RB Ingram to slip out of the first round?

If I've learned one thing in my years as an NFL Draft analyst it is that when several of us come to a consensus that Player A will be drafted by Team A at any spot other than the No. 1 overall, we're all usually wrong.

This may prove to be the case again this year.

Many draft prognosticators, including Chad Reuter and I , have pegged the Miami Dolphins to select Alabama running back Mark Ingram with the No. 15 overall pick. This selection, in fact, may be the most agreed upon pick in the entire first round, including No. 1 overall, at this point.

Which is all the more reason why I decided to investigate it further.

Though sources throughout the league certainly recognize the Dolphins' need at running back, they'd be surprised if Miami took Ingram.

One source simply didn't feel that Ingram was worth a first round pick -- something I argued vehemently .

Others thought Ingram was a "legitimate first round player," but cited the decreasing value of running backs in today's NFL as reason enough why Ingram would not only slip past Miami, but perhaps out of the first round, entirely.

"I agree with you. He's a helluva player, but history has proven that you can find running backs later in the draft," one high-ranking team source said.

"Are you really getting the bang for your buck by taking a back in the first round?"

Ingram is NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated running back and No. 12 player, overall . We view him as a first round value. Apparently, several teams, on the other hand, do not.

In my humble opinion, Ingram should be near the top of the Falcons draft board.

The way I see it, Ingram shouldn't be any lower than No. 12 on the Falcons draft board. I would personally put him in the Top 6 or 7.

If he's there at No. 27, there isn't going to be a better value in the draft.

I would be shocked if Ingram even got close to 27. It's a no brainer if Ingram is available you take him.

Couldn't agree more, I'd be shocked if he's sitting there, and I'd also love to have him.... stop filling my head with draft day fantasies Pudge!!!! I need to prepare myself for a boring developemental DE that won't produce for 2-3 years.
