Former NFL quarterback and current College Football analyst Brock Huard was able to get an up-close and personal look at LSU running back on Saturday and called him the next Marshawn Lynch. Per NOLA.com:
quote:

"(Fournette) is the next Marshawn Lynch," former NFL quarterback Brock Huard said during the ESPN broadcast. "With that level of physicality."

The former Seattle and Indianapolis Colts passer explained that several college running backs have pointed to Lynch, nicknamed "Beastmode," as the professional they emulate, saying they "want to be the next" Lynch.
Who reminds you of Fournette the most?

I don't remember Lynch being at LF's level in college. The only reason it's a Lynch comparison, and not Bo/AP, is because LF is still in college. Lynch is no where near LF, Bo, or AP.

"Fournette doesn't deserve that comparison"

Not saying he has reached that level. Saying they look alike in the way that they run. Watch some highlights of Dickerson and then watch Fournette. There are definite similarities.

Placebeaux, you are 100% correct.

#7 is already better than Lynch on the field and is way better than Lynch off the field.

Should be phrased, "Who reminds you of Fournette the most."

Scratch the Earl Campbell thing. Got my legends mixed up. Eric Dickerson is the name I couldn't grab.

Except Fournette has a brain in his head

Disagree whole-heartedly. Fournette looks like Earl Campbell running around out there. Probably the best comparison there is.

No offense to Lynch, but I think Fournette will be on a much different level than Lynch.

Fournette reminds me of Fournette the most.

I dont care who he emulates or reminds me of.

He is a Louisiana boy who is proud of where he is from, and plays hard for his team/state.
