Leonard Fournette not impressed with NFL speed after playing in SEC

He will probably be lucky to get 800 yards this year on 3.4 yards per carry...

Quote:
Rookies entering the NFL are warned constantly how fast the pro game is. Maybe we need to worry a little less about the SEC players entering the NFL.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, the fourth pick of the draft out of LSU, played his first preseason game on Thursday night. If you’ve ever bragged about “SEC Speed” before, just copy this quote and use it as your trump card from here on out:

“It’s a lot slower than I really thought,” Fournette told James Palmer of NFL.com. “That’s how I’ve been since I first got into the NFL. A lot of people were like, ‘It’s going to be fast.’ But by me playing in the SEC, that kind of helped me a lot. I think, to me, it was really easy.”

Classic case of a guy who should just not say anything. 1. It's preseason. 2. Even if the NFL game isn't as fast as you expect, don't put an unnecessary target on yourself as a rookie.

I could easily see him getting more than 800 yards.

Another LSU genius. Trust me Einstein, it'll be plenty fast in a month.
