Alabama running back Eddie Lacy will work out for scouts on April 11. Lacy has been unable to perform athletic testing for NFL evaluators since injuring his hamstring before the 2013 Scouting Combine in February. He hoped to be recovered for Alabama's pro day in Tuscaloosa last month but remained idle. The majority of testing days wrap up this weekend. Lacy, 5-11, 231, is likely to receive plenty of attention. The junior is NFLDraftScout.com's top-ranked running back and 33rd overall prospect. He hopes to crack the first round to give the Crimson Tide a back in the opening round for the third consecutive year, following Mark Ingram (Saints) and Trent Richardson (Browns). Scouts estimate his speed in the 40-yard dash is in the 4.6-second range. His pro day will be important for Lacy to meet that minimal standard, even though he is known more for his power and short-area quickness.
