Grading the Big 5: Week 12 grade for LSU's Leonard Fournette


Editor's note: analysts and former NFL scouts Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah will grade the performances of 5 top prospects each week of the 2016 season. Click the tabs above to see their Week 12 marks for each of the players.

Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU


Stats: 12 carries for 40 yards (3.3 average). (vs. Florida)

Skinny: Fournette wasn't going to play on Saturday as he continues to deal with an ankle injury, but he changed his mind after a pregame scuffle with Florida players and coaches. I didn't love the fact that he pushed an opposing coach, but I do like the competitiveness he displayed to suit and play while injured. After studying the tape, it was obvious he was playing at less than 100 percent. He stopped his feet on contact a couple times and I've never seen a fully healthy Fournette fail to keep his feet driving. He fought for some tough yards, but there wasn't much room to operate against a stingy Gators defense. Overall, I give him credit for giving it a try, but Fournette didn't have much of an impact on the game for the Tigers.
