Eddie Lacy of the Alabama Crimson Tide ended up a 2nd round NFL Draft pick, and the fourth running back taken. As there’s no stud running back in this class. I thought Eddie Lacy would be the first. The Green Bay Packers were rumored to be interested in Montee Ball, but didn’t get the chance to take him and opted to select Alabama’s Eddie Lacy 61st overall, just three picks later. Lacy showed up to his first NFL training camp as a big disgusting, fat, Jabba the Hut blob. Or at least one pic conveyed that. Upon further review… Who ate ex-Alabama RB Eddie Lacy? pic.twitter.com/rUtXFnd3jd #LenDaleWhiteRedux — LostLettermen.com (@LostLettermen) July 29, 2013   Eddie Lacy is a big Jessica Simpson like fat ass, right? Well, how did this picture happen? Actually, he’s fine shape. Look at this Vine of Eddie Lacy in action and another picture of him, and you’ll see the rookie out of Alabama looks just fine. He looks just like the guy who owned the national title game and DOMINATED Notre Dame 6 months ago.   #Packers RB Eddie Lacy chips a tackling dummy, catches a pass. https://t.co/eb5DbEGezn — Jason Wilde (@jasonjwilde) July 28, 2013   Another pic of Eddie Lacy from same day .
