Hometown: Flint, MI (how did Michigan State, Michigan and Ohio State let this kid get away?)
40-yard dash: 4.45 seconds
Projection: 1st Round
— Ingram might seem “smallish” in height, but he makes up for that with his girth and speed… and that’s why he’s being projected in the first round. Ingram can not only run over defenders, he’s fast enough to run around them for a long way.
— Heisman Trophy winner in 2009 as a sophomore.
— In his three seasons with the Crimson Tide, Ingram racked up nearly 3300 yards and 42 touchdowns.
— As a sophomore, Ingram rushed for more than 1600 yards and 20 total TDs (17 rushing).
— Ingram appears to have all the tools to be an every-down back in the NFL, and he could be drafted anywhere from #10 to Washington all the way down to #32 with the Packers.
— Because he didn’t carry the entire workload at Alabama (shared carries with Trent Richardson), NFL scouts feel he doesn’t have the “wear and tear” on his body that some backs might.
— Several mock drafts now have Ingram going to Miami with the recent free agency concerns over Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown. Ingram would be a perfect fit in Miami with that power-running style.
