Lorenzo Neal (born December 27, 1970 in Hanford, California) is a Pro Bowl fullback in the National Football League. He played for Lemoore High School in Central California and Fresno State University. He was selected in the 1993 NFL Draft in the fourth round (89th overall) by the New Orleans Saints. Neal currently plays in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers. He has blocked for 1,000 yard rushers for 10 years in a row through 2006, first for Adrian Murrell of the New York Jets, then for Warrick Dunn of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, then for Eddie George of the Tennessee Titans and then for Corey Dillon (then) of the Cincinnati Bengals. He now blocks for LaDainian Tomlinson of the San Diego Chargers, and is considered to be the best blocking fullback in the league, and draws admiration from fellow fullbacks for his unselfishness, most notably Tony Richardson who once said in a NFL Films reel; "I'd like to think of myself as a pretty good player at fullback, but Lorenzo Neal is on a whole 'nother level".
