One preseason game into his career, Leonard Fournette sees the NFL as a much easier transition than expected.
"It's a lot slower than I really thought," Fournette said. "That's how I've been since I first got into the NFL. A lot of people were like, 'It's going to be fast.' But by me playing in the SEC, that kind of helped me a lot.
"I think, to me, it was really easy."
The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the New England Patriots 31-24 on Thursday night. The fourth overall pick rushed for 31 yards on nine carries and scored on a 1-yard touchdown run.
"I've had pressure my whole life," Fournette said. "I'm built for it. No matter what the circumstances, I've never let the game get bigger than me and I've always stayed humble. That's No. 1."
