Leonard Fournette has been preparing for his NFL debut since he was a kid.
Pegged for stardom at a young age due to his combination of size, power, speed, and agility, Fournette had as much hype as any player in the nation when he announced he would attend Louisiana State University in 2014.
Fournette was the top-rated prospect in the country after rushing for over 7,500 yards during his high school career, making the All-American team, and winning Louisiana's Mr. Football award in 2013. Fournette continued to play up to those high expectations at LSU, rushing for 3,830 yards and 40 touchdowns in just three seasons.
Now, as a top-five draft pick for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Fournette has sky-high expectations again—but he’s more than ready.
“I’m excited to compete,” Fournette told Men’s Fitness. “We have a lot of talent on this team, and I’m ready to do whatever the team needs me to do to help us win.”
Fournette has proven to be one of the strongest running backs to come out of the draft in recent memory. Here are 11 workout posts to prove it.
