Pats Talking to Alabama RB Mark Ingram – Who They Reportedly Love


Peter King of SI.com reports someone who knows Bill Belichick well told him the other day his MO for this draft will be like it’s been for many others: Approach a pick like he wants to trade it, wait until there’s a minute left on the clock, and if he doesn’t have a good offer, turn in a name to pick.

This person said he thinks this could be the case at number 28, with Mark Ingram on the board. He’ll have Ingram in his back pocket — the Patriots love him — and if they don’t get a good offer from a team moving up (probably moving up for a quarterback), Belichick could say, “Turn in the card for Ingram.”

Mark Ingram tweeted earlier today that he’s, “Headed to the airport, off to Boston… Another week living in the airport.” He will talk to the Pats today, maybe a sign of things to come on April 28th.

  1. Mike Perkins says:

    Have you heard the rumors that a couple of teams have taken Ingram off their draft boards because of knee issues?

    I think I’d be surprised if they take him in the first, hoping he’d fall to the second.

    But given that Belichick philosophy, there is no way he uses the first pick of the second round right?
