But a mostly flattering profile of Blount in The Oregonian says that at least one NFL scout was turned off by Blount’s workout schedule, saying that Blount should have showed up to both Pro Days.
“If there’s 30 days in a month and 30 teams want to work you out then you should be willing to workout every day,” said the unnamed scout, who added that Blount at least should have attended the first Pro Day to meet with NFL personnel, even if he wasn’t going to work out.
Blount reportedly ran a 4.56-second 40-yard dash at the Pro Day, shaving six-hundredths of a second off the time he recorded at last month’s scouting combine. Afterward he said he’s not worried about where, or whether, he’ll be drafted.
“I’m not really worried about getting drafted because I know for a fact that I’ll get a shot on somebody’s team, even as a free agent,” Blount said. “It’s lovely just having teams interested in me.”
