Packers signed No. 61 overall pick RB Eddie Lacy to a four-year contract.
Lacy, widely believed to be the top-overall running back in the run-up to the draft, fell to the Packers in the second round due to concerns over surgery to correct a toe injury. Although there are differing opinions on the status of his health and long-term outlook, the Packers were comfortable enough to draft him. GM Ted Thompson has already said the team views Lacy as an every-down back. He'll likely serve as the early-down thunder to Johnathan Franklin or DuJuan Harris' passing-down lightning as a rookie.

I'm trying to temper expectations, hey alex green was a 3rd round draft pick and turned out to be a disappointment, but I can't help but feel GB has finally solved the problem at RB.
