National Football League draft prospects Bills should be watching at LSU pro day
Apr 19 2017
"Want to show everbody I could lose the weight". "So I definitely put my mind to it and I worked hard at it".
"I feel like that's what separates me from the pack, the other defensive guys in the draft", he said.
BATON ROUGE, La. - Leonard Fournette weighed in at 228 pounds Wednesday at LSU's pro timing day - 12 pounds lighter than when his "water weight" raised some eyebrows at the National Football League scouting combine last month. He doesn't really need to improve on his 40-yard dash time of 4.51 seconds at the combine, which also turned heads for the opposite reason, since that's an impressive time for someone of his size.
Adams, by contrast, had been disappointed in his combine time.
Fournette decided not to run the 40 or go through any agility drills, such as the 3-cone drill or two-shuttle drill. "I drank a lot of water before I weighed in, so it was water weight". Fournette has now shown that he has no problem getting his body to whatever weight is asked of him, and he believes he can perform to the "best of his ability" no matter what the numbers read on the scale. He cut, he changed direction well, he was happy. Crisp. His ankle to me looked like a 100 percent. "It was kind of a wow factor when he went through those bags".
"My mom's been on me about what I've been eating", Fournette said, via ESPN.
As for his kids, he's just trying to keep up with his fast growing daughter.
