2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Sep-01-2013 by Matt De Lima

Eddie Lacy's role will slowly be carved out during training camp and into the preseason. Right now, the Packers and the media have anointed him the starter. The Packers have a number of capable backs who will all compete for touches. Lacy will fend off Johnathan Franklin and DuJuan Harris. Ideally, you should draft Lacy as your third RB. This greatly minimizes any risk that he might forfeit playing time. It will be interesting to see how Green Bay splits the workload. If Lacy plays every down and is used as a workhorse back, he could easily contribute 1,300 total yards and a half dozen scores. That's high-end RB2 territory. However if he sits in goal-line situations or sacrifices third downs to another back, Lacy is a flex option at best.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
7.02 FFToolbox - Ben Standig 
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
5.01 FFToolbox - Eddie Lacy is a "value play" right now. Some are scared off by injury history, and maybe its a concern, but not for me. He's healthy, and he's a legitimate RB2 that should receive 200 carries+ for Green Bay.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
5.04 FFToday - This is the second pick in a row that my targeted player (in this case, Frank Gore) was taken before my selection. Then, CBS took my second option (Jason Witten). I'm an unhappy camper at this point but my frustration is just beginning.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
5.10 FootballDiehards - To maximize the talents of Aaron Rodgers, the Packers need to take a sledgehammer to Cover-2 defenses this year. Lacy can be that sledgehammer if he's healthy. Remember, Lacy, at full strength, was the runaway head of the draft class at his position. On the best team in college football, in the best conference, he rushed for 1,322 yards with 18 touchdowns. And yes, Jonathan Franklin worries me a bit.
