    Mark Ingram

    ok we know BB has had his share of draft day misses, but we got to give him props on his good moves, like this one. He passed on the opportunity to select Mark Ingram in the first round, trading the pick to New Orleans for a 2nd rounder (Shane Vereen) and a first rounder (Donta Hightower). Despite being critisized for passing on a back who has "the potential to be a 1500 yard rusher for the next 10 years" (per bleacher report). Now reports out of New Orleans are the Saints may be looking to trade Ingram due to limited production. Nice move Bill.

    "Saints general manager Mickey Loomis remains suspended through the team's Nov. 5 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, so a trade of Ingram, a first-round pick in 2011, is an unlikely, but not far-fetched notion. Ingram has played in just 17.94 percent of the Saints' offensive snaps this season and has 133 yards of total offense (134 rushing, -1 receiving) with one touchdown in 2012. Ingram is signed through the 2014 season and his salaries in 2012 ($712,125, of which $377,007 remains) and 2013 ($1,049,250) may be fully guaranteed, but are appealing figures for a potential three-down back."

    Good Find Quagmire.  Just goes to show just how difficult the Draft Process can be.  Playing for a "Semi Pro Team"  (Alabama) and winning the Heisman Trophy is no guarrantee of success in the NFL.  

    In the mean time, Vereen and Hightower and then this year's undrafted Brandon Bolden appear to be excellent picks by BB.

    Ingram was a good no call because the trade essentially gave us Jones but initially trading Ingram for Vereen and choosing Ras in the early 2nd hasn't exactly worked out either. Makes you wonder what they could have gotten for a pick if they traded #28 and #33 for a 1st in 2012 instead of taking Ras with #33 and Vereen with the additional pick from #28. Overall though getting Jones made the trade a huge win for the Pats

    Well honestly I don't think Belichick would of selected him anyway. To me Ingram looked a little too much like Benny - except with more power. Nothing special when he came out and he had a knee injury. Honestly I do think he was pretty much drafted where he should of been though - the draft is the biggest crap shoot going.

    Yep, I don't know what it is with all the problems at CB Drought.  The last real "Money" CB was Ty Law.  He would have caught the Interception that Assante dropped in the SB.  :)

    Thats a good theory but I think that no one wanted to trade with BB no matter what the offer. Other GM's and HC's got tired of the Pats having so many draft picks. The only way to purge them is to make the Pats actually use them. You watch what happens to Fischer and the Rams. They have a boatload of picks and the only way to even things up is to make them use them.

    Re: Mark Ingram

    I was thinking that the other day. At the time a lot of fans wanted Ingram but BB passed. Ridleys the better back it looks like. Ingram won the heisman as a sophomore , he looked like Emmit Smith in his prime at the time. During Ingrams JR year he hurt his knee and hasn't been the same. This was a great non pick by BB. Saban may have tipped BB off on Ingrams decline and future prognosis .
