I'm w/ you Matty, we have too many other pressing needs. I will say it would be tempting if Ingram is there. I think he's going to be a good one.

Re: Mark Ingram at #10?

First I would like to say I'm a Crimson Tide I would Ingram or Julio. This is probably a smokescreen to lay out trade bait to move back smart tho. If you notice 95% of mock drafts have Ingram going to Miami @ 15 (I think) maybe we get them to bite

Re: Mark Ingram at #10?

So ill chime in and give my 2cents. I got 2 main problems with this. Like most everyone else I think we got way too many needs to pick a running back over other positions, particularly that high in the draft. Which leads me to my bigger issue.

I don’t think you ever draft a running back that high, ever….. First I think rb is truly a position where its easier to find a late gem than any other position, and to go along with that I think we have one of the best rb evaluators ever in Mike Shanahan. Secondly I think the difference in talent from a first round pick to a mid round pick to a late round pick for running backs is not all that significant. Adrian Peterson is damn good, but he’s got his quirks and overall hes not significantly better than any other top 10 back in the league, most of which arnt top 10 picks nor 1st round picks. And lastly rb’s normally have a shortly “self life” then most other position. To contrast with that they also seem to have a shorter learning curve so they seem to be able to step in from almost day one have the potential make a impact right away. So since, in my opinion, this team aint a season away from being 1 dynamic player short from being a championship caliber team it would be foolish to “waste” a pick on a dynamic running back that likely will be slowing down by the time the Redskins are ready to routinely go deep in the playoffs.

Re: Mark Ingram at #10?

I'm a huge Tide fan, and i can tell you Ingram has the same condition that Da'Quan Bowers has.

Basically his knee is a ticking time bomb, and everytime he steps on the field, he is in tremendous pain and only his toughness and his spirit is what keeps him playing.

Da'Quan Bowers career will be over the next time he goes in for surgery. The long term goal is obviously not playing football, but being young and living a pain free life, with no handicaps. I have been told by more than one person that the type of knee conditions these men have, they will be lucky to play 2 seasons at best. Bowers is in a much worse way.

Just look up Reggie Williams knee on google, to see what happens if these guys try to keep playing with what should be a career-ending injury.

Re: Mark Ingram at #10?

NO!, QB, OL, or DL. With this in mind I'd almost say OL, or DL because we need an OL to protect whoever is QB and we need a NT or LB/DE for creating a better pass rush.

Report: Bad knee eliminates Mark Ingram from two draft boards | ProFootballTalk

But there have been rumors that the long-term stability of Ingram’s knee is tenuous. And NFL Network’s Mike Lombardi reported something that may substantiate that speculation on Wednesday evening’s Path to the Draft.

“I’ve had two teams tell me the knee is very bad,” said Lombardi. “He won’t be on their boards. These are teams that need running backs.”
No thank you. MS is known for getting really good quality out of mid to late round RB's, so I'll stick with that plan.

Re: Mark Ingram at #10?

I shudder at the thought of taking a RB at #10. You certainly have your rare exceptions with guys like Chris Johnson and AP, but in today's NFL, it just seems silly to spend a high pick on a RB.

Every year it's more and more of a committee approach in NFL backfields. Running backs typically don't last long, and defensive players are flying around crushing guys more and more every year. I just don't think the value is there like it used to be.

Re: Mark Ingram at #10?

If the Pats take him they will win a Super Bowl in a year or two. He is the type of player thats the missing piece on an already stacked team. Assuming their young defenders continue to develop.
