LeGarrette Blount Hurdle Video: Watch Bucs' Bruising RB Leapfrog Titans Defender

And they said big men couldn’t be athletic.

For those who missed it, Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount hit his weekly hurdle against the Tennessee Titans in spectacular fashion.

Blount is 6’0” tall and almost 250 pounds. The man is built to run through tacklers, which makes the hurdle move even more exciting.

With the Buccaneers trying to march the ball down the field, Blount goes out for a swing pass. He catches the pass and starts heading up field.

The Titans cornerback starts to prepare himself for the head-on collision he thinks is coming. You can’t blame him for getting low to brace for the hit of a 250-pound running back, anyone would do that.

Blount knows this as well, and uses his amazing lower body strength to embarrass Tennessee’s secondary.

With a jump that could steal your heart, Blount leaps like he isn’t a bruising running back.

This is the Blount Tampa Bay fans and fantasy owners thought they were getting this season, but injuries and a lack of consistency led to a terrible start to the year. It’s a new season now.

If Blount can continue to show just how dominant he can be against the NFC South division foes, there is still a chance that the Buccaneers can make the playoffs.

And P.S. Enjoy the slow motion view at the very end. That's just dirty!
