San Diego Chargers select Melvin Ingram, Grade A+

This was a dream scenario for the San Diego Chargers. They needed to add another pass rusher, but no one expected Melvin Ingram to be on the board at this point draft.

Ingram already has experience playing with his hand off the ground which should ease his transition into the Chargers 3-4 defense. His versatility could also allow the Chargers to get a little more creative on defensive if they have any interest in morphing into more of a hybrid defense, rather than the pure 3-4 which they have run in recent years.
