OG Ed Ingram
Until the recent signing of 5-star offensive tackle Will Campbell from Neville, LSU has struggled to recruit the top offensive linemen to Baton Rouge. This inability to recruit and develop top-end OL talent is magnified on NFL draft day.
In the last ten NFL drafts, LSU has had eight offensive linemen selected. Conversely, Alabama, known for its ability to recruit highly ranked offensive linemen, has had 15 offensive linemen chosen, including six first-rounders.
Ed Ingram was a four-year starter at LSU, amassing an impressive 33 starts with experience at both guard spots. Ingram’s game tape is notable for superior pass blocking skills but shows great technique on guard pulls in the run game.
Given Andrus Peat’s injury history and the underwhelming performance of former first-round pick Cesar Ruiz, Ingram would be an ideal target for the Saints in the middle rounds.
