Fournette expects to enter training camp at 224 pounds, which is 11 pounds lighter than he was last season, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports. "I feel like I play my best at that weight -- 223, 224 -- that's what I played in college," the second-year running back said. "Why not? I don't want to be average. I want to be above average, be the greatest one to play this game. I feel lighter, quicker and I have a lot of my burst."

2017

Ankle injuries limited Fournette to seven games in his final season at LSU but didn't cost him on draft day, as the Jaguars pounced on him with the fourth overall pick to be their new lead running back. At 6-1, 235, he's a dominant physical runner who terrorized college defenses with his combination of speed and burst, not to mention the willingness, even the desire, to run over and through would-be tacklers. Fournette does have a little finesse to his game, showing good balance in traffic and some receiving skill, but his angry, downhill style is best suited for a running game designed to wear down the opposition over four quarters. Such a scheme would be a departure for a Jacksonville offense that previously was built around Blake Bortles, but head coach Doug Marrone and new executive VP Tom Coughlin both prefer an old-school, smash-mouth style, so such a change wouldn't be surprising. If there's one concern with Fournette it's his ability to hold up under the punishment his running style exacts over a 16-game NFL schedule, but he'll head into camp fully recovered from last year's ankle woes. Even with T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory still on the roster to share the carries, Fournette is expected to see a heavy workload right away to justify his draft slot, and he could emerge as the league's next true bell cow.
