Freakish junior running back Leonard Fournette is arguably the elite talent in all of college football so it goes without saying that he is going to dominate the coverage involving LSU football this season.
But the Tigers boast another likely top-10 pick on defense in fellow junior Jamal Adams, an instinctive and hard-hitting safety already drawing comparisons by some close to the program to former LSU (and current NFL star) Tyrann Mathieu.
And while earning comparisons to the great Honey Badger is quite the compliment, frankly, it isn’t enough.

Whereas Mathieu’s repeated failed drug tests led to his suspension from LSU and his slip on draft day, the folks at LSU can’t speak highly enough about Adams, who was the first player of the Les Miles era to ever be named a team captain for a game (Louisiana-Monroe) as a true freshman.
