Jacksonville Jaguars rookie running back Leonard Fournette unfazed by first NFL training camp - FirstCoastNews.com
Nothing seems to faze Jaguars rookie running back Leonard Fournette. On Tuesday, the fourth overall pick brushed off the notion he is facing a heavy transition as a rookie in the NFL. Fournette admitted to the media that he doesn't feel like a rookie.

The 22-year-old had a lot of high-profile experience prior to joining the Jaguars. He spent three seasons running wild against SEC defenses and set or tied 16 LSU school records.

Leonard Fournette may be an NFL player with a lot of money at his disposal right now, but he hasn’t always lived that kind of lifestyle.

In fact, as a kid, Fournette grew up in the 7th Ward of New Orleans, where crime rates were high, income was low, and Hurricane Katrina destroyed the lives of a countless number of families and civilians.

The Jaguars have lost 11 or more games for six straight seasons, and they’ve done it all without managing to secure the top pick in the draft even once during that stretch. At least when Cleveland loses, they go all out. By contrast, the Jaguars put on a cheap sheen of continuity and professionalism that renders them forgettable even when they’re steadily smashing records for hideous incompetence.
