Future Watch: Leonard Fournette Rookie Football Cards, Jaguars – Leonard Fournette was selected 4th overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2017 NFL Draft. At 6′-0″, 228 pounds he can revolutionize the position as far as where teams draft running backs. Many have stayed away from drafting the position so high but if Fournette has a breakout rookie season, the Jaguars will be giving some other teams the courage to follow their lead in the future.
The New Orleans, Louisiana native had the chance to star for his hometown college team at LSU. He was an All-American caliber player there. He was a Doak Walker Award finalist, showing he was one of the top backs in NCAA football. In his final year, which was interrupted with an ankle injury, he still managed to hit 4th all-time in yards in LSU history with 3,830. He was second in all-purpose yards (155.7 per game), 4th in rushing touchdowns with 40 and 3rd in overall TD’s with 42. Now he must try and replicate that in the pros.
Fournette has a great vertical leap. Something that players love to do but some coaches are hesitant in doing is watching a player jump over the line and into the end zone. He’s done that in training camp and his coach, Doug Marrone is fine with it. He’s looking to get touchdowns and this running back is very familiar with scoring them.
Leonard Fournette already has some great autographed rookie cards in the market. As a skill position player and top draft pick, collectors can be assured to find NFL licensed rookie cards of Fournette in the complete portfolio of 2017 Panini NFL football card products during the 2017-18 NFL season.
