The Green Bay Packers doubled down on fixing their backfield woes in this year's draft, when they selected both Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin. Since Franklin had trouble establishing himself as part of the mix early on, in large part due to pass-protection issues, and despite the praise DuJuan Harris received from coaches early on, fantasy owners bought into Lacy as the most likely Packer back to get going this season. In the end, his average draft position was No. 41 overall and No. 20 amongst running backs. That made him the top rookie RB off the board.
