12:00 PM ET 05.12 | Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin are already friends, roommates, teammates and competitors. Whether the two rookie running backs will be the saviors of the Green Bay Packers??? long-dormant running game remains to be seen. With the team taking Alabama???s Lacy in the second round of last month???s NFL Draft, then trading up to take UCLA???s Franklin in the fourth round, both players understand their connection. And when they arrived in Green Bay for the team???s post-draft rookie orientation camp on Thursday, they learned they???d be bunking in together at a hotel near the airport, where the rookies are being housed until training camp kicks off in July or they find more permanent living arrangements. ???We???re roommates in the hotel, we talk. But we???re going to have to compete,??? Lacy said. ???It???s just like when you???re in college ??? you get there, you meet the other running backs, you???re all friends but you have to compete. It???s no different here.???

Sick that GB got both of these guys.

Huge turnaround from the last couple decades of no running backs.

So they have some running backs. That's great. Have they determined whether or not their O-line is any good at run blocking? They've been stacking the line to protect the QB for a long time and that usually means you get the type of linemen who are not the ones who will root out the big uglies on the other side and create running lanes.

You need to switch to a different translation software. This is a train wreck.
