It’s safe to say former LSU RB Leonard Fournette’s NFL debut is going well.
The Jacksonville Jaguars’ first-round pick (No. 4 overall) has looked sharp against the Houston Texans, running for 56 yards on 17 carries and adding three catches for 24 yards.
He also scored his first NFL touchdown on a short run in the second quarter, as you can see below:

The Jaguars took a surprising 19-0 lead into halftime, thanks in large part to Fournette’s strong play.
If he can continue playing like this in the coming weeks, he may start hearing his name more often in Rookie of the Year talks.
