Melvin Ingram....its Meant To Happen

45 posts in this topic

Don't know where he fits in the defense, not a true 4-3 end, maybe he can play OLB and then DE on third downs

Rivera is a guy that likes to give multiple looks/formations. A guy as versatile as Ingram would be a boon to our defense. He can rush the passer from pretty much any place you put him.

I'm definitely on the Melvin Ingram wagon. There isn't a player in this draft that is more versatile than that man. I mean, did you watch the tape? What didn't he do?

Ingram has the speed, awareness, and instinct to play rush linebacker.

Ingram has the strength, hand technique, and agility to play defensive end.

Ingram has the power, experience, and toughness to even line up at defensive tackle.

And like chknwing said, we have experienced in the 3-4 before and we could be making the permanent switch soon. He can do whatever you tell him to do, and excel at it.

At 276 lbs, I just don't see this guy anywhere near the DT position in the NFL. However, I do like what they could do with him off the edge rushing the passer. Would not be disappointed at all if he were our pick.

I've definitely jumped on the Ingram bandwagon recently. For me, if Claiborne somehow falls, take him..but if he doesn't Ingram is our guy!

More than a few people available at #9 that I'd be happy with, and Ingram is definitely one of them.

I like Ingram. I just think as a 4-3 base team it's a harder fit to make. If we were a 3-4 base team I would be all over it.

Agree. He fits better with someone like Pitts, Packs, or Jets.

We would not be doing a favor for us or Ingram by drafting him. He's not a 4-3 end. Hes more of a 3-4 olb imo and if we were going DE, I'd rather have Coples.

But I'd still be happy with him.

People are in love with the stature of coples compared to actual play. Ingram is a duplicate,size wise, of Charles Johnson...but i do see him as more of a Pass edge ruser, Aldon Smith kind of guy...

....so with that said whats not to like?! He is way more safe than Coples IMO...we just have the Everette Brown burn fresh here and Eric Norwood(Gamecock) was a star in the SEC who has a slow nfl start...but neither were the same prospect or as highly regarded as Ingram.

Norwood is a tweener and Everette Brown slipped terribly before the draft with major red flags...

Eric Norwood

Antwan Applewhite

How many tweeners does a 4-3 team need?

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
