The Scouting Combine barely has started, but at least one of the participants already has been invited to attend the event for which all of the players are preparing.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells us that 2009 Heisman winner Mark Ingram has received his golden ticket to Radio City Music Hall, site of the 2011 draft. Ingram, we’re told, has not yet accepted the invitation.
Regarded as the top tailback in the class, it’s unclear how high he’ll go. He’s virtually certain to hear his name called before the end of the first night of the draft, which includes only the first round.
You’ll hear Ingram’s name called very early, and often, in his Thursday interview with PFT Live.
