Hey, shady baby, I'm hot like the prodigal son
Pick a petal eenie meenie miney moe
And, flower, you're the chosen one
Well, your left hand's free
And your right's in a grip
With another left hand
Watch his right hand slip
Towards his gun, oh, no
His nagging injuries are my worry if we're talking second round - he always seemed to have something bothering him. He wasn't all that quick for most of the season, his feet looked heavy; I just don't know if that's his foot bothering him/the wear of the season/inconsistency. He was fine after 4-5 weeks off for the ND game.
Lacy isn't the RB from Alabama I want.
that kids got special talents though...
as for lacy i'm hearing a lot of people ripping him a new one for his work ethic...that may just be so he falls to someone given when i'm hearing it but it may also be after his workout in which i heard he was very out of shape it's another red flag for teams...
i also heard his time was closer to 4.6 flat than 4.4's...
Franklin of UCLA is going to be a star. Best back in the draft.
I like his tools, but have some reservations. I like how he improved catching and blocking, and I like his north-south decisiveness when he sees a lane. What I like a lot is his forward momentum; not necessarily a downhill runner, but just a sense that he always has motion upfield, hard to describe but pretty attractive for a RB. I just don't think he has enough wiggle or lateral quickness for being 205. His straight-ahead running is nice, but it makes it easier for defenses to get big hits on him because he just isn't that elusive or much or a make-you-miss quickness guy. I see him take some pretty big shots in clips, and he looks pretty filled out to me, not sure he can add 10lbs (I believe he added weight between junior-senior year). I also see him running off-tackle alot, which seems to be a theme with some of these backs; it doesn't worry me as much as it does with Ellington because Franklin has shown decisiveness hitting a hole, but I just wish we saw more inside running in UCLA's read-option/pistol.
