LSU's Leonard Fournette has rejected suggestions he sit out his junior seasons in college to ensure he enters the NFL injury-free.
Jadeveon Clowney was given similar advice before his junior season.
Marshall Faulk believes Fournette should stay on Clowney's three-year path.
"I'm telling you, sitting out, it takes a while to get you back into the speed of things," Faulk told The Dan Le Batard Show. "Just watch. Adrian Peterson, he sat out last year, he's going to have good game-bad game, good game-bad game. You saw him put the ball on the turf a couple times Sunday. You need the reps. I hope that LSU is smart about how they use him. He pretty much has no quarterback. He has no quarterback in the sense of a guy that can really throw the ball down the field to take some of the pressure off of him. I see that they're kind of shrinking his carries, but he's a workhorse, bell-cow kind of guy. He will be the first running back or the first player taken when he does come out, though."
