2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina
Ingram has decent size at 6'2'' and 276 pounds, but where he excels is the athleticism department. As shown by several incredible plays in 2011, the Hamlet, NC native is a top-notch athlete. He generally runs around a 4.80 in the 40-yard dash, but has been clocked as fast as 4.72 from that distance. His speed, though, is deceptive and offensive linemen probably think he can run a lot faster than his 40 times. Ingram has a quick first step and a great nose for the football, but he must improve his tackling and could add some bulk as he heads to the next level. While he looks like a third-round selection right now, Ingram could play his way into the second.
