“Fournette is an intimidating presence with an imposing, well-distributed frame.” –Rob Rang, @robrang (9/1/16)
Leonard Fournette embodies everything that an NFL team is looking for in a running back- ferocious running ability, with ability to pound it inside and bounce outside and shift into full speed quickly to turn out big plays whenever he has the ball. Truly elite combination of power and balance, and very difficult to bring down. Fournette is part of a recent resurgence in featured backs, just when that position was seeming to be going away. The only knock on Fournette is that he might too often rely on his athletic ability, foregoing proper fundamentals- something that would be expected and can be corrected. He needs 20 touches a game, and will need to show he can be effective in the passing game.
