Some are saying Lacy will be gone before pick 20.

Lacy is the most overrated player in the list of possible first round prospects.. I would not want him over a back that can be had in the second. (barring a run on backs for some reason).

I'd rather Montee Ball in 2. I'd like Alec (sp) Ogletree in round 1 at 26.

We can get the steal of the draft and draft Lattimore in the 3rd round. He claims he will be ready for week 1

Just Imagine this for the next 6-9 years. What a ride it will be :)

I will be ready for training camp, I guess that makes me a steal for the first round, right?

From an ability standpoint, that'd be an amazing pick. Not often you get a talent like that after the first round or top of the 2nd.

Thing is, even though he might be ready in week 1, I fear his career might mirror that of a guy like Cadillac Williams.

I guess it's worth a shot when you're drafting at the end of the 3rd, but I wouldn't trade up for his services.

Doctors will decide whether Lattimore is even on the board. He certainly would've been the top running back if he were fully healthy.

I much rather see the Packers trade down and target Johnathan Franklin or Le'Veon Bell than select Lacy. Frankly, I rather see the Packers take Bell or Franklin in round one instead of Lacy.

Lacy would help the team, though. In fact, he would start. I obviously think you can do better, but I wouldn’t trash the pick were it to become a reality.

Lacy gets crap for playing behind a beast line but he also played against the best defenses. It's not like he was running all the way to the end zone untouched though, the guy broke a shit ton of tackles whether it was from LBs or DBs. I found a neat article discussing some of the top backs.

I like Franklin.

If Lattimore falls, I'd take a chance on him with a later pick. He's a tough dude who will work hard to come back strong.

When the Packers are bottom 10 in rush to pass ratio, you can call them pass-happy. I swear, some people won't be happy until we run it 70% of the time.
