I guess he feels Lacy is a step above the rest of the pack and he probably is in a lot of ways. That size of his, with quick feet and some speed to get outside. The Steelers may feel he is a young Jerome Bettis. One mock has the Steelers taking him all the way down into the second round. Now that would be great. In my mock above I have them taking a similar style back in Montee Ball in the 3rd.
One thing for sure if the team likes Lacy trade down in the round and get an extra pick at least in the 3rd.
