After an iffy vertical, Leonard Fournette just shut down his critics big time Clippit/Screenshot

Leonard Fournette had a lot of critics going into the NFL Combine. Some people were still upset that he missed LSU’s bowl game, while others lamented him coming into the Combine at 240 pounds. After an unspectacular 28.5-inch vertical leap, that criticism grew.

Well, that criticism didn’t last two long, as Fournette blasted his critics right back by running a 4.51 in the 40-yard dash.

To put Fournette’s 40-number into context, it’s the best 40-time by a running back over 240 pounds in at least a decade.

Looks like Mr. Fournette won’t be dropping in the Draft to due any weight concerns after all.
