LSU star running back Leonard Fournette's weight was a topic of concern at the NFL Scouting Combine last month until the 6-foot, 240-pound running back posted a 4.51-second 40-yard dash in Indianapolis. After showing up to the combine at 240 pounds, Leonard Fournette weighed in at 228 pounds Wednesday at his pro day.
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.
Adams performed well in front of the likes of Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, Lions head coach Jim Caldwell, Titans head coach Mike Mularkey, Jets head coach Todd Bowles, and general mangers Jerry Reese of the Giants and Jon Robinson of the Titans.
"Some of them wanted me to just see if I could get down to that size", Fournette said.More news: Alexis Sanchez's agent holding talks with PSG about potential move
After what we saw from Ezekiel Elliott a year ago in Dallas, it wouldn't surprise me to see a team make a move up for Fournette. Fournette did not attempt to improve on his Combine 40-yard time of 4.51. I'm going to play good any way I want to.
With the NFL Draft approaching in a little over three weeks, one of the draft's top safeties, Jamal Adams, improved some of his combine numbers, especially his 40 time. Despite the injury, he finished his 32-game Tigers career fourth all-time at LSU in yards rushing with 3,830.
In all, 18 players participated in LSU pro day, including receivers Malachi Dupre and Travin Dural, linebacker Kendell Beckwith, cornerback Tre'Davious White, offensive lineman Ethan Pocic and defensive tackle Davon Godchaux.
