re: Just for comparison's sake, what recent college running back doesLeonard
Not sure how serious some of these answers are but I do agree with a few of them.

Herschel Walker-he is very similar to Walker but the part that really sets it off is the hands. Walker had great hands

Adrian Peterson-he's the closest thing since. Hopefully he's not as fragile as Peterson has been though

Mix of Blue,Ware, Hilliard, Hill, Ford-actually the best way to break it down imo. Has the ranginess and hands of Blue, the bulk of Hilliard, Hill and Ware, vision like Hilliard but better, the speed and body type of Ford.

He's the complete package and now everyone is starting to realize it. Was always curious what analysts would say once his cycle came upon us and it's going better than I thought. They've been looking for flaws for 2 years and now that his cycle is upon us they have no choice but to give him his due. He's a rare RB talent. That really means something with all the talented RBs that have been coming through the hs system the past few years. Many talented and special kids but Fournette is above them all.

I'm sorry, but you need to calm the frick down. Iv seen the kid play. He's damn good, but damn. He ain't Bo Jackson. AP is close.

There's not much separating Bo from AP. Bo was a better all around athlete, but as a RB I'd give Bo and take AP or the other way around.

Legends take on a life of their own, and so it goes with Bo Jackson. Reality is more mundane, though, and I remember Bo quitting against the Longhorns. That cost Auburn the NC.

As an athlete, though, Bo and Hershel still stand alone, which is peculiar in that they were almost contemporaries.
