Steelers Film Room: The short distance power and long distance vision of LeGarrette Blount

A video breakdown of the newest Steelers running back, LeGarrette Blount.

The combined power and agility of LeBackfield - Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount - should help the Steelers optimize both their short-yardage success (including goal line packages) and their outside zone running scheme in the 2014 season.

We break down Blount's success in New England, highlighted by his 166-yard, four-touchdown performance against Indianapolis in the playoffs last season. He set a Patriots record with those four touchdowns, but he showed through four quarters how talented an all-around runner he is.

He showed great vision overall, with elements of power and speed at the goal line and outside the 20s. And the Patriots used him in a manner that befits his level of patience.

As we highlighted in the clips, he waits for the play to develop, and has the explosive speed to get through the hole and get up field.

Blount should compliment Bell well, and the Steelers should be able to implement a diverse and spontaneous rushing attack in 2014.
