Lacy is streaky and unproven. He is not a top 25 talent.
    Uhh... Im not a Lacy fan but c'mon... he had 9 attempts vs Michigan with a TD. He had 9 attempts vs w. Kentucky. He had 12 attempts vs Arkansas and 3 TD's.

    All 3 games were total blowouts and all of them had a bunch of TO's with short fields.

    that would be a horrible overdraft.

    no way he is worth the 17th pick.

    Oh, but THAT is what makes him PERFECT.
    Having "A" lazy back is a problem.

    But if you have A STABLE of talented backs who are easily winded GREAT.

    Rotate you fat lazy out of shape backs EVERY DOWN.

    Dont sign a guy like S Jackson who is nearly a decade in the league but in better shape than these youngsters. Selfish ball hogs like that want the rock all the time.

    Our guys "unselfishly" call for a teamate to get a chance after ever exausting 9 yard run.

    THAT builds team chemistry.

    Don't lump all these guys together. We all know it's Dwyer that invented the 2 yard breather.

    I remember Curtis Martin saying he was scared to come out no matter what cause Parcels once told him if he ever comes out he might not ever get back in.

    He ran one season, and didn't even get the carries early in the season. Why wasn't he getting carries, if he is a guy you can build a team around? I think Lacy is a good back, just not worthy of the Steelers pick.

    He sprained his knee and ankle in spring ball. As the season went on you saw him get stronger and put up big numbers. 181 vs Georgia in the SEC Championship. Those numbers early on dont scare me, Bamma was stacked and blew out most competition last year... He had some good games later in the season but I think the OL deserved the bulk of the credit.

    He isnt a 1st round talent though... and personally, I dont want him. However, the more I think back to the second half of the season.. starting with Mizzou, he really showed out.

    I still dont want him in the first. Im not sold on Bell either... I like the kid from Wisconsin in the second
