This kid looks really great. I know we wanted a big blocking TE, however this kid might be what we thought LJ Smith was gonna bring to us.
NFL.com's scouting report says he's one of the best athletic players in the draft at his position. Florida considered him the best athlete in the football program.
At Hawthorne High School, Ingram was rated a four-star athlete and the 11th-best quarterback prospect in the nation by TheInsiders.com and was a member of that recruiting service's Hot 100 list. He also was listed as a four-star athlete and a Top 100 pick by Rivals.com, who rated him the third-best quarterback prospect, in addition to placing him on their Southeast Elite 88 list.
Ingram was ranked as the best quarterback and overall player on the GatorCountry.com Top 101 list. The two-time Class 1A All-State selection in both football and basketball, he threw for more than 1,400 yards and 22 touchdowns in 2003. For the hoops squad, he averaged more than 25 points per game as a shooting guard during his junior season.
I really think if this kid wasn't hurt his entire 2008 season he could've went mid to late 2nd round or early 3rd. He's humbled by his injury and can't wait to get here and play. I think this could be the TE we've needed.
I know i know blocking but we have a great O-Line this year and this kid will spread the field and can go over the middle.
This draft pick put the icing on the cake for me. Get excited cuz i think he's the real deal.
