If it is a slight drag; no problem. However, if the rotor is getting excessively hot, I believe you have a worn brake calipher. As your old brake pads wore the pad decreased in diameter. Hydraulic fluid ( with picks up moisture and causes rust internally)took up the space within the calipher. Now that you have installed new pads the piston in the calipher has been pushed back over a corroded calipher cylinder so resistance has occured and the brake will not fully release.

What would make the brakes lock up in a 1996 Chevy blazer when going low speeds of 15-30 mph. could they be over adjusted or calipers.?

I have had the same problem on my 1996 Blazer. I talked to a bus driver about it and was given this little trick that might help. If it has something to do with brake adjustment, try backing up and slamming on the brakes 4-5 times- sometimes the brakes adjust themselves from us using them in only one direction so much.
