Photo: Leonard Fournette unveils his Jacksonville Jaguars jersey number
Leonard Fournette has shed his Tiger stripes for Jaguar spots after being selected by Jacksonville with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. The former LSU running back is changing more than his jersey, though, as NFL rules prohibit backs from wearing single digit numbers. So, the No. 7 jersey is no more for Fournette.
Instead, Jacksonville’s new running back will wear No. 27 next season for the Jaguars. Check out Fournette holding his first ever official Jacksonville jersey Friday during the team’s press conference celebrating his draft selection.
