RSP Boiler Room No.54: RB Leonard Fournette (LSU)


Matt Waldman of the Rookie Scouting Portfolio examines Running Back Leonard Fournette's 2017 NFL potential

One thing is indisputable about Fournette: He wants to impose his will on every opponent in his path. 

When I get lost in a daydream, and that daydream is about football, one of my football fantasies is to accelerate through an opponent and leave him in my wake like a stray bowling pin flying from the collision.

This is Leonard Fournette’s reality several times a year.

Well-harnessed aggression is a vital part of good football. Fournette’s desire to impose his will on opponents is an admirable and coveted quality.

Even so, it will require a measure of maturity and wisdom from him when he tries to impose it in the NFL.

I have no doubt Fournette will learn these small lessons and deliver even bigger ones to defensive backs in the open field on Sundays.

What will matter most with Fournette’s NFL future is his fit with the offense that drafts him. If it’s a good one, he could approach the lofty expectations of his fanboys. If it isn’t, he could be a source of debate for years to come.

More on that point later.
