With just a short month between now and training camp, the Packers depth chart is still jam packed with talent. And with all that talent comes some players who need some of the spotlight to get fans excited about them. And now, with the second edition of this breakdown, we hit the offensive backfield.
For this series, which will finish by training camp starts, we will look at each and every player on the roster, breaking down their strengths, weaknesses, their role, and their best and worst case scenarios. I will also project their role. Let’s dive into the depths of the Packers pool of talent.

#27 EDDIE LACY, RB
5’11” 234 lbs. Age 26 (4th season)
Drafted in the 2nd Round (61st Overall) in 2013 from Alabama
Strengths: Lacy is a true power runner in the mold of Marshawn Lynch or a poor man’s Earl Campbell, capable of running over any defender and usually leaving a trail of would-be tacklers in his wake. And in his first two season he could combine his power with great agility and good enough speed to break big runs. He is also a very good receiver out of the backfield though he needs help with his route running.
