01:20 PM ET 04.18 | Former Alabama running back Eddie Lacy will be one of the last visits hosted by the New England Patriots before the 2013 NFL Draft next Thursday, according to ESPN Boston. The Patriots have also hosted former South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore in recent weeks, so it's possible that team is targeting a ball carrier with one if its three selections in the first two days of the draft. Both Lacy and Lattimore have injury concerns heading into the draft, explaining why the Patriots may be interested in taking a look at those two running backs in particular. Lacy sat out the NFL Combine and Alabama pro day to allow his injury hamstring to heal. He disappointed scouts when he finally held his private workout, however, appearing out of shape. The workout may have dropped Lacy out of the first round for good. He is still vying with UNC's Giovani Bernard to be the first running back taken in the draft, though neither player shows up in SB Nation's latest mock draft.

Since when is ESPN referencing the "latest SB Nation mock draft"?

Someone over there must be getting a kickback on that...

The Pats seem to do better with unknowns or retreads with 1 year left in the tank. Picking a RB high in the draft isn't their style.

Besides, they've still got to worry about that defense.

And the Patriots actually got Denver to give them something for him.

Bama running backs don't live up to their hype against the big boys on Sundays.

Because anybody with 2 legs could run behind their o-lines in Alabama.
