On NFL Network, I swear I just heard them say that Lacy posted a 4.57 forty....were my ears tricking me? If so, he definitely solidified his place in the 1st round for sure...Wow!
no kidding. if that's true...then, just...damn!

Why are people surprised? Lacy always looked faster than Trent and Ingram to me.
He might be but he never looked faster to me. But sometimes shorter people look faster than they are so maybe that's why I thought trent was faster
I remember during the Combine telling all the "Lacy will run in the high 4.6s to 4.71" dumbasses that he would run at least sub-4.6.
Eddie is fast guys..he's always been fast and he's always looked faster than Trent to me.
I can't say I ever thought he looked faster than Trent and the clock says he isn't either. 4.57 is good for his size no doubt but it isn't something that will open eyes. His draft status probably didn't change any based on that forty.
All you high 4.6s to 4.71 dumbasses just got served.
It aint like a 4.57 is blazing fast or anything lol. For his size that is good speed, but Eddie is not a "speed back" so this time really won't hurt him. He is a power back with above average quickness and agility that can make people miss in the hole or the open field. I think Lacy can have a very long and succesful career in the NFL. I don't ever recall seeing Lacy take any big hits. I can't say the same about Trent or Ingram
Eat clean. Train Hard.
if i was a gm i would never take a rb in the first round unless it was adrian peterson guy just too much talent available later on
Roll Tide to Her
It was around 4.6 and no it doesn't solidify his spot in the 1st end. 4.6 is average for nfl rb's. still what separates him from others is his size and production. I don't think it hurt him but it didn't really help him either. I still like kiper's prediction on someone jumping back into rd 1 to snag him.
I agree. 10+ years ago I would understand, but with the NFL being such a passing league now you could find a quality NFL back late in the draft. Honestly unless he is a big time guy I wouldn't draft a RB in the 2nd Rd either.
