Fournette and Saints rendevous

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'd draft him in a heartbeat. Most likely he will be going to the Panthers at 8 thou and rush for 1200yds/year average for the next 10 years....

If we take a RB it will be Big Mac at #32

I honestly cannot believe any true Saints fan would want him for any reason other than the fact he played for LSU

Something to entertain, LSU RB's have had some success in Black and Gold:

Hokie: Through 2015, he remains one of 19 NFL running backs to exceed six yards per carry in a (100 or more attempt) season.

Hilliard's most productive season came in 1989 when he rushed for 1,262 yards and scored 18 touchdowns.

Is LF better? Tea leaves are saying yes. Not really close. If he is there and you want to take a calculated gamble not a bad choice. We have certainly made worse choices. Won't help our D unless he keeps them off the field and keeps us from settling for FG's. It's the injuries though. Man has taken a severe beaten already. I do not believe he will last that long with his style. Fun to watch but long term looking like a flash in the pan.

Re: Fournette and Saints rendevous

Losing Hightower may force us to draft a back earlier than we wanted to ensure that we get a productive runner.

Re: Fournette and Saints rendevous

A back with his style would take a lot of pressure off a young QB if we go to one in the next few years. I would love to have him but we have too many defensive needs.
