With the 153rd overall pick the Eagles select TE Cornelius Ingram

21kentuckcy

With the 17th pick in the fifth round Eagles select TE Cornelius Ingram from Florida.

The 6'4, 245lb TE missed the entire 2008 season after tearing his ACL last August. He was seen as a major prospect before his injury last year. Ingram has great size, runs a 4.6 40, can leap. and can play a physical game. He was pretty much never asked to block. One of my draft guides here had him ranked as the 59th best player in the draft.

This pick reminds me a lot of the Jack Ikegwonou selection from last year. A highly touted player who suffered a pretty bad injury that dropped his stock. Even with his injury, some draftniks had Ingram projected as a 2nd or 3rd round pick.

Great scouting report on Ingram from Mile High Report.
