I'd look to pick up a versatile player in the draft who can play either OC or OG. Let him compete against Berny, Livings, Costa, etc. But you should be able to find this guy anywhere from Round 1 to Round 3.
So, if you really like Lacy, and think that he can add something to your running game, give you consistency at the position, I don't think there's anything wrong with taking him.
That said, my guess is that we'll probably go Safety or OL there. And I don't have a problem with that. I just wouldn't exclude a RB if the staff really thinks highly of him.
I dont think Dallas needs a Lacy type Rb when they have Murray. I think they need a Pierce/LeMichael James type. And they can have that with a Kenjon Barner in round 5.
