An Early Look at the Packers’ Backfield

  4 years ago     79 Views     2 Comments  

The selections of Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin in April’s draft bring both excitement and question to the Packers’ backfield for the coming fall. In Lacy, the Packers get the goal line force that they have lacked for years, and in Franklin, a three-down speedster. Both backs are virtual locks for the Week 1 roster, if they remain healthy.
