Only way this is good is if DuJuan Harris starts 1st and 2nd down and Eddie Lacy takes 3rd down. I'll add some highlights in the original post when I find'em.

Alex Green does not offer speed. DuJuan Harris offers speed. Randall Cobb does not offer speed either.

Eddie Lacy was passed over because all he did was run through big holes, like Mark Ingram, which, how has he done in the NFL? Lacy won't be much better.

Nobody but Barry Sanders could run the football effectively behind the Packers O-line.

Quote:
At 5-foot-11 and 230 pounds, Lacy has an “uncanny knack to get out of trouble” for a player his size, college scouting director Brian Gutekunst said.


Can you imagine that? A dude with vision, who doesn't always run into the back of his Oline? Who can actually ESCAPE from traffic?

Just awesome.

Packers just paid a guy 110 mil., not to run or hand off, but to throw the ball!!!!!

Smile

I actually like the pick, let's see where Ted goes from here.

Well I ain't a football genius but so far we drafted the two types of players I wanted: The hybrid DE with lateral agility and the bruiser back with great vision and reliable hands out of the backfield. We still have issues on the O-line and at Nose, but this is a start...

I don't think anyone is claiming to be a genius by giving their opinion, no worries of anyone labeling you like that lol

I'm just worried about what I seen. He runs through big holes, something the Packers I don't think can offer.

He does seem to have good vision though. It'll be exciting. Many experts are saying this was a great pick.



Added his bio to the original post.

This all of course remains to be seen.
This O-line can make anybody look, well, not so good.
And he will have to be able to escape traffic because he will see a lot of it.
thanks Post received 1 applause.

Love this pick! Hell, I wanted him in the first...

Teddy knew what he was doing when he traded down. He knew either Lacy or Ball would be there at 61. My guess is that we had both of them graded out about the same.

Eddie Lacy ... bad selection. He had HUGE holes with Alabama. He won't have that in Green Bay. I'd rather have seen a Safety selected. Someone who could contribute to the team.


We don't need safeties.

"Yet at his pre-draft workout April 11, Lacy looked like those fatigued linebackers running on empty. At one point, the 5-foot-11, 231-pound back needed to step outside the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility to catch his breath. The workout raised immediate red flags. This was, essentially, Lacy's job interview. And he looked tired, out of shape."

yeah I am a little concerned too. But some experts have him rated pretty high.
