... due to lingering tightness in his hamstring, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Smart. He's getting good advice. His 40 time would likely kill any shot he has in the 1st rd.
I felt that he was going to have to run a good 40 to get in the first round. Running the 40 may knock him out of the first, but not running the 40 could also keep him out of the first. He's not a burner or anything, but his speed is adequate for the NFL, I know he has put on some weight, but he had legit speed coming out of HS.
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
Didn't Nick Saban advise Eddie to stay in school and prove to NFL GM's that he could stay healthy?
There it goes. There will not be a running back taken in the first round this year. "Muscle titness"???
Still holding out hope that he falls to ATL
Confident he will
Saban would never advise a running back that could go in the 1st or 2nd round to come back. To much wear and tear especially when considering the length of a running backs career. Add that to the fact of him being the No1 rated running back, he shouldnt have come back.

Yeah but I don't think they'd use their 1st pick on him. He'd have to fall to end of 2nd or ATL move up
I don't about the reason, but he told Eddie that he needed another year. He said at the PC when players were announcing that he thought Lacy needed another year, and that the reports of when he would be picked were not accurate, and wouldn't go as high as the advisory board was projecting him.
How do you know that?
My recollection of those comments is exactly the opposite. At the time EL wasn't the number one RB on the board. There were very few analysts that had him as a 1st round pick. Saban said they were mistaken in that he was underrated.
I seriously doubt he held a press conference to say that the scouts have overrated his player and he really isn't going to go as high as everybody thinks. Haha
