With Ego in check, NFL not sure about "Freak"

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La - LSU has been a machine when it comes to feeding players to the NFL, most of those in recent years having come from the defensive side.  This year, the Tigers should have several defensive players get drafted, but the league is mixed on many of them, especially defensive linemen Ego Ferguson and Anthony "Freak" Johnson.

Ferguson gets a much higher grade from the Director of Operations for NFL Scouting Services than Johnson who was one of the most highly touted defensive linemen coming out of high school.  Thomas likens Johnson's play at LSU to an old Peggy Lee song, "Is That All There Is?"  Both Johnson and Ferguson are juniors who skipped their senior seasons to enter the NFL draft.
