Packers pick Eddie Lacy in second round

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 26, 2013 – 7:34 pm

GREEN BAY–With the 61st overall pick of the draft, following a trade back with the 49ers, the Packers addressed their short-yardage problems of a year ago by selecting pounding Alabama running back Eddie Lacy.

Lacy had been a wish-list player of Packers fans since he ran wild against Notre Dame in the national championship game. Lacy, 6-0, 220, likely fell to the bottom of the second round as a result of not being able to work out at the combine or at his pro day due to a hamstring injury.

One draft publication says: “Strong, productive, downhill runner who got stronger as the season progressed and has the explosive power and strength to churn for yardage after contact.”

The Packers struggled to convert third-and-one type plays last season. The Packers had the league’s 20th-ranked running game.
