    Why pass on Ingram?

    The Pats could have drafted Mark Ingram at 28 but they traded it away for picks. Ingram was a Heisman winning superstar at Alabama and the Pats need help at RB. What were they thinking?

    hey, why pick a potentially dominant Heisman Trophy winning RB that could compliment your HOF QB at pick 28 when you can trade out to get MORE draft picks that you'll trade away to get more draft picks that you'll trade away to get more dr.....................ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!

    Re: Why pass on Ingram?

    Considering he's already having issues with his knees and that the NFL is moving towards a pass-first league, it's bad value to draft a running back that high. We have a solid starter in Benny and we have Woody. We can plug in the third RB slot by signing a free agent or drafting someone in the lower rounds. Both the free agent class and the draft class (still) is filled with options. We made the least risky, most solid pick there was and it's Solder. They've had insight on him for a long time because someone from the Patriots staff has in's with Colorado University. Tough kid, physical monster, smart kid (medical background and high GPA + high Wonderlic score). It was a no-brainer. A running back, on average, will last you 4-6 seasons at best while a solid offensive lineman can fill that hole in your line for a decade. Considering the money, you're paying the 17th or 28th pick, which would you prefer?

    You take advantage of another team's desperation (the Saints did not want to pay Bush $11 million) and parlay that into a second rounder this year and a first rounder next year. We had four picks in the first two rounds going into last night and we still have four picks in the first two rounds going into tonight. Nothing changed there, just the rounds the picks were in.

    Re: Why pass on Ingram?

    The PATS running game is an adjunct to the passing game and last season that adjunct was pretty effective.  As apdynasty23 said, we can pick up another back for the mix in FA.  I'd prefer to use the picks for other needs.  However based on experience, (this year being no exception), I have no idea what BB would prefer.

     Maybe the Pats didn't think he was the best RB in the draft, or maybe just not a good value in the 1st. There are a lot of options still out there.

    TRANSLATION:

    IT IS USELESS TO TRY TO RUN ON THE JETS SO WE WILL JUST STICK TO THE PASSING GAME.

    They made a better pick to protect Brady.  An OL who will be around for 10 years versus a RB who will be around for 2-3 years

    1. RBs are generally a bad value in the 1st round?

    2. Another back (e.g. Ryan Williams) + 1st Round pick /> Ingram?

    3. Based on the Pats' scouting, there was no one on the board around 28 that presented great value for the Patriots system?

    If they can resign makins and with 2 guys 6' 8"(Volmer & Solder), you can't even see Woody until he's already run by you.......

    Would've rather seen them draft Muhammad Wilkerson. Fell right into their laps.

    Posted by bertie-wooster2[/QUOTE]They were thinking the leading rusher last Year in the NFL was Arian Foster  a Free Agent. There is more value at RB in the 2nd and third round.OLB DE and OG are better values in the second round. BB will probably wait until round 3. BJGE and Woodhead have done a good job.
