  • LeGarrette Blount Suspended for the Season

    As a Pac-10 fan, I'm a bit shocked at all the love Blount is getting in the early 2010 lists I'm seeing on here. I think the 2010 crop of Pac-10 runners is pretty overrated for the most part. Joe McKnight is a poor man's Reggie Bush and Jahvid Best is acutely undersized with serious durability issues. But no one is more overrated than LeGarrette Blount.

    Putting the impressive stats aside, his game just doesn't translate to the NFL level. He's an upright runner with a high center of gravity and poor change of direction skills. I think he's total fool's gold and a 4th-7th round pick at best.

    I don't think he's one of the top 5 pro RB prospects in the conference, let alone the country. Where is all the Blount hype coming from?

    Yeah, I was pretty shocked when i saw him in an early 2010 mock going TOP 3. Chris Wells, Knowshon Moreno, Donald Brown are all much better runners than Blount and they were picked after 11. He's a good runner, but in no way top 3 and hell, I have him as a 3rd rounder right now. I don't get the love either.

        I find it interesting. I wonder how many people here have seen more than maybe one or two Oregon games from last season. I think he's a really good RB but I wonder if he's overhyped on this forum thanks to some youtube videos.

          A lot of the high rankings are probably just from what people think he is capable of doing this season, much like how Michael Johnson and Fili Moala were the top 2 in most mocks before last season.

          Just a guess...don't know much about Blount

            He's overhyped because he's 6'3 and everyone's looking for the next Brandon Jacobs which he definitely isn't.

                He's like 240 isn't he....more like a TE...

                Anyways, I'm high on Blount (pun intended), however that is from an introductory perspective only. I think I, as well as others, need to see more from him, especially in the open field, because he's proven to be great goal line runner and north south, but I haven't seen anything of him in space.

                  Triangle numbers, more or less. Plus is isn't like underclassmen seriously get broken down until they declare or they aren't underclassmen anymore.

                    I like Bount, but not as much as others it seems, I have 5 RBs who I like more than him who could be in next year's draft, and he is right in that 6-8 level of RBs IMO. He has a lot of potential and has good measurables, which is why he is so high right now.

                      Blount is very overrated, to me the only first round prospect next year is jonathan dwyer

                        Well I guess if you forget about Tom Brady's stats, he's just an unathletic white guy.

                          What a beast, he looks like another Larry Johnson.
