Blount will be upset if Bucs draft RB-- Wed Apr 4 6:20 pm --
Top-ranked RB Trent Richardson could be selected by TB
A lot of mock drafts have the Buccaneers selecting Alabama running back Trent Richardson. How would this sit with current running back LeGarrette Blount? "I would not like that pick," Blount said at Nike's unveiling of the new NFL uniforms in New York City. "I would definitely not be happy with that pick." Blount stressed that he wants to be a feature back, and when asked about the possibility of taking on a Brandon Jacobs-like role, he expressed, in no uncertain terms that he wouldn't want to simply be a goal-line guy.

FF Today's Take:What the Bucs do with the fifth overall pick in the draft will have a direct impact on Blount's fantasy value heading into the 2012 season. If they choose not to select Trent Richardson - who analysts are hailing as the only truly elite back in this year's draft class - Blount remains a relevant middle of the pack starting running back. If they do opt to select Richardson or even David Wilson or Lamar Miller in the second round, Blount will likely receive fewer touches and a more limited role.
