Ingram was taken with the number 28 overall pick in the 1987 NFL draft by the Giants out of Michigan State. Although somewhat diminutive for a wide receiver at 5' 10", he had the skill to produce on the field for New York.
Ingram's production would increase in each of his first four consecutive seasons. Between 1987 and 1991, his reception total would increase from two to 51. 1990 however, would see Ingram reach his highest receiving touchdown total, with five.
Following the 1990 season, the Giants marched through the playoffs en route to Super Bowl XXV. Ingram was a part of that march, starting in three games and hauling in eleven passes for 168 yards. And this play, made in Super Bowl XXV for a key first down, may be what most Giants fans recall about Mark Ingram.
In total, over six seasons with the Giants, Ingram caught 136 passes for 2,211 yards and 11 touchdowns.
