Scouting Report: Strengths
- Good athlete who put up a surprising 5.02 40 yd dash at the combine
- Improved each year in college - 2021 was a high point and looks like the new norm
- Excellent in pass protection - well-developed skillset and nice instincts to pick up blitzes and stunts
- Latches onto pass rushers with strong big hands well and steers them away from the QB
- In the running game he has the drive and power to get down and get into the defender's pads and force them backward
- Gets good leverage in pass protection and anchors well to be solid when bull rushed. Excellent as a puller
- Above-average football smarts and general intelligence. Plays with a nasty streak
- Has the feet to adjust when he anticipates what's coming. Effective trapping and bends at the knees with adequate core strength to absorb the bull rush. Can clear a path at the second level if he hits the target.
- Nice balance demonstrates the ability to pass off stunts when in pass protection, smartly moving from one defender to the other
- Sells trap block and can turn to seal. Fluid gets to and adjusts at the second level.
- Versitile enough to play either guard spot. Played on the right side as a freshman and since then on the left
- Plays with nice instincts and agility to seal the edge. Aggressive extending with power to punch and looks comfortable in space.
- Has average height with a narrow base out of his stance. Needs to get stronger in his lower half to anchor at the point of attack.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.
- Doesn't have elite explosiveness and can be a step slow in space
- Has been in trouble legally (which ultimately ended up with no action taken) but resulted in a year's suspension
- Needs to work on his technique as a run blocker, using more consistent leverage and continuing to move his feet.
- Loses leverage battles and plays with high pad level. Can be late off the snap.
- Finesse blocker who doesn't have a wide base. May need to put on weight and get stronger.
- Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
Scouting Report: SummaryEd Ingram is a decent pro prospect who has good overall although not exceptional athleticism, good long speed and is instinctive in pass protection, and gives up few sacks. He however isn't particularly strong and has a less than an ideal frame and as a result is more of a finesse player, especially in the running game
Despite Ingram's negatives, we expect his pass protection skills to generate significant interest in the 2022 NFL Draft, and will most likely be selected in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
