Running back, Ingram

Was watching parts of college games and saw this running back named Ingram. Can't recall the team, but he had a monster game and seemed almost unstoppable. Very difficult to bring down, great vision and acceleration to holes and creases. Anyone familiar with this guy and any opinions? I don't know what year he's in or even if he's draft-eligible next year, but looks like a real prospect!
he is the guy that replaced Glen Coffee at Alabama.not sure what year he is in though.
He's a sophomore.
Thanks! He looks real good!
He is a stud.
His father is Mark Ingram. He played Wr for the Giants in the late 80's and 90's. He played well last year too.
The reason why Glen Coffee left early because he was going to lose playing time to Ingram.

I don't doubt it. The kid looked incredible what little I saw of him, and he had a ton of yards in that game. Read his holes beautifully and hit them with great acceleration and power. Also, apparently very hard to bring down. Don't know what his top end speed is, but if it's 4.5 or better, this kid should be a great NFL prospect.
Ryan Mathews Fresno state in the forth round would be nice.
When I first posted this, no one was mentioning this guy in draft threads and I knew nothing about him. Since then, his name has popped up in Heisman talk and I've learned a bit more about him and it's all good. Speed, power, balance, vision, great blocker and a team guy. What more could you ask? Plus, he looks better than anyone else we've got (sorry, Frank included, though much of that may go to our line and not Frank; still Frank doesn't appear to be the same guy. Just not as big a drop as LT)
I'm very surprised more of you draftniks arent' high on this guy. I think he could be had, unlike Spiller who should be long gone by our first pick.

Wow I really don't know where to begin. You are comparing a college back to a pro back? Reggie Bush looked like the next coming of barry sanders in college but do you think he's better than Frank Gore Just because he looks awesome in collget doesn't mean he will be that way in the NFL.

Plus Ingram who plays for Alabama, is a sophmore and isn't eligible for the draft this year so thats probably why the "drafthits" aren't high on him yet.

Ingram does look good but I wouldn't crown him the best RB in college just yet.

Yes! I was watching the tv CBS last sat that Ingram look very good and solider a RB and damn strong his legs. some ppl safety were scare and missed to tackle with him cuz his damn strong his legs and strong running it. I like him alot.. I saw eric berry missed to tackle with Ingram's legs to ran it.. haha.. Berry realized that Ingram had very good his rock legs and rock running!

M. Ingram= Emmitt Smith dare I say in number, build and running style. He never takes the "big hit" because of his running style and usually keeps his leg churning after contact. He is a true sophomore and not eligible for the draft as previoulsy mentioned but he is good not sure if he is the best in the country yet but he is real close.

Well, that explains alot. You can tell I'm not real versed in the college game. More a casual fan. Too bad he's just a sophomore, but haven't sophomores entered the draft after their soph year before?
As for the "best running back in college", where did I say that? Plus, O-line woes notwithstanding, Frank just doesn't appear to be the old Frank anymore. We've had crappy O-line play before and Gore always managed to eke out the yards in often amazing fashion. Other than those 2 long runs, he's looked very average, as has Coffee. So, why not compare an exceptional college back to them in a favorable light? Comparing Ingram to a Frank in his prime would definitely be questionable, but I think not at this stage. After all, we've seen sghocking declines from one year to the next in otherwise superlative backs like LT and Sean Alexander. Frank may be on that track and we should prepare for it. Coffee isn't the answer.

That wouldn't happen if the draft were tomorrow. Matthews is a 1st-2nd round prospect now.
