But totally agree, we still need front seven help on defense, interior offensive line with those Day 1 and 2 picks...
SP could not send his pick up any faster if Mayfield was there.

Lol by all accounts Mayfield isn’t falling past the Jets at 3.

Where does that leave Ingram? This FO will not let Ingram go until the reason to is clear.

the reason to let ingram go would be a trade, trade 1st rd picks with pats and get a 2nd for him. deal done. rbs are a dime a dozen.

David Johnson
Tevin Coleman
Jordan Howard
Darren Sproles
Kamara
K Hunt
Dion Lewis

Good value can be found in later rounds on quality RB's. Philly won the SB with a nice duo of Ajayi & L Blount (both drafted in lower rounds). Pass on a RB in the 1st round.

Go get you another big ugly (offensive lineman) or DT if they are the best available player on your board at 27.

Running backs that know the Saints offense and can contribute in every phase (running, receiving, pass blocking) are not that plentiful.

Given that Ingram gets the lions share of touches for the offense, even in games he shouldn't, he's not going anywhere.

Nobody is giving up a 1st or 2nd for Ingram. If the best player on the board is a RB and no good trade offers are there then take him if he is a pure runner.

Ingram has suffered injuries during his career. His age is getting up there and his contract escalating. Im all for keeping him but you've got to be looking a couple of years down tbe line

Let him play out his last year. It's a whole new year next year.
