Is using a register chain feeding into a LFSR sufficient to generate “true random numbers” inside an FPGA?

One way to generate random numbers is to pseudo-random numbers. Otherwise, one would need a special mechanism to generate them using dedicated hardware. However, (For FPGAs specifically) why not just ...
