NFL Combine 2017: Leonard Fournette Tips Scales At 240 Pounds

Leonard Fournette, who is currently in Indianapolis for the 2017 NFL Combine, is one of the top running back prospects in this year’s draft.

He is also the heaviest.

During weigh-ins on Wednesday morning, the former LSU star tipped the scales at 240-pounds, which is five pounds heavier than he was officially listed at during his playing days with the Tigers.

That shouldn’t be a problem, however.

While Fournette is the heaviest running back in Indianapolis, he remains a freakish athlete who should blow scouts away with his performance during on-field drills.

Let’s also not forget that Fournette once ran a sub-4.0 40-yard dash in full pads during a game, so yeah, he’s pretty fast.

While Fournette won’t be able to match that time during the combine, he looks to be one of the fastest running backs in attendance. With good numbers at his size, Fournette, could finish the week as the undisputed No. 1 running back in the 2017 draft class.
