Draft Watch: Blount The Bruiser Pittsburgh Craves?

The Steelers, who may need to add depth at running back in this year’s draft, will host Oregon’s LeGarrette Blount for a visit next week. The 6-foot, 241-pounder has an intriguing blend of power and speed but he also comes with some baggage. Blount missed most of his senior season at Oregon due to a suspension handed down after he punched a Boise State player following the teams’ season opener. The Steelers have not ruled out re-signing Willie Parker, Colbert said, or getting help at running back from a young player such as Isaac Redman.
