ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Alabama RB Eddie Lacy will not work out at this year’s NFL Combine after he suffered a “small tear in some tissue around his hamstring” last week.
Although it doesn’t sound like anything major, it’s certainly disappointing given that Lacy is one of the more intriguing players in this year’s draft class. Many have him as the best running back overall and I’m sure NFL teams would love to have seen his forty time.
There’s a chance that this could impact him draft stock slightly, but it’s still early in the process, so he’ll have time help himself out.
We have Lacy going to the Packers in the first-round of our 2013 NFL Mock Draft.
