Oregon RB LeGarrette Blount, who wasn’t present at the school’s pro day on Thursday, is scheduled to work out at a second pro day March 18, NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reported.
There was some confusion as to why Blount failed to show up for Oregon’s first pro day, but his agent, Ken Sarnoff, confirmed to La Canfora that the running back was supposed to participate in the second pro day all along.
That information apparently wasn’t well communicated, however, and not all the scouts in attendance at the pro day realized that Blount would work out next week, according to NFL.com’s Gil Brandt.
Blount is working hard to restore his reputation after two incidents in 2009. He was briefly suspended in February for reportedly missing offseason team meetings, then was benched for 10 games after he punched Boise State’s Byron Hout after Oregon’s season-opening loss.
Blount flashed some impressive skills at Senior Bowl practices in January, and he demonstrated great quickness at the NFL Scouting Combine two weeks ago, finishing third among all running backs in the three-cone drill. He also has spoken at length with the media and with teams about how contrite he is regarding his two incidents last year.
