Leonard Fournette 12 Pounds Lighter at Pro Day

Running back Leonard Fournette is lighter. "So I definitely put my mind to it and I worked hard at it".

"I plan to be a hall of famer at the end of the day", says Adams.

Fournette said National Football League teams wanted to see him lose weight and had been asked about a nagging ankle injury from the 2016 season.

According to Mike Mayock of the NFL Network, LSU safety Jamal Adams ran his 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds.

Other than his weigh in, Fournette did a variety of agility drills and demonstrated his ability in the passing game by running a variety of routes out of the backfield or lined up as a receiver. They said at the next level it's different.

The clocks on campus were showing a 4.33 time for Adams but there's traditionally some home-cooking involved at every pro day, and the only real "official" times are the ones the teams themselves harvest and keep for their own uses.

ESPN's Mark Triplett reported Wednesday that Fournette wanted to show teams that he could drop the weight. He told reporters that he "wanted to show everyone I could lose weight when it comes down to business" and that his mom was one of the key factors in his weight loss, staying on him every day to make it happen.

Dupre, a 6-foot-2, 192-pound receiver who had 41 catches for 593 yards and three touchdowns in 2016, will be visited at LSU by the Panthers this month.

Adams was a leader on one of the nation's stingiest defenses last season.
