Alabama's Pro Day gave top prospect Mark Ingram one more chance to impress his future employer. With Ron Rivera (Panthers) and John Fox (Formerly Panthers, now Broncos) watching closely, Ingram confirmed his knee injury was fully healed when he ran a 4.47 40-yard dash. That was an improvement from his time of 4.62 at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Also for Alabama was defensive tackle Marcel Dareus, wide receiver Julio Jones and Wonderlic-expert quarterback Greg McElroy. Jones and McElroy are both recovering from injuries and did not work out. Dareus put to rest all doubts about his high ankle sprain he played last season with and there are some who believe he could be a better player than Nick Fairley at Auburn.
The Falcons likely have no interest in Ingram with Michael Turner and Jason Snelling rostered but with wide receiver help a top priority this offseason, Jones has the potential to be added later in the draft.
