The hot topic in College Football on Wednesday morning was the discussion about LSU running back Leonard Fournette and if he should sit out next year to avoid risking an injury before the 2017 NFL Draft.

Les Miles was asked many questions about Fournette during Wednesday's SEC Coaches Teleconference and Alabama coach Nick Saban weighed in on the subject as well.

Saban wouldn't agree with this, but I'm of the opinion that Freshmen should be able to declare for the draft. It's a short term disadvantage when a team loses a great player, but it's not fair that they have to risk injury and shorten their playing career in the NFL.

To say that it means a team would win less championships in that case is bogus. Look how Calipari plugs and plays every year after a mass exodus.

I think Julios Draft stock went up because of the year he had as a junior. Julio was always going to be a first rounder based on his measurables alone, but the second half of 2010 he went beast mode and it boosted his stock.
