Following a draft that featured a Rhodes Scholar, a math whiz and an Ivy Leaguer, the Titans added a more controversial figure with the addition of undrafted rookie running back LeGarrette Blount from Oregon.
As Jim Wyatt points out, Blount is best known for a postgame punch of a Boise State player and the resulting suspension. He’d been suspended from the team before.
Blount initially agreed to terms with San Francisco, but changed his mind.
I have no issue with the team adding Blount. I’m certain they’ve spelled out their expectations for him and any signs of trouble will result in a quick release.
Among the Titans' other undrafted rookies is Stafon Johnson, the USC runner who suffered a serious throat injury in a weightlifting accident last year.
Scouts Inc. gave Blount a 59 grade, judging him an "adequate prospect." Johnson got a 33, which means a "borderline draft prospect."
