No, they needed to take another RB or have another RB on the roster to complement Lacy. Scouts have continually pointed to Lacy's ongoing medical concerns since high school, and said he played just two games at 100% last year. There's also concerns about his interviews, while he does check out, he doesn't have the mindset to carry the load in the NFL. All Alabama players come out dinged up so in order to get the most out out him, they took the perfect RB to pair with him. Franklin is a complete back, as is Lacy, but Lacy will handle the carries between the tackles. Both are solid in pass protect, Franklin better.

Just what I've gathered through comments from the Packers brass.

James Starks, Alex Green, Dajuan Harris. Not a bunch you feel comfortable with heading into the season. Add in the top two complete RBs from this class then you open up a great TC competition. They added another dimension to their offense assuming health.
