I think he is a great fit in SD. Ryan Matthews misses a lot of games every year, so Lacy will take the pounding off of him, especially in short yardage. Also, McCoy has just learned from John Fox, who makes good use of a two-back system.
Oh, and how many times did we see Matthews get stuffed in short yardage situations? Lacy will definitely be a chain mover for McCoy in his first year; it's going to be nice to have that kind of security blanket. And having a good locker room/good character guy with great work ethic is always a plus.
I am very pleased to get lacy here. I wanted to move down very badly, but that opportunity did not pan out. So, a very nice fit here for the chargers.
The problem with that pick is the team that took him.
So they have RB problems. They also have HUGE O-line problems,
and NO ONE to throw to.
Not to mention they have major issues at CB.
I would have passed on the pick myself and taken a RB later, but thats just me.
SD is a hard to to draft for, and he might be looking at it from a different perspective. Maybe more of a BPA situation.
Either way, Lacy brings big time swag to that team.
