LSU Star RB Leonard Fournette Doesn't Think The NFL Draft Should Lower Its Eligibility Rule

If there's a college football player who would be ready for the NFL after just two seasons in college, it might be Leonard Fournette. The LSU running back is a physical freak - 6-foot-1, 230 pounds, can run more than 20 MPH - and an incredible player. 

Fournette doesn't believe the NFL should change its rule that forces players to spend at least three years in college before declaring for the draft, though. 

He says while players might be physically ready, they're not mentally ready.

That's a very mature answer. Fournette is a likely future first-round pick.
