When Eddie Lacy joined the Seattle Seahawks this offseason, it really intrigued me. Seattle was missing a running back who could get the tough yardage. The best part of his contract was the weight requirements that they put into place.
Lacy has made weight through the offseason and camp and we’ve seen what he can do when he’s under 250 pounds. He’s expected to be the starting running back going into Week 1, but his conditioning could be a factor.
Lacy is No. 67 overall on my draft board, and number 32 at his position. The preseason will give us a better idea of how Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise will be used. This will either help or hurt Lacy’s draft stock.
