanchard was a three sport all-star at Cherokee County High School in Centre, AL. QB that led FB team to a 15-0 4A State Championship. Named Alambama’s Mr. Football. A human highlight reel in every sport. With Blanchard in the game it’s like having a coach on the gridiron, hardcourt or diamond. Very coachable and driven.
