We talked about the power element Lacy will bring to the Packers ground game, but also touched upon his hamstring injury and debated whether his dedication can be called into question.

Pretty simple really. He was considered an option at 26 and was great value at 61. He complements Harris perfectly and fills a void at short yardage back. Also durability concerns seem fair but maybe overblown.

Didn't some guy named Adrian Peterson have injury concerns coming out of college?
