I personally think many of the guys leaving didn't play to their full potential this season because they already made up their mind to enter the draft before the season started, except Minter and Logan. Those two played their way into the draft and should go after such stellar years.
This is what I agree with. Some of those that are leaving early clearly did not play up to their potentual, because they did not want to put themselves at risk. Like Sam Montgumery, did not play to the level he had set in previous years and I believe it was because, of not wanting to risk getting hurt, his mind was already made up and his stock took a big hit. I wish them all the best, the more that go to the NFL helps recruiting, unless of course, they leave for a different reason.
What some of them do not realize is, if they do not play at Game speed, it puts them more so at risk than if they had just said to themselves,"to heck with it" and say, "what happens, happens," then play to the level they have played all along and are known for. I do not like to see Talent waisted because of being scared for selfish reasons.
To me the Coaches need to step in and say, "either Play ball or pack it in now and let us play someone who really wants to play." That is the Coaches job to make sure that they do not allow that to happen. LSU should not have lost to Bama and the Game with Clemson maybe would never have happened. I feel the loss at Florida was lack of intensity.
