Packers HC Mike McCarthy said this offseason that he wants his running backs to be able to stay on the field for all three downs, and that could mean more opportunities for starter Eddie Lacy in the passing game.
During several of the team blitz periods, Lacy has been seen leaking out of the backfield and catching passes in the flat. At one recent practice, Lacy was working on catching passes off to the side while there was a special teams period taking place on the main field.
This is great news for potential Lacy owners. Lacy has fallen, at times, to late in the first round as owners go after WRs. If you're set on taking a RB, Lacy would have as much potential as any at that point in the draft.
