With the draft less than three weeks away, one of the players expected to be taken in the first round will finish out the process with a new agent.

Per multiple sources with knowledge of the situation, Alabama running back and 2009 Heisman winner Mark Ingram has parted ways with Rocky Arceneaux.

The reason for the move isn’t known.

Speculation as to Ingram’s new agent has centered on Jimmy Sexton and Joel Segal. Others may be in play, including (we’re told) Ingram’s father’s former agent from his playing days, Michael George f/k/a Michael Kevorkian.

Seriously, the guy’s last name was Kevorkian and he changed it, presumably thanks to Dr. Jack Kevorkian. George/Kevorkian’s last client of any significance was Ravens defensive end Michael McCrary.

It’s entirely possible that George/Kevorkian wasn’t even a certified agent when the NFLPA became the NFLPA*, ending all regulation of agents. With no body currently overseeing the process, anyone can be an agent.

Heck, even Dr. Jack Kevorkian could do it.
