GPA: 3.5
Class: 2022
40: 4.54

Lackey showed some upside in limited action behind an FBS back in 2020, but he is set for a good season in 2021. He hits his top speed quickly and at 6′ 205 lbs. he has a strong frame to be a good power back at the next level. His speed is average, but quick accelerator allows for him to rip off good runs, plus he has good vision reading the 2nd level of the defense. Lackey definitely needs to work on his explosion out his cuts. He runs pretty low to the ground, but could be better. Fluid at changing directions considering his stout frame. Lackey has a few areas to improve fundamentally, but a solid frame to work with and his production should catch your eye in 2021. Overall, he is one of the better athletes at his size at RB in the state of Georgia, and will find a spot one way or another. He breaks a decent amount of tackles, and has decent leg drive but like I said earlier, would want to see him get his pad level lower. Lackey should rush over 1k yards no problem though, he’s already off to a solid start with over 200 yards in just the first game.
