Eddie Lacy slipping all the way to the Packers at No. 61 was qute the storyline at Friday's NFL draft. To no surprise, a lot was written about the running back and Green Bay's selection of him.

Quote:
“The Packers have tried to manufacture a running game with inferior personnel. They have no offensive balance, and they give Aaron Rodgers very little help. Part of the problem is an offensive line that doesn't run-block very well. Because opposing defenses don't respect the threat of the run game, they can sit back in deep coverages and take away Rodgers' vertical passing game. If Lacy can stay healthy, he can change that. He can be a physical, between-the-tackles runner, eat up the clock, especially in bad weather, and can give Rodgers a play-action package he hasn't had in a while.”


In other words, they don't want Aaron to stop constantly throwing deep, they want a solid RB to bring 8 into the box. So that Aaron can just continue throwing deep. lol

I am SO freaking stoked about this pick. Never thought we'd have a chance to take him. The big bruiser we needed. A punishing back that WILL HURT opposing defenses. Thank God! Finally! A legit starting power RB!!!! Holy crap!

This is going to be awesome for our effectiveness on offense, and for extending drives, keeping our defense off the field.

As happy as I am about the pick in general, the fact that we were able to trade down and still get this guy is unbelievable to me.

This special profile of Lacy's life is particularly enthralling.

What's wrong with throwing deep hahaha? This will enable Rodgers to complete MORE deep passes, as teams won't be able to cheat in coverage and virtually ignore the run with Lacey. I look forward to a lot of fireworks this season.

Geez - almost got me teary eyed there

Everyone should watch this - for the feel good story

My main concern with Lacy is how much of his running success was due to his OL blowing gaping holes in the defense, and how much to his own ability?

I'm also not convinced our running issues are due to our RBs. I think that scheme, coaching, and play calling are bigger issues.

In the playoff game against SF, we had an effective running game, until we abandoned it. And too many running plays out of the shotgun vs under center (the 18 yard TD run in the first half was from under center).

Lacy isn't going to help with those problems.
