Adams, Fournette, Pocic speak about Pro Day and the upcoming National Football League draft

Doyle BarkerApr 07, 2017

"I know at the combine, 4.5 wasn't me".

RB Leonard Fournette should have ran his again after losing 12 pounds.

When an NFL Draft prospect is as good as Leonard Fournette, we tend to nitpick as analysts.

"I think some of them wanted me to just see if I could get down to that size", Fournette said.

If anyone in this year's National Football League draft is prepared for the pressure and expectations that come with being a top-10 pick, it's Jamal Adams.

"An NFC executive told NFL Media that LSU S Jamal Adams "[isn't] a game changer" and "isn't better than [Landon] Collins". It really doesn't matter. Fournette did not attempt to improve on his Combine 40-yard time of 4.51. "I definitely put my mind to it and I had a great outcome". "I wanted to show everybody that I can lose the weight".

The Tigers star running back's junior year was derailed due to ankle he suffered a team scrimmage in August, as he was unable to fully recover from the injury and would miss five games, including the LSU's Citrus Bowl win over Louisville. In three seasons at LSU, Fournette rushed over 100 yards 19 times and amassed 3,830 yards and 40 touchdowns in just 32 games. Say what you want about his final season at LSU, where he was still running for 6.53 yards per carry while hurt basically the whole season.

It's unclear how many drills Fournette will perform at his home base on Wednesday.

In all, 18 players participated in LSU pro day, including receivers Malachi Dupre and Travin Dural, linebacker Kendell Beckwith, cornerback Tre'Davious White, offensive lineman Ethan Pocic and defensive tackle Davon Godchaux.
