It was a good day to be a former LSU Tiger on Thursday.
Fournette was picked fourth by the Jaguars, making him the highest drafted running back from LSU since 1963.
“I’m very happy.” Fournette said of being drafted fourth, “The long process of traveling and seeing all these teams was tough on me. I’m glad I finally got my home, my new family. I’m ready to play now.”
When it comes to Jamal Adams, it’s a homecoming of sorts with his dad playing for the Giants and his mother from Yonkers. This has the safety excited to play for the New York Jets.
Tre’Davious White closed out the day for LSU, getting drafted by the Buffalo Bills at 27th overall. Heading into the day he had no expectations as to where he would be drafted.
This is the second most players taken in the first round for LSU and White makes it the 41st player taken in the first round.
