LATEST NEWS
04/25/2013 - Eddie Lacy feels he ran out of time. If he doesn't go in the first round --breaking a streak that's seen a running back drafted in Round 1 every year since 1963 -- Lacy will point to the hamstring injury that kept him out of combine drills and delayed his pro day. "By the time my hamstring was close to being ready where I could actually work out, I had about two weeks before my pro day so I wasn't in the condition I should've been in due to a lack of time," the former Alabama star told "Archer and Bell" on 790 the Zone in Atlanta, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. "But I'm glad I finished it, I did the best I could and and I know if I was in better shape or had more time to prepare for it then everything would have been a lot better than it was."

The 5-11, 230-pounder clocked 4.58 and 4.62 in the 40-yard dash and had a "disappointing" positional workout at his April 11 pro day, former NFL scout Bucky Brooks said, adding Lacy appeared "out of shape." Lacy found it tough to hear those things. "People [were] saying ???he's not in shape' or ???he's not fast,' but in reality it's due to a lack of time," Lacy said. "It's something you can't really worry about. You know what you are capable of when you're 100 percent and the guys doubting you on the next level know as well. I don't think it should be said or anything like that, but there is nothing you can do about it."

CBSSports.com draft expert Rob Rang said Lacy's subpar pro day could hurt him in the draft, "but he's much more impressive on the field than off it. He has a unique combination of vision, balance and burst. If a running back is selected in the first round, it will be Lacy." - Larry Hartstein, CBSSports.com
