2013 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
What a single season it was! Lacy rushed for 1,322 yards on just 204 carries and scored 17 touchdowns on the ground. He chipped in a 22-189-2 line in the passing game.
Expected draft placement
Lacy has what it takes to be a three-down back in the NFL, which is a rarity in today's game. It is tough to tell just how teams value him because of his limited experience and the league's devaluation of the position, but Lacy could sneak into the middle of the first round with a strong workout once he is healthy.
Teams that may consider him include: Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 17), St. Louis Rams (No. 16, No. 22), Indianapolis Colts (No. 24), Green Bay Packers (No. 26), Atlanta Falcons (No. 30), Jacksonville Jaguars (No. 34), New York Jets (No. 41), Tennessee Titans (No. 42) and San Diego Chargers (No. 44).
