Since his freshman year, Leonard Fournette has been a future NFL player. His size, speed, power, and playmaking ability are something you find every few years.
The Jets have an abundance of running backs on this roster, and it isn’t likely they’re going to ditch any this offseason. By drafting Fournette, New York may be pointing towards the end of Matt Forte’s career.
Fournette needs to stay healthy in order to succeed the way he’s able too. His potential is sky high, but everyone knows it isn’t certain he’ll ever last a full season. He’s dealt with a lot of injuries in college, and that doesn’t always transfer well into the NFL. It’s sad to say, but he’s a hit-or-miss due to his inability to stay on the field.
If he does stay healthy, he has everything needed to be the next great running back in the NFL. We all watched Ezekiel Elliot do it this year, and we all know Fournette has everything he needs to do it next year.
