Each year, the question on which position(s) make up the most talent in the draft is a debated question.
When NFL Network Analyst Mike Mayock takes a look at the 2013 running back position he sees just one first round pick.
Alabama’s Eddie Lacy is Mayock’s top running back after averaging 150 rushing yards per game in the Crimson Tide’s final three contests.
At this year’s NFL Combine, Lacy offered an assessment of his 230-pound running style.
“Just being able to be a powerful runner, I (also) need to be an agile runner and make people miss,” Lacy said of his style. “With my size, being able to be agile and make people miss, that’s really key.”
Playing in arguably the nation’s most talented backfield during his time at Alabama served Lacy well.
Lacy leaves Alabama with 355 total carries and he feels as though that will be a strength as he moves deeper into his NFL career.
“That’s always an advantage because you didn’t get banged up as a lot of guys who did take all those carries early,” Lacy said.
“At a school like Alabama, you get talent year in and year out so even when one leaves, the next person right behind him is going to be just as good if not better.”
Despite the lack of carries (compared to other running back draft prospects) for much of his four seasons in Tuscaloosa, it was Lacy getting the rock when the lights were the brightest.
In his final four collegiate games, Lacy ran for nine touchdowns to go along with 181- and 140-yard efforts in the SEC and BCS Championships respectively.
“I was able to show up in the big games on the big stages and in the NFL, every game is a big game no matter what,” Lacy said. “So if I was able to perform well in those games, you know it should be an indication that I can do the same thing in the NFL.”
