2012 NFL Draft: San Diego Chargers Select Melvin Ingram

| by

The San Diego Chargers got a steal with Melvin Ingram as the 18th pick in the NFL Draft. They will be surpised with his potential and desire.

The 6'1", 264-pounder tied Andrew Provence for South Carolina's single-season sack record in 2011 with 10 total sacks and also led the team with 15 tackles for loss.

He's a prototypical speed rusher and has the ability to play standing up or with a hand in the ground.

The Chargers just upgraded their defense with selecting Ingram.

Congrats to him and he is the second former Gamecocks player to go in the first round. Wowzo...
