Red-Flags Continue to Surround Alabama's Eddie Lacy



The Denver Post is reporting that concerns about Alabama running back Eddie Lacy’s surgically-repaired foot could have been what knocked him out of the first round:

Concern about Eddie Lacy’s toe may be reason why he wasn’t picked in first round. Lacy missed the scouting combine and first Alabama Pro Day because of hamstring. But it was turf-toe he suffered as junior that raised some medical red flags. Still, Lacy is expected to go in the second round today. He is a 231-pound beast.

Many analysts pegged Lacy as a first-round target for the Cincinnati Bengals, but given their history with backs who were injury-prone or had durability concerns, it would be a surprise if they even took him with the #37 pick.

His offseason hamstring injury kept him out of action at the NFL Scouting Combine and the Alabama Pro Day, and by the time he had a chance to show his wares to scouts, he wasn’t ready, as he struggled to even finsih all of the drills, and led many to question his work ethic and durability at the NFL level.
