His best season was in 2009 when he amassed 1,678 yards with 17 touchdowns, helping Alabama win the national championship and earning him the prestigious Heisman Trophy.
In the 2011 NFL Draft, Ingram became the first running back selected, taken by the Saints with the 28th overall pick. He spent eight years in New Orleans, surpassing the 1,000-yard mark rushing in two of those seasons. He also showcased his skills in the passing game, and in 2017, Mark and Alvin Kamara formed the first tandem of running backs in history to each gain at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage in a single season. Ingram's final season with the Saints was in 2018, having played 106 regular-season games for the team, amassing 6,007 rushing yards, and scoring 50 touchdowns.
