All Business, Undrafted Joey Blount Follows Assistant Coach's Footsteps Making Seahawks Roster

RENTON, Wash. – Throughout the course of his entire football career, Joey Blount has been an underdog. Whether being lightly recruited out of Landmark Christian High School or bypassed completely in the pre-draft process last spring, he’s used to being overlooked and counted out.

Over the past five years, few defenders equaled Blount’s production starring at Virginia. Playing snaps at free and strong safety as a jack of all trades, he racked up 303 combined tackles, nine interceptions, 5.5 sacks, and 19 tackles for loss, stuffing the stat sheet in one of college football’s premier conferences. Based on those numbers, he seemed destined to be an NFL draft pick.
