05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Texans' picks: Round 6/181 - Alfred Blue, RB, 6-2, 223, Louisiana State...Started 13 games in college. Suffered major knee injury that ended junior year and started two games as a senior. Tall back who makes an inviting target. To make the team as the third back, he'll have to play special teams. - The Sports Xchange

05/07/2014 - 2014 NFL Draft: 126 FBS programs, 126 possible UDFAs: LSU: RB Alfred Blue (6-2, 223, 4.63)...Stuck on a crowded running back depth chart at LSU, Blue played more of a reserve role in college, but has the all-around skill-set to be a reliable option at the next level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

09/12/2013 - Scouting the LSU running game: The Tigers have had so much success with their new-found passing game that the running game has faded to the background a bit during the first two games. But that doesn't mean LSU won't lean on the run going forward. Coach Les Miles' disciplining of Jeremy Hill for a second run-in with the law expired when Miles played Hill against UAB last week, so Hill figures to have a more prominent role from here on out. Alfred Blue remains the starter for now but look for he and Hill to split the position and Kenny Hilliard and Terrence Magee to fight for the remaining carries. - The Sports Xchange

08/31/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: RB Alfred Blue emerged from a crowded and talented backfield to be the starter going into last season and seemed poised for a standout year before suffering a season-ending knee injury in the third game. He was held out of contact work in the spring, but was full-go in preseason camp. Miles said he looks like the same back he was before the injury and Cameron's affinity for passing to running backs could make Blue an even more important weapon. - The Sports Xchange

08/26/2013 - 2013 PRESEASON ALL-SEC THIRD TEAM (COACHES): RB - Alfred Blue, LSU,...Got off to a great start last season before suffering season-ending knee injury against Idaho in week 3 ... At the time of his injury, he ranked No. 2 in the SEC in rushing yards with 224 for a 112.0 per game average ... Opened season with back-to-back 100-yard games, going for 123 yards in opener vs. North Texas and followed that with 101 yards and one TD vs. Washington ... Rushed for 46 yards and a score vs. Idaho before the injury. - LSU football

08/21/2013 - OTHER LSU PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: RB Alfred Blue (6-1, 220, 4.59)...In rushing for over 100 yards in both of LSU's first two games of 2012, Blue looked poised to emerge as the Tigers' top back last season. Unfortunately, he suffered a torn ACL against Idaho and missed the rest of the year. He's been back on the practice field for the Tigers this summer and looks well on his way towards re-establishing himself as a feature back in this offense. Blue has run for 910 yards and 10 scores in 27 career games (including five starts). While sporting a taller, leaner frame than most scouts prefer, Blue is quick to the hole, weaves around defenders nicely and plays with surprising power. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
