Keaontay Ingram Goes To the Cardinals in Round 6

From NFL.com

Running back prospect with adequate size and quickness who leaves you wanting more. Ingram was noticeably quicker and more elusive at a lighter weight after transferring to USC from Texas. He sees the interior clearly but can be too content to bounce runs wide rather than continuing to probe between the tackles. He’s a below-average run finisher but will create additional yardage with quick decision-making at times. Ingram can handle an occasional pass and blitz pickup, but he’s not ready to be a third-down option. There aren’t any real standout qualities, but he should be competitive in a camp.

The Arizona Cardinals needed help at running back and get it that has some size at 6’ 221 pounds and wiggle.

Welcome to the desert, Keaontay.

I have a question I really would like to see addressed: Is it better to have three early rounds stars drafted, or three late rounds scout team players drafted?
I’m looking at quality and my Ucla “friends “ are looking at quantity.

Rialto & RJJ, The draft results for SC are nothing to be proud of. They are far short of what they should be. I am excited as anyone to have LR on board & I think SC will be relevant quickly. But if there is a concern it is on the defensive side of the ball. OK had 5 defensive players drafted but none in the first round. In fact OK did not have a single player drafted in the first round. If SC is really going to have a legitimate shot at a national championship LR has to do… Read more »

We are very lucky that the Portal exists. Otherwise, given how badly the Cat was allowed to ruin SC football, we might be “planting 90 foot bamboo” like Chocolate Chip did at UCLA. It was just amazing what a mess the SC 2021 roster was in. Given the disaster SC football was under The Cat, Drake London’s feat is simply amazing.

Still think the best two football stories in the last 12 months have centered on SC: first the hiring of LR and second, someone was actually dumb enough to hire The Cat. And, we agree on Chocolate Chip – his best combination of team and schedule for the foreseeable future was last year. And, he bombed it after totally tanking the program for three years. For doing that, he got an extension! Love it.

Trojan 5, I totally agree. A draft to be proud of was GA’s. 15 players drafted and 5 first rounders, all on D. SC in the past was near that level of talent. I doubt there were 5 draftable players on the ENTIRE roster that the Cat left to LR. it is clear to me that LR is now in the process of building back that type of roster, with at least 30 draftable players out of the 85.

I agree if you are talking PR; but, if you are talking team quality; I still think I would rather than 15 low draft picks over two high ones and one low one.

I get what you are saying, basically, the more you get drafted the better your team was, talent at least, no matter when they get drafted. W/L that’s coaching.

Answer is you need both. It I had to choose, I would take quantity. Look at the 2021 Trojans. They had probably five or six NFL caliber players on the roster, with one of them being the best NFL eligible WR in the nation. UCLA had about double that number. We lost that ONE very high quality player (London) and our entire team went into the crapper.

For me, three things stood out from this draft. First, Texas did not have one player drafted. That is an amazing feat. UT was in worse shape than SC and it shows just how great a collegiate player the QB that left last year was (Sam Ehrlichson(?)) Second, that Donte is now on thin ice. Neither Steele nor ITS were drafted. Steele was a 5 star out of HS and ITS a 4 star. Quite clearly, they were not developed. This has to fall on Donte. He is a great recruiter. He must now step up his coaching. Let’s see… Read more »

Allen, I think you misread me in part. I never blamed SC for Jack Jack being a 5 star talent and a 5 star knucklehead. He was both. The fact is that ASU helped turn that knucklehead into a CB who got drafted. I think that was a major accomplishment. Looking at it, the Helton no accountability and no discipline culture was a disaster for a kid like Jack Jack. And, the fact is that ASU got Jack Jack (and its other CB) drafted and SC got neither Chris Steele (a better talent than Jack Jack) nor ITS (also a… Read more »

Interesting read. SC has yet to produce a pro level performing CB since I think Nickel Roby who played for the Rams – he was undrafted but had a good career.
