An eligible sophomore, Blackman was a 20th-round pick out of high school (Brewers) in 2014 but stumbled out of the gate as a freshman, hitting just .197 for Mississippi. That was a concern because his bat was supposed to be his carrying tool due to a quick, line-drive swing. He rebounded as a sophomore for the Rebels, hitting .322/.392/.435. His power is mostly to the gaps, and while he's an average runner, he's not a base stealer. Blackman's defense at second has improved but his value remains in his improving bat.
