The Saints re-entered the first round of the NFL draft at No. 28, trading with the Patriots to acquire Alabama RB Mark Ingram.

The Saints relinquished their No. 56 selection in this year's draft and their first round selection in 2012 for the '09 Heisman Trophy winner. Ingram became the first running back off the board with the selection.

In PFW's 2011 Draft Preview book, Nawrocki says Ingram is "a well-built, motivated, productive workhorse who was slowed by injury as a junior. Does not have the flash, speed or suddenness of elite playmakers, but is a steady, solid bellcow with the type of hard-nosed, competitive mentality to handle 20 carries per game at the next level and consistently move the chains."
