Eddie Lacy of the Alabama Crimson Tide ended up a 2nd round NFL Draft pick, and the fourth running back taken. As there’s no stud running back in this class. I thought Eddie Lacy would be first.
Montee Ball was the third running back taken in the Draft behind North Carolina’s Giovani Bernard (Cincinnati – 37th overall) and Michigan State’s Le’veon Bell (Pittsburgh – 48th overall). The Green Bay Packers were rumored to be interested in Ball, but didn’t get the chance to take him and opted to select Alabama’s Eddie Lacy 61st overall, just three picks later.
In the national championship game DESTRUCTION of Notre Dame, Eddie Lacy was named the Offensive MVP after rushing for 140 yards and scoring two touchdowns.
