Many thought that the Packers would target running back Eddie Lacy at the bottom of round one.
They were right, eventually.
The Packers made Lacy the 61st pick in the draft, ending a slide that saw him selected behind three other running backs — Giovani Bernard, Le’veon Bell, and Montee Ball.
Now that the Packers have invested in a running back, let’s see if they use him. In the past, the Pack have blustered about developing a running game, and yet they have continued to pass to set up the pass.
If they embrace Lacy (and if he performs well), the Packers can add some balance to their offense. Even if quarterback Aaron Rodgers doesn’t want them to.
