And the saga continues...
Sorry boys I'm on my mobile so no link but Ingram is saying all these rumors are false about his knee concerns per ESPN.

Do your homework Miami

As for whether he is worth #15 or not, let me save people the time . . . HE IS. Mallet, Ponder . . . any QB, obviously QB comes first . . . but Mark Ingram has proven to be right up there in the conversation at 15.

I can respect taking a RB later, especially if it means taking a QB first . . . but people, please stop with the "he isn't worth the #15 overall pick" . . . because he is.

I agree. Just because you want another player, it does not mean Ingram is not worthy of the 15th pick. I personally would love to pick Mallett. If Mallett is not there, I would not be mad with picking Ingram. I would be mad however if we passed on Mallett for Ingram. Not because I think Ingram isn't worth the pick, but rather because I want Mallett more.

I still think he's most likely a mid first rounder. My guess is to the Giants.

You mean he didn't go on ESPN and say he has a bum knee. Weird!

Any running back is not worth a first rounder these days...PERIOD.

Ingram's knee is fine, ask Michigan St...

I've said it before, if Ingram's knee was a significant concern, he would've had a significant procedure done on it last year. Is his knee PERFECT? Probably not.. and neither is any other prospects knees in this draft...

I'd give anything to be a GM in the NFL with some of you jokers that believe every single word that some sportswriter with no CLUE what the hell he's talking about prints...


Michael Lombardi: "I've had two teams tell me that they're extremely worried about Mark Ingram's knee and taken him off their draft board"...

Michael Lombardi: "These are teams that need a running back"...




Keep reading those two quotes until it finally sinks in...


It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure out what's going on here...

There are only a few RB's that are or have been worthy of a Top 15 selection. Mark Ingram ain't one of them.

Sry but if he winds up in rd 1 I will laugh any back that has a deteriorating knee should not be taken in rd 1 I don't care what he can do for us I am not looking for another Ronnie Brown.. Analysts also have him falling to rd 2 since this concern has come to hand.

i think the giants is possible no doubt but i think they are all about mike pouncey...i've penciled ingram in to norleans if he gets by us and the pats...

Igram played in what was possibly the toughest confrence in the nation, the SEC, and he was a beast.

His knee got a little banged up and he missed a few games last year but he came back and looked like he didn't miss a beat.... I mean he played the rest of the season without a problem at all... seems to me his knee is ok.

another thing, most of the teams that 'bama played last year were comin off their bye weeks.. that means ingram was running into fresh, rested defenses most of the season... and he is healthy.

he is worth it at 15

He was quoted as saying Dr. Andrews told him the knee was in great shape and was 100% fine. That in itself tells me his knee is good. If it were false the physician could easily deny that was the prognosis. Also i think Ingram seems to be an honest guy and wouldn't mmisquote a very famous doctor IMO.

My BS meter really is pinging big time when I hear all this stuff about Ingram's knee and falling out of the 1st round, etc. He's still not going to be Miami's pick but I do think there's a lot of misinformation going around about him.

He would be a hell of a consolation prize if somebody takes Mallet before we can.

There seems to be some real talent that meets our team's need at this pick. I wish I had faith in our front office to actually select it...

On Gruden's show with Auburn's Nick Fairley, Gruden was showing a great "hustle" play by an Auburn lineman against Alabama. The play had Ingram running free to the endzone from about 40 yards out and he was chased down and stripped of the ball by the time he reached the 20 by said defensive lineman.

Granted I don't know if that lineman runs a 4:40 or not but Ingrams lack of speed really bothers me.

Since when is the best RB in any draft not worth at least the 15th pick? I would love to have him in Miami, but I think that either the Giants, Pats or maybe the Pack will want to trade up for him.


edit, the last 1st round RB not taken before the 15th pick was Steven jackson in 2004. he is still working out pretty well....

just looking at past drafts, and I know hindsight is brilliant, but the past drafts, RB's taken before 15...

2010 - Spillar & Matthews
2009 - Moreno
2008 - McFadden & Jonathon Stewart
2007 - Peterson & Lynch
2006 - Bush
2005 - Ronnie Brown, Benson, Williams
2004 - None, but Steven Jackson went at 24
2003 - again none, but Willis McGhee & larry Johnson went at 23/24
2002 - William Green & TJ Duckett went at 26/28
2001 - LT at 5.

Now, out of all of them, only LT, Steven Jackson, & AP have had so far stellar careers. A few have had solid careers, but if ingram is not at least equal to most of them at the end of his college career, then I give in....

At 15, he would be a terrific pick.

Actually what happened was Ingram was outrunning both Neiko Thorpe (who's a 4.4 cornerback) and the defensive end you're referring to (Antoine Carter) until safety Zac Etheridge who had the obvious angle, came across the field and had a clean shot at Ingram... who made Etheridge miss, which caused Ingram to begin stumbling and lose his balance... which is what allowed Carter to catch up to him from behind. Ingram doesn't fumble that football either if he's not on skates... that was just a nice play by Carter to reach around and try to punch that ball out...

The play is at the (2:00) minute mark here..

McGahee's knee was destroyed and he was taken 23rd overall.

From Wiki: "Prior to his knee injury in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_Fiesta_Bowl), McGahee was considered "a cinch top-five pick." Because McGahee's knee injury was still a major concern to professional scouts, the Buffalo Bills (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffalo_Bills) drafted McGahee as the 23rd overall selection of the 2003 NFL Draft (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_NFL_Draft)."
