Stats: With The Addition Of RB LeGarrette Blount, Steelers Don’t Stand To Lose Much

When looking at the stats that new Pittsburgh Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount put up last season with the New England Patriots, the first thing that pops out is his 5.05 yards per carry that he registered.

In 2013, there were 47 running backs that carried the football 100 or more times and as the sortable table below shows you, there were only four other running backs that had a higher yards per carry than Blount did.

Another great thing about Blount is that he had a low percentage of carries that went for zero or negative yardage. In fact, while he had 23 carries that resulted in zero or negative yardage it produced a 15% rate of all his carries and only six other running backs that logged a 100 or more carries last season had a lower percentage.

In our next post on Blount, we will have a look at his directional stats with the Patriots last season.
