Both are short and stocky, compact, quick, and very powerful. Anyone else agree?

Actually Emmitt Smith is an uncanny comparison for Ingram. Both players have/had exceptional balance and very quick cuts. Neither were real burners, but Ingram has adequate speed. Both also have/had tree trunks for legs.

Not saying he's going to be as good as Emmitt, but they are very similar players, at least physically.

Not sure if Ingram can dance as well as Emmitt.

How does a heisman trophy winner at RB compare to a former WR who's in jail?

I feel like hitting you on the nose with a newspaper. Maybe it's my Jags bias but MJD is an all-around back with tremendous power, elusiveness, breakaway speed as well as being a great pass catcher and pass blocker. If you knew that MJD would become MJD he would be a top 5-10 lock, Gerhart is nowhere near that.

CFBP + Heisman = bust

Ingram = Peterson esque running with much better hands out of the backfield.

Seeing him play, i just think that that type of ability to start and stop so easily, and then the ability to just run through tackles.

Not even close. Peterson is much faster and runs upright. Ingram is stocky and keeps a low center of gravity. Also i don't quite know if Ingram is any type of receiver out of the backfield

Ingram had 30+ catches this year and looks great coming out of the backfield.

yah, but i just see that kind of balance when i see ingram run, but your right, he has more power to him, alot because of his center of gravity being lower, and i saw Ingram catch a few passes out of the backfield.

Most of what I saw were screens and flare passes. I haven't seen him break down an LB 1 on 1, but I didn't watch every game they played. Not saying he can't do it, just haven't seen it myself yet

Ingram runs with the intensity of Peterson. Even his little juke is like him... keyword: like

The attribute that made Emmitt great was his exceptional vision. It helped offset the fact that he really wasn't fast at all. I'm sure Ingram has at least good vision and is probably a little faster than Smith.

I don't think he will be on par with Peterson, but he will be a very good back in the NFL.

I think Cedric Benson if I have to pick a pro. Personally I think after watchin tonight he is a blend of Emmit and Cedric.
Doesnt have bigtime break away speed. But has the balance and vision to get 10-20 yards after contact and can lower his shoulder for the big hit.

He's good. But Trent Richardson is special. Richardson could win the Heisman next year. I think he's better than Ingram actually.

Ingram admitted Richardson is more advanced at this stage than he was as a freshman. He agrees with you lol.
I think Richardson will get his chance when Ingram leaves.

He reminds me a lot of Marion Barber.

i see the lateral quickness of rice with the power of mcgahee. Not a ravens fan those just are the best comparisons. I think when you throw his power into the equation you get somewhere around the range of a slightly slower frank gore.

My roommate and were saying the exact same thing about him watching highlights this past week. Barring injury I can't see how Ingram won't be a good pro back at the very worst.

Mark Ingram compares to another Alabama running back...

Plus, I think Mark Ingram passed the 3rd grade.

This, Richardson is a way better player than Ingram.

unlike MJD and Ray Rice I don't see Ingram as that same sort of pocket rocket. He has a very nice wiggle about him a good burst and good leg drive I like him quite a lot compared to jonathan stewart

granted theres almost 20 lbs between them but style wise i see them as very very similar

I am not impressed with Ingram like everyone else is. I just don't see anything special. I've seen alot better RB's in college this year. One was Dion Lewis.

And he's no Emmitt Smith. When Reggie Bust was winning Heisman everybody was sleeping on DeAngelo Williams and he turned out the better pro. Anyway, he was compared to E.Smith and it made more sense to me.

Emmitt Smith wins. Thomas Jones I can see. Peterson, MJD..absolutely not.

Gotta go more with the Emmit Smith comparison that has been dropped by several people, they run and look so similar on the field in terms of their style and size. Ingram just doesn't have the ferocity and explosion I see in MJD or even Ray Rice he seems much more of a patient guy with amazing vision like Emmit..although I do think he's faster than Emmit was.
