Fournette won't be pampered in the NFL. I'm interested to see how he adapts.

Yep he was so pampered running on injuries in 2016 and averaging 25 carries a game with a trash passing game in 2015. Seriously I may be an LSU fan but I wouldn't associate in real life with some of you fake arse fans.

Funny how if LF played for Bama, people would be calling him "bust". But since he played for LSU, they defend him like he's their family. Tribalism is rampant. He's had a good run at the combine and let's see how he is in the pros. I think he'll be a solid NFL RB assuming healthy career.

He is 6'0 240 and ran a 4.51, McCaffrey is 5'11 202 and ran a 4.49 (his second attempt was 4.59). Now are we automatically supposed to call McCaffrey a bust? What about Dalvin Cook who ran a 4.50 at 210? Should we consider him a bust too? Will every player be a bust because people have something against them?

Notice he has his mouth closed and showing no visible strain whatsoever. This guy is the real deal!

This guy is going to bust big time like Trent Richardson. He was rode to death, injuries, disappeared in big games, prima Donna attitude, etc. Bank on it.

Remember he's had a bad ankle all year. That's a nagging injury.

I love how the guy is 15 lbs heavier than he should be, and instead of chastising this guy for not being in the premium shape.... he gets the ---- fast for his size. Well guess what, if he wasn't 15lbs heavier then he should be --- he would just be considered FAST ---- not fast for his size. Give me a 4.3 at 225lbs over a 4.51 at 240lbs.

Did they do a BMI test on him? If its 15 extra lbs of muscle I'd take that all day.

Not a single person ran a 4.3 at 225 pounds so what in the world are you talking about?

So, NFL defenses can practice by tackling bulls.

What nobody gets is that Fournette hits another gear when he gets to 40 yards that few possess.

It's good, but is it better than 225 lbs at 4.35?

And a basic flop in the NFL. He never hit the line tough. He always looked for a big hole even in short yards situation. LF will be there now & into the 2nd tier

4.4something would have really moved him up

Fournette looks disappointed with himself

I don't think he got quite the push off the blocks he was hoping for. A better start and he could be 4.48

Let the Guice vs LF go. Both are really good at what they do. Really good. It is like a boy's game of Twlight. Team vampire vs team wolf.
