NFL Draft Results: Saints Trade Up with Patriots, Select RB Mark Ingram

With the 28th overall pick in the NFL Draft, acquired via a surprising trade that sends their 2011 second round pick and their 2012 first round pick to the New England Patriots, the New Orleans Saints have selected running back and Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram from Alabama.


Ingram joins Cameron Jordan as the Saints other first round pick of the 2011 NFL Draft. And with those two picks, Sean Payton and the Saints front office have filled two crucial needs on both sides of the ball. Saints fans have got to be ecstatic right now and really loving their teams prospects for the upcoming 2011 season!
