2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about LEONARD FOURNETTE: LSU, 6004 240 4.52. Junior entry with 24 starts over three years. From New Orleans, LA. The freight train power back came down to earth in 2016 after his 2015 All-America season. He played with an ankle problem most of the year. His rare combination of size, strength, and speed are coveted by many power NFL teams. When he is rolling downhill picking up momentum he will shred tacklers with his pad level and balance. The physical runner has the ability to create yards after contact and is a punishing finisher. Dangerous and tough in the open field. Can run away from defensive backs in space. Makes most of his dynamic runs when there are big holes. Reliable hands out of the backfield, protects the ball and is a competitive blocker. Will enter the league with damaged tires. Missed five games in 2016 due to nagging ankle injuries. Often found limping off the field. Slow to react to closed running lanes. Generally gets what’s blocked. Needs more patience and vision. Running against loaded boxes behind a below average offensive line, his 2016 did not go well to say the least. Has freakish tools and ability, but there are questions revolving around his skill set, quickness, and passion for the game in addition to the lower body injuries. His size and speed will be NFL ready week one, but there is a large gap between his floor and ceiling. Risky prospect from a few different angles. One must question Fournette’s attitude when he opted not to play in LSU’s bowl game to prepare for the Combine and then only competed in the 40-yard dash and vertical jump. 2016 stats: 843 yds, 6.5 ypc. 8 TD, 15 rec, 146 yds, 9.7 ypr, 0 TD. OSR:11/30. First round. (A-31 5/8, H-9 1/4, BP-DNP, SS-DNP).
