There are lots of good athletes with crazy jumping ablilty in this league , and there's multiple reasons the majority of them don't use a high hurdle as thier go-to means of alluding tackles

1 . Leaving your feet puts you in an extremely dangerous and vulnerable position.
2. Although it looks cool if you pull it off , it's an extremely inefficient way of getting past a defender . Especially when you are doing it to avoid contact with a DB you out-weigh by 40 pounds.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

I'm sure you know better than a professional running back when it comes to running the football. Why wouldn't you? Seems legit.

i think the hurdle can be a dangerous weapon when used in certain situations.  im not sure this was one of them.   but i only saw it once on a choppy internet feed, maybe he had no other choice.

Hurdling used to be illegal at all levels, and still is at the high school level due to safety concerns. NFL changed the rule in the late seventies I believe.

Mark my words , eventually someone is going to be waiting on that hurdle , and Blount is either going to take a shot to the nuts he'll never forget , or dumped on his head. Either way , it won't be pretty .
