Buccaneers | LeGarrette Blount needs to prove himself

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB LeGarrette Blount won't have a lot of time to prove himself to the team's new coaching staff before the NFL Draft. Due to new league rules, the Buccaneers cannot begin their workout program until April 2. As a result, Blount will have less than a month to show the team's new coaching staff that he is capable of being trusted as a blocker and a receiver, allowing him to earn regular snaps on third down. In his first two seasons, Blount was not able to do enough to earn that role. There is speculation the Buccaneers could use their fifth pick on RB Trent Richardson (Alabama).
