Cornelius Ingram To Philadelphia

New, 10 comments

One of my favorite Gators of all time is heading for a team I hate. TE Cornelius Ingram was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 153rd pick in the draft. Ingram would be a perfect fit for the Eagles, where Ingram could blossom in the West Coast offense used by Donovan McNabb and coach Andy Reid. Not just that, Ingram will be part of a group of targets that includes Mizzou's Jeremy Maclin (Philly's first pick), and speedster DeSean Jackson. Ingram could be used in the same manner as at Florida, where elite outside guys allowed CI space to work inside and find mismatches. Going to an established team may hurt in that he won't get to play much, but remember CI is still a raw guy. A year with minimal action could pay off later.
