Unfortunately, I agree with Z2C on Lacy. I hope I'm wrong, but I've got a bad feeling about that pick for the reasons already articulated (injury prone, question on whether his running success was due to his own ability or his OL, his apparently lack-luster preparation for his own personal pro day). Hope Lacy takes offense at Florio's 'potential bust' comment...

Florio for PFT said:
Where they hit: Franklin fits perfectly with the West Coast offense, and he could become a star in that system...

Where they missed: There’s a reason Lacy was available late in round two. From chronic injury problems to a concern that he lacks true passion for football, Lacy has potential bust written all over him. While they needed running backs, Franklin fits. Lacy may not.

Let me try and warm some of you up to Lacy and I will admit I needed to come around on the pick but only a little.

In the four biggest games the Tide played last year which was LSU #5, Texas A&M in the only loss, Georgia in the SEC title game, and Notre Dame in the National Championship:

Lacy ran for 490+ yards with his lowest average per attempt at 5.9 yards against A&M.

He scored at least one TD in each of these games and was the SEC Championship Game MVP with 180 yards.

That was against Georgia who had umpteen defensive guys drafted. The Tide almost lost that game. Lacy pulled their fat out of the fryer. They don't win that game they don't play ND for the National Championship.

Not many guys even get to play in games like this let alone show up essentially every time and play that well. So yeah, I've kind of warmed up to the kid.

And here is the counter... Yeldon in those 4 games ran 67 times for 366 yards for a 5.5 yards per carry. So is it the backs or a dominate offensive line.. I can say because I watched both.. my opinion the line dominated against Georgia after wearing them down and crushed ND.

I have two concerns about Lacy. #1 is injury history. The boys are bigger and stronger in the NFL. #2 is he ran through massive holes created by one of (if not the) best O-lines in college football. Production may not translate.

That said him and Franklin are a huge upgrade to our current RB options. The fact both are great pass protectors makes their value even larger.


Huge injury history. Missed 1 game in 2 years.

So, its OK to roast Lacy for going soft in his Pro Day even though he was nursing a hammy? The same injury that Clay Matthews has fought through? He's a RB! His game is as much about speed as Matthews.

To me, Eddie Lacy was just being responsible. Smart.

"Strained hamstrings are unable to do their job as effectively, usually manifested as the need for a shorter stride length on the injured side. They are also prone to further, more serious injury. As a result, Lacy running on an injured hamstring would not only likely produce a slower 40 time, it could also do more damage to the muscle." http://m.bleacherreport....-lacys-injured-hamstring

Dude suffered ONE injury at Alabama, a foot injury in 2011 after rushing for 61 yds and a TD against Arkansas, sitting out the next game.

Played every game in 2012.

Huge injury history.

When did Eddie Lacy piss in your Cornflakes?

Jesus Christ!

And... Johnathan Franklin had 282 ATT 1734 YDS and 13 TDs

Lacy had 4 more TDs, a better average per carry in 80 fewer ATT. So Bama ran a lot. They were good at it. Who cares?

Seems like a lot of nit picking to me.

Richardson has done pretty well in the pro game so far.

There are scouts who think Lacy is better than Richardson. We shall see.

Eh, Lacy may bust or he may not. I dont think he will. He is undoubtedly a talented player. At the position he was drafted he is well worth the risk, imo. No doubt about it. He's going to bring some toughness to the Packers running game and will be able to split the pressure with J. Franklin. Boom or bust, maybe, but im glad Ted Thompson took the risk at the position Lacy was drafted.
