Frankly, Peterson should be the pick in every year of his prime.
"Without a doubt," running backs coach Sam Gash said this week, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He has the capability of being the leading rusher and maybe even combined yards if he catches a lot of balls. I absolutely do think that.
"I think he's a bell cow. He's a big guy, and he's physical."
From Week 5 on last season, McCoy and Charles were the only running backs to average more than Lacy's 86.7 yards per game.
Once he entered the starting lineup, Lacy averaged 23 carries and 99 rushing yards per game with Aaron Rodgers under center. That projects to roughly 1,600 yards if Lacy and Rodgers can stay healthy for a full season.

"He's a rare player," one scout told the Journal Sentinel after watching Lacy in preseason action. "He has no weaknesses. He can catch, run, block."
