He has quick feet and the patience to let the play develop. He can catch the ball out of the backfield and tends to run straight ahead versus dancing around would-be tacklers
What they’re saying about him:
- Footballnation.com: “Eddie Lacy is the perfect build for a power back in the NFL. This means he can power through the defense while being very hard to bring down due to his lower center of gravity. Lacy is also a decent receiver out of the backfield – he has 35 receptions for 335 yards and 2 receiving touchdowns during his time at Alabama. Lacy does not have a history of major injuries, he’s a pretty healthy back considering he’s a power running back who doesn’t shy away from contact”
