The Colts safety is considered a good fit for an NFC contender.

The trade deadline is less than a week away, and NFL.com is ready to ship this safety to the Indianapolis Colts as an NFC prospect.

The Indianapolis Colts are 3-4 in a rebuilding season. They likely won’t become buyers until the Oct.
31 trade deadline. However, you can move a player or two without much of an impact on their talent level.
Safety Julian Blackmon is a name that is becoming more and more popular as the deadline approaches.
ESPN mentioned Blackmon as a potential trade target earlier this week, and now NFL.com’s Kevin Patra has doubled down on the Detroit Lions as a perfect fit.
“If the Colts are looking for a way to get Nick Cross in the third round in 2022, they could facilitate that by moving on from Blackmon, who is in the final year of his rookie contract,” wrote Patra for the NFL.

Your Lions application may be damaged and you need assistance. Blackmon is the type of versatile quarterback who could help overcome Detroit’s injury woes.
The former third-round pick moved to strong safety this offseason after spending his first three seasons at free safety.
“Blackmon also played 103 snaps at slot corner for Indianapolis this season and earned a grade of 62.3, 12th among safeties, according to PFF.”

According to PFF, Blackmon is ranked as the 11th best safety in the NFL with an overall grade of 77.0. Cross has only scored 10 defensive goals this season.

The Lions are currently the second seed in the NFC and should be willing to part with future picks to solidify their status as a contender.
Blackmon just turned 25 and would be relatively cheap for a second contract despite his rookie deal expiring. He can be viewed as a building block for the Colts future, but if he is considered expendable, there is no shortage of suitors.
