Jaguars selected LSU RB Leonard Fournette with the No. 4 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.
Needing to upgrade their running game to help embattled starter Blake Bortles, the Jaguars have been linked with Fournette for most of the pre-draft process. Standing 6-foot-1, 240 pounds, Fournette arrived in Baton Rouge as the nation’s No. 1 recruit and met expectations with a career 616-3,830-40 (6.22 YPC) rushing line, turning pro as LSU’s all-time leader in yards per carry and No. 2 in yards from scrimmage per game (155.7). A hulking downhill runner with 4.51 speed, Fournette’s limitations come in the passing game, where he dropped 8-of-48 catchable targets as a Tiger. He also battled a recurring left ankle injury in 2016, suffering repeated setbacks and missing 6-of-13 games. When healthy, Fournette has drawn comparisons to Bo Jackson and Herschel Walker as a size-speed freak. His arrival is bad news for Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon with Ivory projecting to take the biggest hit. Apr 27 - 8:43 PM
