Summary

The marginally bad news is that LeGarrette Blount will miss the season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The good news is that he can participate in training camp (so he won;t fall behind the team) and the Patriots didn't address the position in any big way during free agency or the draft. Blount seems to put up his best and most consistent numbers for head coach Bill Belichick, so we can expect to see him consistently this season. There aren't any real threats behind him, so as long as he stays out of trouble, he should be a solid starter. We don't see them using him enough to crack the 1,000 yard mark, but he should be worth a pick in the middle of your drafts. (May 17)
