Mike Tomlin says it was an easy decision to draft Le’Veon Bell over Eddie Lacy

As the Steelers prepare to face off against the Packers this week,  Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin stated that it was “an easy decision for me” to draft Le’Veon Bell over Eddie Lacy who ended falling to the Packers in the second round.

Tomlin admitted that Lacy is “top-nothc,” but they were sold on Bell’s versatility that can catch the ball out of the back field.

Even though a report surfaced after the draft that the Steelers wouoldn’t touch Lacy because of a lingering toe injury,  Tomlin never admitted that was the case.
