Jake Ingram waits for the NFL draft

About how he’s been working with a friend in his free time with side jobs like tree cutting or handy work, Jake Ingram said:
“It’s always good to get in some hard work.” (HSB)

About waiting for the draft, Ingram said:
“Before I wasn’t really thinking about (the draft), but it’s getting closer and I am starting to get a little anxious. To get a call and have a team have enough confidence to use a draft pick to select me, that would be unbelievable. Especially as a long snapper.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Ingram walked on at Hawaii with visions of contributing as a defensive end. But Jones saw value in Ingram’s ability and reserved his action for punts and place-kicks. While it took Ingram a while to embrace his specialized role, he is now regarded as the top long snapper in this year’s class.”

About how NFL teams have been contacting him about Ingram, Jake’s agent Wynn Silberman said:
“They’ve been in constant contact with us. Every team I’ve spoken to is very confident he’s going to get drafted.” (HSB)

About how he can’t do much to change his draft status anymore, Ingram said:
“Now I have to just wait and see what happens.” (HSB)
