Alabama's Eddie Lacy has mixed results at workout
By Kareem Copeland
Former Alabama running back Eddie Lacy didn't run at the NFL Scouting Combine
or the Crimson Tide pro day due to hamstring issues. He worked out for scouts in Tuscaloosa, Ala. on Thursday with mixed results.
NFL.com's Bucky Brooks reported Lacy ran the 40-yard dash
in 4.57 seconds and 4.60 seconds. The Anniston Star's Mark Edwards reported two unofficial times of 4.4 seconds
. Lacy reportedly posted times of 4.58 and 4.62 at the Senior Bowl
"Lacy flashed outstanding talent as a runner and receiver, but lack of stamina is definitely a concern," Bucky tweeted. "Struggled the entire workout w/wind.
"The lack of conditioning exhibited today will lead some coaches and scouts to question his work ethic. Concerns must be addressed in Mtgs."
The 40-time was expected, but there may be some concerns with him being out of shape. You'd think he's been working towards this moment, but his conditioning could have taken a hit from not being able to run with the hamstring.
When it comes to Lacy, his tape will matter more than Thursday's workout. He was the best back in the country and ran for 1,322 yards and 17 touchdowns. He's the most complete, NFL-ready back in the draft. Lacy is still likely to go late in the first round to a team with running back needs like the Steelers
