BEREA, Ohio — The Seattle Seahawks selected former University of Utah defensive back Marquise Blair with the No. 47 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville, Tennessee Friday night.
A 6-foot-2, 195-pound safety for the Utes, Blair registered 106 total tackles, 79 solo stops and 27 assists with one forced fumble, two interceptions and four passes defended in his two years at Utah.
During the 2018 season, Blair set personal single-season bests with 59 total tackles, 44 solo stops, 15 assists, one forced fumble and two interceptions.
Before patrolling Utah’s secondary, Blair called Northeast Ohio home, as he is a native of Wooster.
