Keaontay Ingram, RB
The Arizona Cardinals have a sticky situation at running back. James Conner played well enough to earn a Pro Bowl berth in 2021, but he remains injury prone. Behind Conner, you have the unproven Eno Benjamin and Jonathan Ward. Ward is mainly a special teamer, while Benjamin’s marginal production showed there might be better options out there.
Enter Ingram, despite not posting eye-popping numbers in college, was a consistent player with under 600 touches. This shows that he may have a lot of tread on his tires, and at 6’0, 215lb, he may have the size to handle carrying the rock should Conner go down and Benjamin’s production continue to stagnate.
This isn’t to say the Cardinals selected the next Terrell Davis (also a sixth-round pick who wore #30), but this is to say Ingram is in a pretty good position to become a significant contributor. Maybe he’ll get noticed by making a couple of big hits on special teams to start things off, just like Davis did.
