    LeGarrette Blount

    I would love to se the Pats draft this kid in the second round. He is the "knockout" the Pats need at RB. Forget the incident, everyone makes mistakes. This kid is a beast.
    checkout his highlight video. Legit!

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    The kid is very talented and is not going in the first round. The Pats could def. spare a second round pick on him. Brady himself said it earlier this year. The Pats are a grind it out team. The 07' offensive more than likely will never happen again, at best Brady may have a 40 TD season again. He is in desperate need of a quality RB, one with some youth. Blount is a first round talent, but his knochout punch has dropped him significantly. They need to go get this guy. He is my favorite RB in the draft.

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    He is a solid RB and he might actually infuse some heart back into the Offense,of course will BB it's FB I.Q. first so if can't read and write then his chances of landing in Foxboro aren't good,McCuster is a 3rd down back,Dixon had a couple of nice runs,all in all there wasn't much running going on.

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    I'm totally biased because I'm a huge Ducks fan, but I would love it if they took Blount in the draft. I know a lot of people on the outside started viewing him as some kind of thug after the Boise State incident, but that's not the kind of person he is. Like you said, everybody makes mistakes. He lost himself in anger one time, and I think a lot of us know what it feels like to do or say something we wish we could take back. He worked really hard afterwards, even though he was told by Chip Kelly he wouldn't be allowed back on the team, and he deserved to be welcome back towards the end of the season. He's a good kid with a lot of talent.

    As for your projected round, that's a little high at the moment. Before his turnaround and the Senior Bowl, most mocks had him projected as a 5th-6th round pick. I'm now seeing speculation that he's improved his stock to the 3rd-4th round range. It could have a chance to rise again after U of O's Pro Day and the NFL combine, but for now, it's safe to say he is not a 2nd rounder.

    It would be great to see them take him, though! Since Sammy Morris is really wearing down, I think LGB would fit nicely in that type of role -- a physical back who would be fantastic in short yardage situations and red zone offense. Actually, with the type of run-blocking the Pats have (very little), they could probably use him often to really grind games out.

    We need someone who knows how to punch it in.

    "We need someone who knows how to punch it in."



    Especially with Koppen at center.

    I agree with arodrambone, I like Koppen but he just is nto getting it done, we need a big back who could offset this weekness in the blocking scheme.

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    Blount is not going in the first, second, or even third round. no way. Blount at best could be a 4th or more likely a later round selection. His bone head knockout took him out of being in contention for a first day pick. With a huge depth at running back this year, theres without a doubt Blount will go later in this draft. He missed nearly the entire season last year for character reasons. He needs to prove alot at the combine in order to have a team even draft him. Id like to see the patriots draft a big back - I like Matthew, Dwyer, Gerhart, then Blount.

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    I agree with most of what you guys are saying. The Pats have too many potential holes (OL, OLB, DE, DT ?) to fill before drafting a  RB like Blount. I like him more in the late 3rd than I do with the first four picks. I like him as a back, but running backs are dime a dozen. IMO that Belichick could go after a TE or QB for the future, although, I have no idea when or where in the draft he does this.

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    i don't think blount will last 'til the 4th. i believe he will go before gerhart. he suffers a little bit because he played fewer games but i believe the teams looking for a rb have taken notice.

    i was a big fan of gerhart back in nov and dec. however, blount is a better power back than gerhart. blount is quicker. blount has more and better moves carrying the ball. he's also nastier, bigger, and stronger.

    the question is if he can catch the ball or block.

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    I agree with Blount discussion.  IF he didn't punch that guy - and played the whole year - we would probably be discussing this guy in the top 15 in this years draft along with CJ Spiller....

    Pats NEED to HIT on a couple of these guys this year and make IMPACT right Aways!

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    The time to get a QB of the future is not this year... Brady has at least 4-5 years of solid play ahead of him so that means a QB would sit around for 4-5 years before getting a shot at starting. If you look at past situations most decent QB's that emerge after a star QB are brought along for no more then 3 years most 2. That means you are drafting a QB as a replacement for Brady no earlier then 2012.

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    Spiller is a guy I really like but I am shy about taking RB's early but he is one I would take the plunge for if he was there at 22 or if I had to move up just slightly to do it.

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    Everyone can talk about how tough Blount is, but I have watched him play this yr. in a few games as well as the SR. Bowl & it looks like sometimes he sees the inside b/w the tackles filled & then he tries to take the ball to the outside & then he is dragged down before he can turn up the field & get a full head of steam downhill running whereas Gerhart when he puts his foot in the ground he goes downhill quickly he doesn't try to take many runs to the outside like Blount.

    But, one positive about Blount is that I think that he could function well w/o a FB, but Gerhart in College had a FB, however he might not need one in the NFL.  Everyone wants someone who is fast & can get short yardage, but you really have to give up one for the other.  I think T.Gerhart would be a great short-yardage/3rd Down Specialist/Red Zone RB, whereas I believe that Blount maybe able to handle 200 rushes/yr or more similar to a LenDale White (before the Titans went exclusively to Chris Johnson).  But, as far as smarts go I would take Gerhart over Blount in a second, b/c Gerhart seems like he has grown up around the game b/c his dad was his HS coach & his brother also plays OC/OG @ Ariz. St.   Also, as far as Blount's mental makeup who knows when his anger-mgmt. issue comes back on the field, in the locker-room, on a crucial 3rd down etc... Gerhart you don't have to wonder about that, plus Gerhart did go to Stanford so putting in the extra time in the class-room & on the field shouldn't be an issue & also Gerhart was a good baseball player @ Stanford so he had classes, football, baseball, & working-out & was still able to function @ a high level in all facets.

    Toby Gerhart RB Stanford maybe is a 3rd-4th Rd draft Pick
    LeGarrette Blount RB Oregon 4th-5th Rd draft pick (just b/c of character/maturity/academic issues in college).

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

    A couple possible positives about Blount.

    1) He likely was humbled a great deal by his suspension, and likely grew up quite a bit because of it. That's the natural reaction to that sort of mistake and punishment.

    2) Sitting out most of this year means he's had a year to mature physically, while preserving his body from a year's beating.

    It still might be a coin toss, and perhaps interviews at the combine will tell the Pats brass a whole lot.

    But from the neck down, I think Blount is the better prospect.

    Re: LeGarrette Blount

       Blount clearly lost it but if you watch the clip closely the punk is seriously spouting off,  don't know what he said either.  I know it shouldn't matter,  control is control,  but I doubt it can be called an attack in any way.  And that dude has to be that guy that was a crumbled highlight film after verbally instigating.  Sorry,  but loved a lot of it.  Get him!
