I see Ingram as a good, potentially great nfl player, but not a great enough prospect for this team to take at 10 given the defensive talent in the draft.
I think Ingram is a definite talent, and I would enjoy anointing him the heir to Portis. freddyg12 is right though... he is not a once a decade back. There were several experts that even questioned if he was even the best back at Georgia this past season. So.... to answer the original question of this thread, regrettably "no".

I could start a list of RB's that got it done without a great O-line. Lets say we upgrade the D-Line, what do we do about a QB, RB, WR? Either way we need both. Personally, I would rather start on the O side of the ball.

Get me AJ Green at WR, Ingram at RB, Newton or Locker at QB to start.

Start that list and chances are it doesn't go past 3 names. (sanders, campbell, dickerson are the only three that come to mind)

So you are going to remotely compare this kid to those 3 I mentioned?...lol




Also, I don't feel there is a QB worth a 1st round selection this year. It's bad when Mel Kiper even says he doesn't feel any of these QBs in the draft are "franchise QBs". LOL @ your Cam Newton. If anything, I think I've shown enough material to prove my point about red flags, and this kid has a shit ton of them. I'll say it again, the team that drafts Cam Newton expecting this kid to play in the first 2 years are going to be set back 4-5 years. Let's hope it's not this franchise, we know all too well what having a lame QB can do for your franchise. (shuler, ramsey, campbell, brunell)

Portis can go on that list. that makes 4

Guess we watch it play out and see.

BTW, I would rather Locker than Newton but we got to get started somewhere...

Wrong. We had a good offensive line (Samuels, Kendal, Thomas, and Jansen ring a bell??) We see what happened to Portis once that OL started to falter. (Remember 2009 season??)

I think Locker fits our system better than Newton (or any other one for that matter), but I wouldn't value him as a 1st rounder either.

Portis degenerated because he was overworked. But even this past season the few games he played injured and all, he was able to make yardage with our current front. Now imagine what a fresh kid can do. Torain is "good" but he is a injury magnet already.

As far as the 4 you mentioned, they were good but nothing great and we were bitching back then to. I am still convinced we have what we need to get the job done. +/- a few. Without a good/great QB,RB,WR core, we go nowhere fast.

WOW! I'm amazed that no one slammed me on that one. I know that Ingram played at Alabama. Some said he may not even be the best back for 'Bama. I'll accept "dumb a$$" of the day.

Duly noted. Anyone think any of these rumors are famous Shanny smoke screens? I hear tell people saying something about Gabbert being taken #2, any credence to that anyone may know of?

Re: Mark Ingram at #10?

Wouldn't want him at 10, but if we could manage a trade with say NE and get their second, I wouldn't mind taking him at 17, and use that second rounder on P Taylor and our 2nd on a QB T Taylor.

Tyrod? I'm a Hokie (& a VCU Ram, just had to get that in!) but no way is he worth a 2nd round pick.

Hope our #10 can stop this guy, If he lands on the Giants, we will regret not picking him up. I would love to see this guy in B/G
