Default Stop with the Eddie Lacy talk.

No way in hell do i want him. He is a product of Alabama's Oline and great offense. Slow slow and did i say slow. Here come come a tackler wonder what Lacy is gona Hmmmm spin that's it. He may turn into a decent back but not a home run hitter.

Bernard and his ACL history is enough for me to stay away. I'd prefer someone with no major injury history with upside.

History? Acl in 2010 is all i have heard of. It happens and wasn't as bad as many that have played well after. He has been top notch since.

Eddie Lacy has been clocked anywhere from running a 4.44 to a 4.53 40 yard dash. That is far from being slow.

Your boy Giovanni Bernard anywhere from 4.48 - 4.57 40 yard dash.

To say he is slow is false. He isnt the fastest runner in the RB class, but he sure as hell isnt the slowest.

Never said the slowest but doesn't take off like he should, takes forever to get going. He has had a 40 time of 4.48 to 4.64 we will find out at the combline but from just watching he doesn't look like a home run hitter. 40 times http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...2014&genpos=RB

Yeah Bernard is definitely more quick than FAST.

I think Lacy will run around the 4.5 range at the combine.

You know why Alabama has a great offense?

Because they have great players... Like Eddie Lacy.

Genius.

It's really no point to try and discuss logic with him. His mom will have him doing chores before to long plus it's got to be close to his bed time.

You're right. Eddie Lacy *****. You are such a great talent evaluator!

Idiot.

Even a casual observer can see that Lacy is a very good RB.

I don't know what great RBs you're talking about. The only really good one I remember is Trent Richardson. And he's doing pretty damn good.

But you're right. Lacy can't be good based on what other RBs have done. Great logic there! Robert Griffin III is going to **** in the NFL because other Baylor QBs haven't done much. I prefer to judge each player individually.

But what do I know. I also thought Arian Foster was a 1st or 2nd round pick and he went undrafted...

540 carries for 3130 yards at 5.8 ypc and 35 TDs

and

355 carries for 2402 yards at 6.8 ypc and 30 TDs

With 185 less career carries than Richardson Lacy came in just 728 yards and 5 TDs short of the numbers put up by last years 3rd overall pick who happened to play in that same great offense.

You may want to stop with the Lacy talk, but a 6'1" 220lbs back who averaged almost 7 yards a carry in the SEC will remain in my conversation.

I don't get the idiotic concept that because a guy played on a good team that makes him not good. If a guy is the best player on the best team... Chances are he is pretty good. If you put a crappy back behind Bama's OL he is not going to put up those type of numbers. Lacy made guys miss and broke tackles it's not like he was running around un-touched all the time.

How many home run hitting backs are there in the NFL? A total of 4 HBs in the NFL had 5 or more runs of 40+ yards. Just because a guy is fast doesn't mean he is guaranteed to yank off long runs. Rarely is a HB untouched and I don't care how fast you are if you go down on first contact the long runs are not going to come in bunches.

I for one would love Eddie Lacy. I think he is going to be a Stephen Jackson type back in the NFL. He cuts very well for big back and has great vision.

To say he is a product of his offensive line is kind of a cop out. He broke a ton of tackles and you can knock a spin move all you want. It worked against top level talent.

And to call someone slow before a combine or workouts makes you sound very biased and uneducated about the situation. You don't know if he is slow or not.

He needs to be where he can get steady carries and wear a defense down

I agree with this.
Lacy reminded me of a guy I thought had SJax talent BEFORE getting hurt in Michael Bush (@ Louisville pre-injury)

I think the SJax comparisons are fully warranted right now.

Spot on. He can break a tackle as well as make someone miss. Many people are forgetting that Lacy played nearly all season with a nagging knee and ankle sprain. He was finally healthy for the championship game and you could tell. Besides his spin move, Lacy also has a lightning fast jump
cut. He showed that off against Te'o a few times to devestating success.
