drafting any RB in the 1st is a mistake.
RB was one of our biggest needs at the time. We had one year of Bush and we couldn't resign him because of his contract and we though PT would never play as a Saint again.
When Ingram fell to the bottom of the first round, it was considered a value at that point.
I'm not saying it was a great pick by any means and I wasn't thrilled about it at the time, but it wasn't a terrible pick either.
I remember wanting the Saints to draft Rashad Jennings in the second round that year. Ingram has at least turned out better than the guy I wanted them to pick.
I feel bad for that guy. Drafted by Jacksonville and then signed by Oakland.
