The star back from the powerhouse SEC school matches exactly what the Beegals could ever hope for in a feature back. Power, speed, and a physical running style are all attributes that Lacy possess on the football field.
He is a back that can take hits and can run through a defender. Or two of them. He has vision through the tackles and knows the angles he should take to get the most out of every play with his number on it.
In other words, he is a running back that could give the Bengals offense a much-needed spark after a dismal second half to the season this past year. The defense would definitely appreciate the help.
He may not get as much attention as a few other backs, so there is even the possibility that the Bengals might be able to get him as a value pick, compared with the abilities he would bring to the team.
I don’t think Cincinnati fans would be sorry.
