Perhaps most famous for punching an opponent in a college match, LeGarrette Blount was immediately red flagged by many teams. However, the Titans and 49ers were quick to act following the draft, and Blount chose to sign with Tennessee in the hope of more game time.
The Oregon running back showed his exceptional promise at his pro-day, but many teams were unwilling to consider him due to his character issues. He has the ability to run over tackles, and shows good quickness and change of direction.
Blount is a big back at 241 pounds, but will use his power to break tackles and make yards after contact. The only real questions surrounding his talent, is whether he will be on the field enough to demonstrate it.
Most were surprised Blount went undrafted, but he had several suitors following the end of the draft. He spurned the 49ers to gain more playing time, as competition with Glen Coffee, Anthony Dixon, and Frank Gore would have limited his time on the field.
Instead Blount took advantage of LenDale White's trade to Seattle, and signed to become backup to Chris Johnson. Blount will have an opportunity to play behind the best running back in the league, and the Titans will hope that CJ2K can help him get back to his best following last year's lengthy suspension.
He has the potential to perform in the NFL, and if he can overcome his character issues, and control his temper, then the Titans have made an outstanding piece of business here.
