Scouting Oregon RB LeGarrette Blount
A constantly-updated progress report on Blount from the 2010 Senior Bowl.
Editor's note: Practice notes are updated daily and a final report will be completed on Friday.
On the field, Blount needs to run with passion, power and good pad level and power. He's not overly fast and he lacks great lateral quickness, so it will be important for Blount to stand out during inside run drills. He needs to show good vision to find cutback lanes and the ability to stick his foot in the ground and explode upfield. Blount must also show reliable hands and stand out as a pass blocker.
Off the field, Blount needs to win scouts over during one-on-one interviews. It will not bode well for Blount if he appears insincere or his answers about the punch he threw at a Boise State player seem too rehearsed.
Note: Grades are on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being the best.
