On Tuesday, LSU held their pro day and the Tigers have no shortage of quality prospects that should find themselves selected early in the 2017 National Football League draft.
"They understood the situation I was in and they understood the injury and they respected it", Fournette said about his ankle injury.
Who knows how many drills Fournette will perform at his home skills day on Wednesday, but definitely doesn't have to improve his 40-yard dash time of 4.51 seconds at the combine, which was incredible for his size. "So I just wanted to show them I could stay on course and be disciplined and do what I have to do". I can play at the weight I want to. But it really doesn't matter.
Fournette decided not to run the 40 or go through any agility drills, such as the 3-cone drill or two-shuttle drill. Given time to develop, there's a chance Adams could prove to be the equal, if not better than, Collins at the next level. He ran a blazing 4.33 at the Pro Day compared to a 4.56 at the NFL Combine.
"I'm not going to say that it's too hard", Fournette said about his life recently. His 42 total touchdowns ranks third in LSU history and his average if 6.2 yards per carry ranks first.
Adams was a leader on one of the nation's stingiest defenses last season. He finished his LSU career with 209 tackles, including 17.5 tackles for losses, along with five interceptions and two sacks in 37 games.
