Tate will be a more successful NFL back imo, he can still add some more weight to his frame and runs well at the pad level
Ingram will have a far better college career overall due to the horrid offenses for 2 of Tates years playing.
as of right now, the only reason Tate isnt being mentioned in the Heisman is because Auburn is 6-3.
however i have a feeling a strong performance against UGA and Bama will vault Ben Tate into the conversation but as per usual ESPN will probably pick Colt McCoy/Tebow regardless. I think Ingram benefits from the fact he also gets carries out of the wildcat ala McFadden whereas Ben Tate doesnt
I will bet money that Ingram will have a better NFL career than Tate does. Ingram is a true sophomore, Tate is a senior. Ingram has all the physical attributes you want in a RB. Burst of speed, vision, patience, quickness, balance. You name it, he has it. And he's so low to the ground he gets lost around his blockers. One of our LBs said it best how to tackle Ingram (I think it was Dont'a) He's so low to the ground you can't try to get lower than him, the best thing to do is jump on his back and wait for help.
