According to a new report, there is concern within NFL circles regarding running back Leonard Fournette's passion for the game. Per Albert Breer of The MMQB, one present thought is that Fournette is "driven by stardom." Fournette was dominant when healthy and playing at LSU, especially in 2015 when he rushed for 1,953 yards and 22 touchdowns. He appeared in just seven games during the 2016 campaign due to injury, however, racking up 843 yards and eight touchdowns. Fournette's passion was called into question by some at the conclusion of the 2016 campaign when he opted to sit out LSU's bowl game in favor of preserving his health ahead of the NFL draft.
