2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
Following Alabama's recent tradition of putting backs into the NFL, Lacy is a power back with surprising burst in tight spaces. He has good height and is a tough back to tackle. Quick, choppy feet when running through the line. An upright runner who will need to bring his pad level down to avoid big hits. Not a lot of wear and tear on his body due to split backfields throughout his college career, but did suffer some minor injuries (including a turf toe surgery in 2011).
Lacy has a nice blend of power and quickness. Must learn to play with high intensity more consistently. Adequate straight line speed. Average in pass protection reads. Did not run many routes as a pass-catcher. Not afraid of contact and won't always rely on lateral movements. A north-south runner.
He projects as a late-first to second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
