The Jacksonville Jaguars have T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory on their roster. Ivory was their featured back last season.

But with Tom Coughlin taking over the reins of the team, they decided to use their first-round draft pick on another running back. With the fourth overall pick, the Jaguars selected Leonard Fournette.Leonard+Fournette+Florida+v+LSU+I6kQuT1XdEfx

Fournette gives the Jaguars a feature back for years to come. It also forces Coughlin to make a decision on Yeldon and Ivory.

He could potentially trade one of them this weekend.

The last time Coughlin drafted a running back with the Jaguars was Fred Taylor. He is their all-time rushing leader.

Fournette was one of the best running backs in the country when he was healty. He was dealing with injuries last season — and only played in seven games.

He had 843 rushing yards and eight touchdowns last season. He averaged 6.5 yards per carry.
