Blair was impressive in his debut. He had 16 disposals (7 kicks and 9 handballs), took 2 marks and had 5 tackles in an 83-point win for Collingwood. The week after against Port Adelaide he continued to impress by kicking 2 goals. In round 20 against Essendon, he was one of the best players in Collingwood's 98 point win. His 27 disposals and 2 goals was rewarded with one vote in the Brownlow Medal.[1]

Blair played in the drawn 2010 AFL Grand Final and was a member of Collingwood's Premiership side a week later in the replay. At 20 years of age Blair was the second-youngest member of Collingwood's 2010 Premiership team after 19-year-old Steele Sidebottom.

In round 3 of 2011, Blair kicked a career-high 5 goals against Carlton. In round 20 that year he kicked four goals against Port Adelaide.

He is the nephew of Morningside premiership coach and former VFL player John Blair.[2] Blair's grandfather John O'Mahony played for Hawthorn between 1951 and 1960.[3]

On 30 October 2018, Blair was delisted by Collingwood.[4]
