With the addition of rookie running back Doug Martin, Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com believes he’ll start over LaGarette Blount and it makes perfect sense because one could argue that Martin is already a better all around running back.
The great thing about Martin is that he already has the pass protection skills needed to succeed in the NFL coming right out of college. Not to mention he’s more versatile, where as Blount is more of a bruiser that pounds the defense.
I’m sure the Bucs will claim there will be an open competition, but I’d give the upper hand to Martin right now
