Welcome to the first installment of many videos aimed at taking a closer look at the incoming rookies in 2011.
When I was a struggling screenwriter (emphasis on 'struggling') in Los Angeles, one thing which was drummed into my head was 'show me, don't tell me'.
A lot of draft analysis is us - the analysts - talking at you, the fan. But you can only hear 'stiff hips', 'my ball mentality' and 'road grader' so many times before the words lose all meaning. It's impossible to keep up with all the terms and buzzwords used every year and for many fans it can be hard to remember what they all mean.
So rather than tell you what I see, I'm going to show you.
This a work in progress but for a first effort I think it came out OK.
A few more words after the video below. By the way, not only can you comment in the comments section, but you can comment right on the timeline of the actual video as well.
So as I said, I really do like what Ingram brings to the table. He does many things well and while he does lack that break away speed you like to see in an elite back, he's got more than enough talent to play very well for a very long time in the NFL.
I do believe that in the not-impossible-but-unlikely event that Ingram is there at the end of the first that the Packers should think hard about drafting him. Running back isn't a pressing need but depending on who else is on the board, he could be exceptional value at 32.
