Saints Move Back Into Round One to Grab Heisman Trophy Winner RB Ingram


The Saints were beat up at the RB spot last sack eason, and they went out and made a deal with the Pats to move back in the first round and with the 28th pick grabbed Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram.

Here’s our Scouting Report on Ingram:

5-10, 215 pounds, Junior

Projected 40 time:

4.41 I’ve seen this reported a lot.

Walterfootball.com projects a 4.44

a 4.41 40 time.. Timed speed is overrated, but teams want to know if Ingram has enough speed to break away from the crowd and run away and I think for sure he does. Ingram has been very productive in Alabama, although he was much more productive in 2009 then he was in 2010 (hence the heisman trophy), but he got knicked up early in the year this year and still played well at times. After he had some time off for the bowl game he responded by having a huge bowl game vs Michigan State, a team that has at least one defensive player in the first two rounds.

Matt’s Take: What a solid pick for the Saints, who really can run the heck out of Ingram, who is a top five talent in this draft. If the Heisman Trophy winner can stay healthy, this can turn out to be a pick that puts the Saints right back in the title hunt in the NFC. He can catch out of the backfield, and can balance out Ingram along with guys like Chris Ivory and Reggie Bush.
