You may not have heard of Josh Bell, but William Blackmon is another story. Blackmon is a Rhode Island native and is currently the corner back and return specialist for the Green Bay Packers.
William Blackmon came right out off the Boston College Eagles football team and onto the Packers in the 2006 NFL Draft. As a college football player for the Eagles, Blackmon proved to be outstanding from the beginning. Blackmon continued to improve over his four years at Boston, earning Big East Defensive Player of the Week and All-Big East Second Team honors. Blackmon was also selected to participate in the Senior Bowl in his last season.
Upon graduation, William Blackmon knew for sure he wanted to continue his football career and was given the opportunity to play for the Green Bay Packers shortly after. In his first season with the Packers, Blackmon had a 57 yard punt-return touchdown and was apart of the 38-7 win for the NFC North title. Blackmon proved himself to his team when he became the fourth player in NFL history (since 1974) to accomplish the feat of a kick and fumble return in the same game.
