Packers selected Alabama RB Eddie Lacy with the No. 61 overall pick.
This pick was acquired from the 49ers in a trade down scenario. One league source informed Profootballtalk.com that Lacy’s slide arises from both injuries and a perception that he lacks the passion necessary to play pro football at a high level. Lacy (5-11, 231) replaced Trent Richardson as Alabama's feature back in 2012, holding off five-star recruit (and future first-rounder) T.J. Yeldon to rush for 1,322 yards and 17 touchdowns on 204 carries (6.48 YPC). Lacy made 35 career receptions. At his April 9 Pro Day -- delayed due to a hamstring injury -- Lacy ran a 4.57 forty-yard dash. Lacy is a violent, punishing runner with surprisingly light feet and lateral shake. He can create his own running room, rare for a big back. Lacy needs polish in the pass game and lacks ideal first-step burst, but he projects as a Jerome Bettis-like foundation runner with high-scoring potential. Fri, Apr 26, 2013 08:36:00 PM
