Eddie Lacy has put together another solid season for Green Bay in only is second year and has been a difference maker for the Packers. He should be a staple in the offense for years to come.

James Starks hasn’t quite had the year he did in 2013, his rushing average dropping from 5.5 to 3.8 yards per attempt this season. Starks will also be a free agent after next year, while DuJuan Harris is set to hit free agency this spring.

The Packers may have some depth concerns at running back if they don’t address the position in the draft. Plenty of talented backs will be available in the middle rounds.

Prospects to watch in CFB Bowl games:
