The 5-foot-9 Ingram shed about 10 pounds before the NFL Scouting Combine -- down to 215 pounds -- and told reporters he felt "more explosive" at a lighter weight. He helped ease concerns about his speed at Alabama's pro day last month, improving upon his 4.61-second 40-yard dash at the combine with runs of 4.53 and 4.56 seconds. He also looked outstanding in position drills.
Ingram is considered the best of this year's running back class. He didn't post sensational numbers as a junior, but carried the ball 271 times for 1,658 yards during the Crimson Tide's national championship run in 2009, which included seven games with 20 or more rush attempts.
