The opposite of my mock dream drafts: a combination of poor draft strategy, players I would not like to see taken and poor value picks, all somewhere within the realm of possibility.

Round 1: Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama

Only dynamic running backs who can transform an offense should be taken in the first round.? Take a look around the NFL.? How many of the top running backs are as slow as Ingram?? People in the Ingram camp talk about how he?s a smart, determined, powerful runner.? That?s fine, but he?s not someone I?d want to take in the first round.? There are always running backs available later in the draft that will have as much of an impact.? But there are still some people who argue that the Giants should consider Ingram.

Mark Ingram, a star player on the New York Giants 1991 Super Bowl-winning team faces nearly 10 years in prison, when he is sentenced today for bank fraud and money laundering.

In 2005 Ingram pled guilty to laundering money he believed to be proceeds from narcotics deals, as well as bank fraud for cashing counterfeit checks. Federal prosecutors in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and in New York said Ingram cashed more than $300,000 in phony checks and laundered another $200,000.

Although Ingram pleaded guilty nearly three years ago, prosecutors say he has sought to revoke the plea and has hired and fired at least three court-appointed attorneys in that effort.
