A lot of folks think the New Orleans Saints might take a running back in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Several mock drafts have Alabama’s Mark Ingram going to New Orleans at No. 24.

The conventional wisdom goes something like this: If Ingram, the former Heisman Trophy winner, slips past the Miami Dolphins at No. 11, he could plummet to the bottom of the first round, where the Saints would select him to ostensibly solve their rushing woes.
