The Packers’ starting running back position will be one of the most interesting position battles to watch in the entire NFL. The Packers selected both Eddie Lacy and Jonathan Franklin in this year’s draft. Both of them were easily in the top 5 of the best running backs in the 2013 draft.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy believes the run game will improve.
“Expectations for the run game, don’t have a number for you,” McCarthy said. “To me, that will sort itself out in training camp. These workouts are great, they’re a teaching, educational part of developing your football team. We have to get in pads to find out what’s real and what’s perception. We’ll be better, I promise you that. Big letters.”
Jonathan Franklin, Eddie Lacy, DuJuan Harris, Alex Green, and James Starks will all be in the running for the starting job. I know I will be following this camp battle very closely.
