The San Francisco 49ers are “seriously considering” drafting LSU running back Leonard Fournette with the No. 2 pick, according to Tony Pauline.
“The new front office wants a bigger back to run the offense,” Pauline writes, “and they’re ready to give up on Carlos Hyde, who has had his struggles staying healthy since being drafted by the franchise in 2014.”
Four questions for you:
- Do you think the Niners are trying to get a team to trade up with them for Fournette?
- Do you think Fournette would be a good pick for the 49ers?
- Do you think Fournette would fit Kyle Shanahan’s outside zone running scheme?
- How many wins do you think Fournette would add to the 49ers in 2017?
