Heisman Trophy winner. National champion. First-round pick.
Few running backs can claim the list of accolades that Baltimore Ravens’ Mark Ingram has accrued over his football career. Even fewer have made an impact in the NFL with the kind of numbers that Ingram has eight years into his professional career.
However, throughout his tenure with the New Orleans Saints, Ingram has been the thunder part of a ‘Thunder and Lightning' backfield. From 2011 to 2018, the Alabama product rushed the ball over 1,300 times and accounted for just under 40% of the team’s total rushing attempts. During his time in NOLA, Ingram was never considered to be a workhorse back, even as a former first-round pick; he was responsible for 50% of the team’s single-season carries just three times in eight years.
