Alabama halfback Eddie Lacy probably will be the first halfback drafted but had been unable to run for scouts all offseason because of a hamstring injury.

He finally was able to run for scouts today, and in a workout on the Alabama campus ran the 40 in 4.58 and 4.62 seconds, according to the Senior Bowl’s Twitter account.

That’s not a fast 40 time for a running back, but Lacy is a 230-pound power back, and his time was about what NFL scouts were predicting he’d run. The time probably won’t hurt or help his draft status, and he figures to get selected late in the first round, or at worst early in the second.

The Green Bay Packers are a good bet to draft a running back this year, possibly early, so they no doubt have taken a hard look at Lacy as a possible pick at No. 26 overall.

According to Brad Biggs at NationalFootballPost.com, Lacy also had a 33 ˝-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot, 7-inch broad jump in his workout.

The Senior Bowl twitter accounted also reported that at the same re-check workout, Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker weighed 337lbs, jumped 27 1/2 inches and ran 4.95 seconds in the short shuttle. He probably will get drafted in the late teens or early 20s of the first round.
