Leonard Fournette’s Scouting Report

Fournette is the perfect combination of size and speed, which is a rare commodity at running back these days. He has great vision and is explosive once he finds an opening to attack. The LSU back is not scared of contact either, he’s not afraid to go up against a linebacker in the open field or use his agility to get around a corner. He’s can make a defender miss just like he can run one over.  Fournette has areas he needs to improve in though. He needs to get better at protecting the quarterback in passing situations and he also needs to prove that he’s capable of catching passes out of the backfield.

Strengths

  • Great size for his position.
  • Elite speed and quickness.  He hits the hole in a hurry and has the speed to break away in the open field.
  • Very powerful runner.

  • He’s durable.
  • Good third-down back.
  • Face of a franchise type player.
  • Plays hard on every play.

Weaknesses

  • Needs to improve his pass blocking
  • Needs to improve his passing game
