I like Lacy. I think he'll be a good back. But RB isn't really a problem on this team. You can generally find a decent back and Lacy isn't special. I mean, Dwyer and Redman aren't bad.

IIRC from last year, isn't it NFL Network that is actually respectful about not spoiling every single draft pick well before it is actually made?

I seem to recall ESPN quickly panning to show someone talking on their cell phone with a giant **** eating grin on their face, and Boomer going HURR DURR HE LOOKS LIKE A HAPPY GUY.

And just as I was typing this, good news:

http://www.fredericknewspost.com/sports/article_bca71f23-25eb-5760-a799-7e5d4d50c80c.html

To preserve that sense of suspense, the networks that broadcast the draft, ESPN and NFL Network, agreed last year to pull back. They no longer will show a draft prospect on his cell phone or placing a team cap atop his head moments before the commissioner makes the official announcement.

I like Lacy as well, but unless a running back is an Adrian Peterson level talent, I no longer see the point in taking a running back in the first round.

No reason to AGAIN waste a first round pick on a running back.

(Insert joke about a Beach Boy wanting to rage right now.)

Unless all the major targets are gone (Jones, Mingo, Vaccaro, Petersson, Austin) i see no reason to draft Lacy that high.

If Lacey is their guy and they are high on him, then by all means take him.. Just trade down first

Exactly. You can get quality backs round 3 and on. The OL is much more the key to the running game than the back.

Not in a million years. There is only one TE like Eifert in this draft and a limited number of TEs like him in the league. This draft and the league are littered with RBs like Lacy.

I will rage if they take the lb who ran a 4.9 40, had to transfer schools because of a spinal condition, and takes plays off according to a draft publication read out on 93.7.

Somewhere in the second half of the first round is my guess.

A lot of people had him going to Cleveland. Barring trades he could also go to buffalo at 8.

Based on all the selections of the draft so far, it appears NFL teams are just picking people they see in line at Golden Corral
