08:06 AM ET 04.12 | One of the more anticipated offseason prospect workouts took place Thursday, with Eddie Lacy recording unofficial 4.57 and 4.6 40-yard dash times and a 32.5-inch vertical. The times and measurements weren't an issue to NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks, a former NFL player and scout who was on campus to watch the former Alabama running back. It was how winded Lacy, who is projected as a late first round or early second round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, looked after a workout that, according to Brooks, was shortened. "Scout and coaches left with questions about Lacy's work ethic and preparation habits," Brooks wrote on his Twitter account. "Some wondered why he wasn't ready for his big day."

He might want to stay home Thursday night... and go somewhere and do stuff on Friday and Saturday.

No point sitting by the phone waiting.

"Red flags for Lacy." Sounds like a fundraiser for a kid with cancer.

Stupid to time guys without a full set of pads on anyways.

He kind of reminds me of Lendale White.

"Some wondered why he wasn't ready for his big day." Good question....Son; you just cost yourself some big bucks! So the scouts are not only questioning his work ethics, but now have to question his intelligence.

He's most likely been on a steady diet of beer, pizza and icecream since the NCG.

When I think of "red" and "lacy," my mind goes straight to Victoria's Secret.

Lazy and stupid is incurable.

He had a bad day and he cost himself money. So what. Someone will draft him.

Very good comparison!!!!

Other than being slow, getting winded easily, having a bad work ethic, bad preparation habits, and having a vertical that was bordering on horizontal, he looked great!

Wasn't he nursing a bad hamstring? 40 times mean squat in the NFL, it's all about the 10 and 20 yard splits.

I guess working out with Andre Smith wasn't such a great idea.

LOL. Great minds think alike!

I've got a couple of thoughts on this:

1) As a Packer fan, I'm glad Lacy is showing the world he is a potential bust after he was projected by some as the Packers 1st round pick. Hate to see them waste this pick since this have several areas of need.
2) If Lacy is that slow, Mante T'eo must be stationary.

There's a joke there that I better refrain myself from saying. :)
