As crazy as it sounds considering that the Commodores compete in the ultra-talented SEC, Vanderbilt has never had a running back selected inside the initial seven rounds of an NFL Draft during the modern era. The last time any Vanderbilt runner was selected came 32 years ago when the New Orleans Saints selected Frank Mordica in the ninth round.
Stacy could snap that streak following a 1,034-yard senior season in which he averaged 5.4 yards per carry despite being banged up down the stretch. He's the only player in school history with consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, and has demonstrated legitimate playmaking ability throughout his career when healthy.
Stacy teamed with Warren Norman as true freshman to give the Commodores an exciting young backfield tandem in 2009. Stacy started four games and finished second behind Norman with 478 yards and three scores, but an ankle injury hampered his effectiveness and Norman starred.
Each struggled with injuries in 2010, with Stacy encountering both a knee sprain and a concussion and he only registered 331 rushing yards and just 32 yards on nine receptions.
His junior season was a different story as Stacy remained healthy and showcased the talent he'd flashed during previous seasons. He broke several team records, including the most yardage (1,193 yards) and rushing touchdowns (14) in a single season.
WEAKNESSES: Ordinary burst and lacks elite long-speed. Not overly elusive and doesn't have much make-you-miss ability. Runs light at times and allows his pads to rise, taking away from his power. Not a lot of flash and sizzle to his game. Averaged only 10 catches per year and wasn't a large part of the passing game. Seemed to be dinged up easily and carries some durability concerns after missing parts of several games due to injury.
