With the 61st pick in the draft, the Green Bay Packers select…

Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama Crimson Tide (5-11, 231 pounds)

We weren't surprised to see several running backs drafted in front of Alabama's Eddie Lacy, but he is a solid fit and better value for Green Bay at this stage of round two. While lacking top end burst and vision, Lacy is a bear to bring down in the open field and will get plenty of room to operate in Green Bay's wide open offense.
