LeGarrette Blount fails to attend Oregon’s pro day?

Published on March 11, 2010 by     

l_blount_100228_blogLeGarrette Blount, a controversial running back who has been trying to restore his image, was a no-show at Oregon’s pro day Thursday.

Blount flashed some impressive skills at Senior Bowl practices in late January. He also showcased outstanding quickness at the NFL Scouting Combine two weeks ago, finishing third among all running backs in the three-cone drill. He measured at 6-foot and 241 pounds at the combine.

At both events, Blount was committed to showing NFL teams and the media that he isn’t a problem child after his reputation took two huge hits last year. First, he was suspended in February for reportedly missing offseason team meetings. Then he punched a Boise State player following Oregon’s Sept. 4 road loss.

The punch resulted in Blount being suspended for 10 games before he returned to play in Oregon’s final two contests. Blount was contrite while discussing the episode with the media at the combine, but choosing not to participate in Oregon’s pro day likely will prompt more questions.

Safety T.J. Ward also was absent, leaving just TE Ed Dickson among the top Oregon prospects to work out for 20 NFL team representatives indoors on FieldTurf.

Dickson (6-foot-4, 250 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.64 and 4.61 seconds, and he also had a 33-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 2-inch broad jump and 25 repetitions in the bench press at 225 pounds. He stood on his short-shuttle and three-cone drill times from the combine. He also ran positional drills.

UPDATE: Blount will be working out on March 18. His agent, Ken Sarnoff, confirmed to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora that the plan was for him to work out next Thursday all along, although not all scouts were clear on that fact.
