Default LeGarrette Blount

How do we view LeGarrette Blount? 6'1" / 245lbs with power and speed. Suspended for punching another player. Stock is way down as a result.

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_669297.html

Silverback mauled a Card in the Super Bowl. Do we pass on a kid with this size and talent for a single infraction and some personal flakiness? We took Holmes in the first. This kid is now projected in the 5th.

It's hard for me to hold the punch against him. It was in the heat of the moment and and Bosie State player was talking trash. I think that we learned more about his character when he decided to stay with the team following an indefiniant suspension.

Bewteen Blount and Stefon Johnson, I feel we could find a good mid round back (assuming Parker is gone).

I like Stafon Johnson he has overcome a brutal weight lifting injury that probably should have killed him.

I watched him in the 40 and expected him to be slightly faster, unofficial 40 of 4.62.

You are correct.

Quote:
Both Faulk and Westbrook are known for their all-around ability, a trait shared by the most prominent back in this year's class, Georgia halfback Knowshon Moreno. Moreno only registered a Speed Score of 96.9 at the Combine, which would give him the lowest Speed Score of any first-round pick in the last ten years were he to be selected among the first 32 picks. Because of his versatility, though, it's likely that Moreno will perform better than this athletic indicator might expect him to on the professional level.

His primary competition in the first round is Ohio State back Beanie Wells. Although Wells ran a 4.59 40 to Moreno's 4.60, the fact that Wells weighs 18 pounds more than Moreno yields a respectable score of 105.9, projecting him as a back likely to experience some success on the NFL level, although one more worthy of a second-round pick; by comparison, of all the backs chosen in the first two rounds of the 2007 NFL Draft, only Felix Jones (103.7) and Ray Rice (99.7) had worse Speed Scores than Wells, a fact which is reflected in scouts' opinions of the two sets of classes.

Personally, I wouldn't be totally against drafting him. Yes he's had some issues, but what better to help remedy that than a team like the Steelers? I doubt we'd actually take him though. But that's just IMO.
