Will Edwards Blackmon (born October 27, 1984 in Cranston, Rhode Island) is an American football cornerback/ return specialist who currently plays in the National Football League for the Green Bay Packers. He was drafted in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft (115th pick overall). He played college football for the Boston College Eagles.

Blackmon earned first team All-America honors from USA Today and Parade as a senior at Bishop Hendricken High School in Warwick, Rhode Island. He was also named Rhode Island's player of the year by Gatorade. He garnered all-city honors three and all-state honors twice during his high school career. In 2002, Blackmon played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Blackmon had a 57 yard punt-return touchdown and a fumble-return touchdown as the Packers wrapped up the NFC North title with a 38-7 win on December 10, 2007 over Oakland. They were the first and second touchdowns of his career. He became just the fourth player in NFL history to accomplish the feat of a kick and fumble return in the same game, and the first since 1974. In 9 games, he recorded 4 solo tackles and a pass deflected. Blackmon has had injury trouble, having suffered two breaks of his left foot which kept him sidelined for much of the past two years.
