Summary

The Jaguars are looking like they are taking the same all-in approach with Leonard Fournette at running back this year as they did with Blake Bortles at quarterback in 2014. Fournette was the 4th Overall Pick in this year's NFL Draft and is ready to contribute at the NFL level immediately. In three years (31 games) at LSU, Fournette rushed for 3,830 yards, 40 touchdowns, and averaged 6.2 yards per carry. Jaguars General Manager Dave Caldwell says that the decision to use the fourth overall pick on running back Leonard Fournette was about making the Jaguars a better team immediately. "Leonard's a guy we think can come in and make an immediate impact, we're in a win now mode as we should be." Jacksonville's offensive line has been a question mark for some time now as no running back has averaged 4.0 yards per carry since 2011. As a team they only ran the ball 37 percent of the time in 2016 but that has a lot to do with the team being behind in games. The question on Fournette that everyone wants to know is if he is an NFL three-down-back. In 31 games at LSU he caught 40 passes but yet still managed to drop 8 passes. (May 22)
