New Jaguars front office boss Tom Coughlin is an old-school football man, and his first pick was an old-school football pick.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected LSU running back Leonard Fournette fourth overall.
In today’s NFL, that’s a surprising move simply because running backs aren’t valued all that highly. Coughlin, however, likes what he sees in Fournette and wants to build a tough, physical offense.
Fournette is big, fast and a good north-south runner. The kind of runner Coughlin likes, and the kind of runner Coughlin hopes can change the fortunes of the Jaguars.
