Packers Draft Punishing Running Back In Round Two



Many NFL scouts and draft experts projected Alabama running back Eddie Lacy as a first round pick in this year’s NFL Draft. Nagging injuries throughout the powerful runner’s college career allowed the SEC back to fall to Green Bay at the end of the second round Friday night.

With the 61st overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft the Green Bay Packers selected Eddie Lacy. Packers and NFL Hall of Famer Dave Robinson made the announcement from the stage at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Numerous scouts say Lacy “runs angry” and “finishes runs.” The pick fills a desperate need for Green Bay with no proven running back on the 2013 roster. It is entirely possible Green Bay may resign Cedric Benson to another one year contract, but have not as of yet. James Starks, DuJuan Harris and Alex Green are likely the only runners that stand in the way of Lacy starting game one of the regular season.

“I couldn’t tell you why I slid so far,” Lacy said, “but at the end of the day, it is what it is and you can’t do anything about it. I’m just looking forward to being part of a new team and contributing.”

Badgers running back Montee Ball was selected in front of Lacey with the 58th overall selection. Ball was picked by the Denver Broncos.
