Scouting Report:
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1664550/eddie-lacy wrote:

While Lacy's mediocre pro day workout raises red flags about his conditioning, there is no question he possesses the talent to be a bell-cow back at the next level. Lacy is a powerful between-the-tackles runner who can knock defenders to the ground. He's also possesses very light feet and excellent balance, often slipping past would-be tacklers with a lethal spin move.

Lacy is also a gifted receiver out of the backfield and has proven both alert and physical in pass protection, making it likely he'll be able to step in and contribute immediately as a rookie.

STRENGTHS:

Has the leg drive to push the pile and keeps his legs churning through contact, often resulting in broken tackles. Lacy reads his blocks nicely, showing enough lateral agility to avoid defenders as well as the burst to stick his foot in the ground and accelerate through gaps quickly.

He's a well-built back, but shows good balance (including an often-used spin move) and athleticism (leaping ability) to surprise defenders anticipating that all he has is power. Runs tough and determined with an angry attitude to finish each run and pick up positive yardage.

WEAKNSESSES: Needs to stay healthy as he's been hampered at times with foot injuries (ankle sprains, turf toe). Put the ball on the ground a few times early in his career, but improved in this area. Lacks elite top-end speed, clocking a pedestrian 4.58 and 4.62 seconds in the 40-yard dash at his pro day.

COMPARES TO: Michael Bush, RB, Chicago Bears - Both have the power to run over defenders while also possessing surprisingly fluid feed for their big frames.


General Consensus on the forum: The value of the pick in the 2nd round squashes nearly all the Lacy dissenters. Though he doesn't have the elite home run ability, his instincts and toughness figures to play a big factor into next season. While many feel he's the top back in the class, a majority of the rest are immediately ready to get behind him.

Couldn't be happier, can't believe he fell to our original pick, we move down and we still get him. We finally have a RB!

I actually liked Lacy at one point. Got sick of seeing him mocked as our 1st. I guess I'm ok with it as our 2nd round pick after trading down.

Good thing for talky-talk Harbaugh he has an outstanding citizen/player like Aldon Smith on his team and not a classless hooligan like Clay Matthews.
