Silly pipe dream I am sure. But Blounts issue is that he is most effective in open space, and takes to long to get up to speed. If he could be taught to catch a kick off I'd imagine he could be dangerous when given 10-15 yards of free space to get up to full speed. I know it will never happen, but an interesting concept to ponder and discuss, and the mock draft thread has really slowed down as of late.

Every time Free throws to anyone I cringe a little.

But I agree, while Blount;s hands are nowhere near as bad as people here make out, he's not going to be able to field those kicks.

You're going to catch some grief over this one.

Blount would be awful on returns, he is too slow and not elusive enough.

Rather have Mike Williams back there.

"Kick Returns....if Benn....Why not Blount?"

Neither Blount or Benn will be on the roster in 2013. Let's talk about players that matter.

Draft Aaron Donald

He can get a running start and hurdle them all?

No vision, no top end speed, fumbles.

As big as Blount is, I've never seen him knock someone out like that.
