The runs at roughly 3:40 and 4:30 are sick.
He can enjoy the same uni colors in college.
He's great and that line of his is impressive too
Best player in the nation by a long-shot.

Reminds me more of Eddie George.
I see this but think Leonard is an extremely more naturally gifted talent than George was. I haven't seen a back that has all the traits Leonard has so I tend to use multiple parts of backs to compare him to. My favorite is the combination of skills of our RB corps last year in Blue, Hilliard, Ford, Ware and Hill. Fournette has the length and natural athleticism of Blue, the power and hands of Ware, the vision and quick feet of Hilliard, the explosion of Ford and the just natural pure running ability of Hill. In essence, the perfect grouping of skills for a RB. He has it all. Much like AP, the only thing that can stop Leonard from being great is injury.
I love the way he helps his QB out. Several times the snap was muffled and he hesitated for a millisecond for the QB to pick it up off of the ground and hand it off. He is very football smart. He anticipates well. Eric Dickerson all over again. He just doesn't run quite as erect as Eric ran. Dickerson only played what four years in the league? Don't quite remember but he would be the all-time leader if he had played longer IMO.
My bad. Dickerson played ten years. Not sure where I came up with that!
