I think the best running back in the draft will be Jonathan Franklin. Decent speed, good size, can catch the ball out of the backfield. Needs to improve his blocking greatly though to be an every down back.

I'm personally not sold on Lacy as a every down NFL back. I don't think he has enough speed, nor is his pass protection ability anywhere near good enough to be a 3rd down back. I also have concerns over the way he runs, he relied on his pure strength advantage over many opponents and in the NFL he will have a much tougher time overpowering defenders. I'm also of the opinion that Alabama RBs are consistently overrated because Alabama always has one of the very best OLs and a great power running scheme that almost any college running back could succeed in.
