Packers pick Alabama running back Eddie Lacy

The Green Bay Packers have picked Alabama running back Eddie Lacy in the second round of the NFL draft with the 61st overall selection.
The Packers swapped second-round spots on Friday night with San Francisco. They moved down six places in exchange for an early sixth-round pick from the 49ers, the 173rd overall selection.
Lacy was actually one of the players widely pegged as a prime prospect for the Packers in the first round, but he fell all the way down the board to the second-to-last spot in the second round. The Packers could use a powerful workhorse-style runner like Lacy, who helped lead the Crimson Tide to the national championship in January.
The only other tailbacks on the roster are DuJuan Harris, James Starks and Alex Green.
