Overview:

Forunette was LSU’s workhorse back, he has over 600 carries, for over 3800 yards, and was a scoring machine, racking up 40 rushing touchdowns. He attacks the holes, he is a bulldozer of a back, and has great size, good speed, & is a good pass catching back. He does tend to get stuffed at the line of scrimmage, as well as not being the best pass catching back, and he does struggle against top level defenses. Among those, he has also had injury concerns at LSU. But Fournette should be picked somewhere in the top 15.
