South Carolina DL/OLB Melvin Ingram is getting more buzz a couple of weeks out from the NFL Combine. It’s because there are rumblings that his 40 time is going to push him up draft boards even further.
Already considered a lock to be a mid-first round pick, Ingram could leapfrog the likes of Alabama’s Courtney Upshaw when it comes to the top pass rushers as he has every bit the power to his game as Upshaw and might offer more speed and athleticism. According to DraftInsiders those close to Ingram and the South Carolina program are expecting Ingram to run in the 4.6s.
That would be pretty impressive for a 6’2″ 276-pounder. If he pulls it off and has a solid workout otherwise some believe he could vault himself into the top 10. Buffalo picks 10th overall.
