Sports Illustrated:

24. New Orleans Saints -- Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama

With Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush possibly on the way out of town, they need a solid rusher to take pressure off Drew Brees. Ingram should be the first running back taken in April.

It's easy to hate Cam Newton because he played for Auburn and with the allegations hanging over his head... but you can't deny he's very talented. I think he can be a solid pro and if Vince Young can be a top 10 pick, I don't see why Newton couldn't. I'm interested into seeing how he throws at the combine.

Paea is hurt and it looks like his draft stock is dropping because of it. Could be a second round steal for someone.

24 DE Ryan Kerrigan Purdue Sr. 6-4 263
The Saints need more pass rush out of their front seven, and Kerrigan is a relentless worker who led the nation in tackles for loss last season. Unless there's a running back the Saints really love here, the talent-rich defensive line position should get New Orleans' first-round attention.

Newton won't survive in the NFL with his style of play; Defensive Lineman can run him down at the NFL level...

Had LSU had a better QB, Auburn isn't playing for the title...

Do explain. Besides Micheal Vick, most DL can run down any quarterback in this league. Cam Newton is physical, fast for a person his size, and has the body to handle an NFL hit. If anything, his style of play matches very well with NFL play. He's been working with a qb guru who's tutored Big Ben and received rave reviews.

I'm not sure this is relevant to our conversation.

I'm thinking he translates to a Dante Culpepper with a higher football IQ.

Maybe a Tebow type, or a Big Ben, but I think Ben was a much better passer coming out wasn't he?

Yes Ben was. Dante and Big Ben are good comparison... with more athleticism imo. We've only had a small sample size of Tebow, but if his game can translate to the pros, Newton's definitely can. While Newton only had one season at Auburn, I'd say he's the better passer of the two... which also gives him a leg up.
