NFL Draft rumors: Jamal Adams runs blazing 40-yard dash

If there was any concern surrounding Fournette's weight at the next level, the Tigers running back put it to rest at LSU's pro day on Wednesday. He didn't do that, running a 4.56 40 at the 2017 NFL Scouting combine.

Jamal Adams had the biggest moment of the day when he ran an unofficial 4.33 40 yard dash on his first and only run.

"I definitely feel like I did have something to prove for myself in the 40", Adams said.

His father George was a first-round selection by the Giants in 1985, and his alma mater LSU has an unparalleled reputation for churning out NFL-ready players, especially defensive backs.

Leonard Fournette came into his LSU pro day weighing in at 228 pounds Wednesday, 12 pounds lighter than when his "water weight" was a big question at the National Football League scouting combine last month.

Hindus will witness decline in births between 2055-2060: Pew
Between 2010 and 2015, 33 percent of babies were born to Christians, who made up 31 percent of the world's population in 2015. By 2035, estimates suggest there will be 225 million babies born to Muslims while only 224 million born to Christians.

"I just wanted to show everybody that I can lose the weight" Fournette said when asked about his weight loss. It really doesn't matter. "He's a good player but I don't think he's a game changer".

Fournette says he is fully healthy after a season in which he was hampered by a lingering ankle injury.

Dupre, a 6-foot-2, 192-pound receiver who had 41 catches for 593 yards and three touchdowns in 2016, will be visited at LSU by the Panthers this month.

Running back Leonard Fournette runs through drills during their LSU's pro day in Baton Rouge, La., Wednesday, April 5, 2017. He posted seven interceptions in his one season starting with the Buckeyes, and any concerns over his limited experience in the Ohio State secondary can be answered by the game tape, which shows outstanding ball skills.
