Draft Rewind 2013 – Eddie Lacy – Green Bay Packers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about EDDIE LACY: Alabama, 5110 231 4.60. Junior entry. One-year starter who ran behind the best offensive line in college football. Runs through gaping holes and gores defenders when he lowers his pad level. Slows to cut. Not a fluid runner. A physical one-cut downhill zone type runner with good body lean. Excels tackle to tackle. Thick and powerful build. Drives his legs on contact. Gets the tough two and three yard runs. Slams the ball up inside the seams. Light on his feet to avoid tacklers once through the line of scrimmage. Can see the cut back running lanes. Must be wrapped up. No shoulder or arm tackles will bring him down. Rushed for 181 yards versus Georgia in SEC championship game and 140 yards in the BCS game rotating with freshman TJ Yeldon. Has an injury history that includes knee problems, ankle sprains, turf toe, and pectoral muscle pulls among other nicks. Medicals like this make teams pause and question mental toughness. He did not work out at the Combine or Alabama’s first pro day. Will he play with pain? Can he take NFL caliber hits? How much practice time and games will he miss? Projects as a good backup until he proves he can stay healthy on Sundays. 2012 stats: 1322 yds, 6.5 ypc, 17 TD, 22 rec, 189 yds, 2 TD. Medical exclusion at Combine – left knee and right pectoral. Second/third round. (A-31, H-9 1/2, BP-DNP, SS-DNP).
