With the exception of Adrian Petersen(todays NFL) a RB needs a decent OL. Our has struggled the last few years. A new OL coach will hopefully fix that. Bicknell prefers the zone blocking scheme which requires a RB to have vision and be able to cut then go, Mendy is that type of back. But we may lose him in free agency but if we are able to keep him he would excel in that type of line blocking scheme.
I think Ingram is under utilized in N.O. He is the type of back who needs to get 20 plus carries a game to be effective. He has good feet and may be a decent back in the future, however, this team is better off drafting kid in the mid rounds (Latimore or Gillisee) than trading for some other teams under utilized player. We struck lightening in a bottle with Jerome, but the Saints aren't the Rams and are not going to let a talented player leave via trade because they have "too" many backs.

Never said take him in the first, just said I'd rather draft him (Lacey) than sign Ingram. For what it's worth I've seen plenty of mock drafts that have him dropping to the Steelers in the second. If he's not available, I'll take Gillislee, Ball, or Taylor in whichever round their value dictates.

You are absolutely right.

Woodley is going nowhere. I have a feeling he has something to prove and will come into camp in shape and ready to play this year. Ingram is a stiff. Pretty simple to figure that out. Don't have to watch the games to know that Ingram never plays. He never plays for a reason. He sucks.

There are some good options at RB, no reason to move up, or move back to get one.

Trade down and pick him up in round #2, or wait further in the draft.
