Well, it's not the perception of NFL scouts, GM's, and coaches:

Can't people be happy for this guy. He doesn't owe LSU anything more than he's already given the university. There are no guarantees if he comes back--injuries, possibilities of lesser production, etc. If he came back for another year, what does he gain? I've said it before, I want every LSU foo...
