Does anybody know what range he may run in at the combine?
I guess 4.52
yeah, 4.5 or 4.6
I expect EL to do well at the combine and if he really does well, to better than expected he's going to be a potential first rounder, although I believe he ends up second round. IMO he has all the things the pros like and this should get him drafted in the top 30-40 picks.
"You don't always get what you want, but you always get what you deserve"
I'd guess between 4.55 and 4.65.
Faster than Trent.. who wants the bet??
I'll take it. What's at stake?
“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”
4.64, but the 40 is overrated imo
Naked pics of my gf? hahaha
Gentlemans bet, I know - boring...
Trent ran an official 4.48 I think - EL might beat that
Is there an established time for a perfectly executed spin move? or maybe a perfectly executed double spin move? Although I think he will run a respectable 40 (4.56), it's his ability to make would be tacklers miss, and the power that he runs with that will make him lots of money!

My guess is that he doesn't run the 40. Straight ahead speed isn't Eddie's strength..power and elusiveness are.
Eddie isn't going sub 4.5. I think anything sub 4.6 would be a good time for him.
where's BBD when you need him
This^^^^ I wouldn't be surprised if he went 4.7 on his 1st attempt.
With or without spin move?
I would enjoy his thoughts as well.
Slow track with electronic timing at the Combine. "Strategically" he's in a power position given how he ended this season.
-My advice would be to do all drills at the Combine except the 40 yard dash
-Run 40 at Pro Day in Tuscaloosa on a slightly faster surface with hand-timing....likely run .08 to .13 faster under these conditions than at the Combine. See Mark Ingram's time difference for reference.
This would be my advice if he were trying to maximize his draft stock. Pure speed is not what makes him a great RB. It's his overall power, shiftiness/agility, and size. Hearing lots of comparisons to Jamal Lewis as a big RB that can do it all. If he were the fastest or 1 of the fastest RBs in the draft, I'd advise him to run....but given his overall skillset and current stock...I would advise against it.
Lacy is probably now battling Bernard from UNC and perhaps Montee Ball as the top RB in the draft. Glad to see this success. Kid has come a long way in the past 3-4 years. Tells you about the new "RB U" when a guy that was getting mop-up duty as a 3rd stringer in 2010 may be the top RB in the 2013 Draft. Our 3rd-4th string RBs would start at 95% of the schools in the nation.

You get out of it what you put into it!
Remember, he walked to the podium on NSD intending to announce for Tennessee, and decided on his way he was going to Bama. Smart (and valuable) decision.
thanks for your insight BBD.
I'll go 4.53. Hope he gets drafted High or ends up in a Winning Organization who will give him the rock.
Same as Shaun Alexander ran- 4.65. My guess...
Just like S. Alexander, you very seldom see him get walked down when he breaks a big one.
