1. Mark Ingram (6,267)
Saints RB from 2011-2018, 2021-Present)
With a late first-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Saints drafted the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, Mark Ingram. While it took Ingram a few years to put up dominant numbers, he finally showed he was worthy of a first-round pick during his fourth year in the league in 2014.
That year saw Ingram go for 964 yards and nine touchdowns. Two years later, he had 1,043 yards and six touchdowns and he built on that the very next year in 2017 with 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Ingram joined the Ravens in the 2019 season and had over 1,000 yards during his inaugural season in Baltimore. After his production declined in 2020, Ingram was cut and then signed with the Texans for 2021. He ended up back in New Orleans during the 2021 season and that’s when he was able to pass Deuce McAllister for the all-time leading rusher mark.
… so there you have it!
With Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara still on the roster, Ingram has a chance to build on his lead while Kamara has a chance to continue climbing up the ranks. Kamara should be able to climb into the top three as he’s only 29 rushing yards behind George Rogers for that three-spot so unless he gets injured, he should be able to jump into that spot after Week 1 of the 2022 season.
Those are the changes to watch for between now and the next time this article is updated.
