Eddie Lacy runs 4.57-4.60 40's, disappoints with stamina and conditioning

Only two weeks away from the 2013 NFL Draft, ex-Alabama running back Eddie Lacy did not make the desired impression at his pro day today.

While the big back (230 pounds) posted good forty times (4.57-4.60), Lacy "was huffing and puffing and unable to finish drills," per Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

Brooks tweeted, "Disappointed in stamina and conditioning. Stopped twice during workout to catch breath. Didn't give maximum effort in drills. No finish."

He also tweeted, "The lack of preparation also makes you wonder about how much he loves football, and whether he will commit to doing the hard work."

To be fair, Lacy had strained his hamstring, which prevented him from running at the combine in February.

Since 1963, a running back has been selected in the first round of the NFL draft every year. In fact, Alabama has had back-to-back first-round running backs: Mark Ingram (2011) and Trent Richardson (2012).

Based on my latest mock draft, those streaks end. I have Lacy going in the second round to the Steelers as the first running back off the board.
