In all honesty, I wouldn't be upset with Lacy in the second round, assuming he is our RB. That being said, I wouldn't be ecstatic, either. There's better, more elite prospects we could grab at that point and I think there's better RBs than him in the later rounds. Go look at Knile Davis in 2010 and tell me that guy isn't ridiculous.
TJ Yeldon did not ouclass Lacy. Lacy had more rushing yards, more touchdowns and a better YPC than Yeldon, as well as better receiving stats. Even though Yeldon runs behind the same amazing line you would take him in the first round but wouldn't want Lacy in the second?
