All Business, Undrafted Joey Blount follows in the assistant coach’s footsteps and creates the Seahawks roster

RENTON, Wash. — Throughout his football career, Joey Blount has been an underdog. Whether he was recklessly recruited by Landmark Christian High School or completely bypassed in last spring’s preliminary draft process, he’s used to being overlooked and counted out.

In the past five years, few defensemen have matched Blount’s performance with Virginia. A jack of all trades, he snapped at free and strong safety, accumulated 303 combined tackles, nine interceptions, 5.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss, and topped the stats list in one of college football’s premier conferences. Based on those numbers, he appeared destined to be an NFL draft pick.
