2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Eddie Lacy
There’s a reason why Eddie Lacy was a four-star recruit coming out of high school and his numbers from 2012 alone back it up. The fact that Lacy finished the 2012 season with 1,322 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns gives him the potential to become the next effective Alabama running back to make the jump to the NFL.
Even though this year’s class isn’t filled with many standout running backs like previous years, Lacy could be one of the best players at his position who could see a significant amount of playing time as a rookie. There’s no question Lacy is a workhorse when it comes to being a running back and it will be interesting to see what type of impact he has during his rookie season in 2013.
If last year is any indication of what to expect, Lacy is the type of player that is only going to get better and better with experience. Alabama has seen their fair share of successful running backs in the NFL–so it will be interesting to see where he lands next week when the 2013 NFL Draft gets under way.
Even if he isn’t selected in the first round, Lacy will certainly be one of the top running backs to keep an eye on once the second round gets under way. With the amount of teams that are starting to use the two-back system, Lacy could certainly have an impact during his rookie season in 2013.
