The top running back in this year’s class won’t be working out at the Combine this week.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Alabama’s Eddie Lacy won’t work out in Indianapolis “after suffering small tear in some tissue around his hamstring while training last week.”
The hope is he’ll be recovered by Alabama’s March 13 pro day, and able to show scouts his ability then. NFL Network’s Mike Mayock said today he thought Lacy was the only first-rounder among running backs this year.
If scouts only watch his last two tapes, it won’t hurt his stock much, as he rushed for 321 yards and four touchdowns in the SEC Championship Game and the BCS title game combined.
