10) RUNNING BACK
In my opinion, running back is the least of their needs heading into the draft. Running backs don’t carry very good draft value anyway, so I find it hard to imagine a situation where they would draft a running back this spring.
Eddie Lacy is coming off of Offensive Rookie of the Year and Pro Bowl honors and seems to be the bruiser in the backfield the Packers offense has been missing for some time now.
James Starks was re-signed this offseason and forms a great 1-2 punch with Lacy. And, DuJuan Harris and Jonathan Franklin both bring their own unique talents to the backfield and provide depth at a position that was a weakness before the 2013 season.
With a healthy Rodgers under center in 2014, I expect big things from this running back group.
