TE for the Patriots? Belichick works out Florida's Cornelius Ingram

via graphics8.nytimes.com

I'm sure there's a lot of demands on a head coach.  Since Scott Pioli departed there's probably been more demands.  I think we'd be hard pressed to find a better "scout" for the Patriots than Bill Belichick.  As head coach, there's probably noone better qualified than he to evaluate talent.

So, when Belichick uses a chunk of his precious to privately evaluate a player, you can bet there's interest.  Thus is the case with Florida's TE Cornelius Ingram.  You won't hear that name a lot because he's labeled by many draft boards as a second or third rounder.  At 6-4 245 lbs, he's a bit small for a TE and needs to bulk up to shed blocks.  Many of his deficiencies, as reported by draftcountdown.com, might be fixable.  Maybe the kid has a chip on is shoulder and has something to prove, the kind of kid that will work harder than everyone else.  Who knows. 

When Bill schedules a private workout, there's interest.  Here's hoping Bill turn him into something dangerous.
