Leonard Fournette will declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.

Bothersome ankle sprains hampered Fournette's production throughout his junior season. 

LSU received a bid to the Citrus Bowl Sunday, where the Tigers will face Louisville on New Year's Eve. LSU coach Ed Orgeron said Fournette wants to play in the game, but his playing status is "day to day" due to his ankle injury.

RealGM's Jeff Risdon lists Fournette as the fourth best projected running back available in the draft.
