Leonard Fournette made his NFL debut on Thursday night as the Jacksonville Jaguars took on the New England Patriots.
Fournette, a former LSU star, rushed nine times for 31 yards an a touchdown.
After the game, he made a series of bold statements about the speed of the NFL. He spoke to James Palmer of NFL Network.
“It’s a lot slower than I really thought. That’s how I’ve been since I first got into the NFL. A lot of people were like, ‘It’s going to be fast.’ But by me playing in the SEC that kind of helped me a lot. I think to me it was really easy.”
