Melvin Ingram   #54 DE

Height: 6-2   Weight: 247   Age: 29

Born: 4/26/1989 Hamlet , NC

College: South Carolina

Experience: 7th season

High School: Richmond HS [Rockingham, NC]









Draft 2012

Pick No.18

Selected By: San Diego Chargers

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 18 (18)

Pick Analysis: Ingram is one of the most athletically gifted prospects in this year's class. He came to South Carolina as an inside linebacker and has since played in various positions across the front seven. Ingram's motor, athleticism and technique allow him to bring dynamic playmaking ability to an NFL defense, whether he lines up at defensive tackle or defensive end. Some believe he could be moved to outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme to rush the passer and overpower offensive tackles. There is a chance he continues rising up boards and is selected in the first round of the draft.
