Alright, i just watched a bunch of tape on Melvin, and I'n getting a little worried now. There is no question that Melvin dominates at the 3T and 1T. But he has not shown anything close to dominance against T's. Out of his 10 sacks this year, only 1 was in the 5T. I don't know if his transition to OLB will be good if he hasn't even shown any threat from the outside. Check this tape:

He goes against a NFL caliber T in Cordy Glenn, and he does not even pressure the pocket at all. Anyone else worried? What do we do with this guy?!?!

Well if you watch nfl game tape of the best pass rushers in the league you will see that even the most dominant of rushers get blocked 70 or 80 % of the time. It usually are the most important downs where they can bring something extra to beat their blockers. Im not worried at all he has the athletic abilities to become a great player just need a little time like every rook !

I watched the video.

Keep in mind i really can't analyse game film haha. Not up to that level with American Football yet. Not with the line play anyway.

My opinion. From what i noticed.

In those first plays when he's on the edge he's getting double teamed, it is a run play though. He gets the pressure up the middle playing at DT. A lot of the time when he's on the edge it's with 3 lineman. I think him playing at OLB rather than DE we'd definitely see more pressure from him.

The play where they highlight Ingram being taken out of the play by the tackle was a bad one for him but that happens. Another play where he's taken right out of it by the tackle looks like holding to me. However the definition on holding can be very blurred.

Near the end of the vid it didn't look so great for Ingram coming out of the OLB type position. Went for the inside spin move and was handled easy.

My thinking is that they obviously gameplanned for Ingram. Trying to decrease his effect on the game. Hopefully when he starts playing for us he can have an impact that will cause NFL teams to gameplan on how to stop him. That will allow our other LB's to get pressures and sacks. Last season i don't think our team had a LB that a team feared. Bringing in a talent like Ingram will hopefully allow the rest of our LB's to do a better job.

I dunno, I see him getting double teamed quite a bit (a good thing), disrupting plays in the backfield, decent bull rushes to create pressure, obvious great speed. In that game, Georgia was getting rid of the ball pretty quick. Sometimes because of pressure and other times guys were just open.

Only thing I notice is he seems to be a hair slow getting off the ball. I'm sure that will improve at the pro level.

Not worried, got double teamed a lot in that game. He has a great spin move and we're gonna put him in positions to make plays... No need to pidgeon hole him as stricly an OLB. I think Pagano will line him up all over the place.

He was upwards to 272lbs or so in college and moved like a RB. Mercilus lead college in sacks but Ingram is basically with him in total overall backfield stats (sacks, hurries, knockdowns). I'd like to see what a quicker 260lb version of Ingram can do.

Here are the three funniest responses to the question of "What to do with Melvin" so far IMO:

put him on the rack and stretch his arms.

Put a cape on him. Our defense has enough Robins ..... we just got Batman.

If it ain't a sack on every snap, we just gotta get rid of him!

This is why I read these boards! Thanks for the laughs CMB! I had a good one this morning. Perhaps there should be a poll for the funniest response to a funny thread.

Use him in creative ways to create matchup problems. He won't beat an OT all the time, but his fluidness makes him an excellent coverage backer and he can certainly double as an ILB.

You move him around. OLB, DE, DT... create matchup problems. He's not the prototypical blindside rusher, but he might surprise us over there. And if he doesn't work out, he will be a very good LOLB... no doubt about that in my mind.

But just to make sure I understand you correctly, you're saying you saw every sack he had in 2011 and that you know for a certainty that none of them came on the edge? Because unless you recorded every USC game, I am not sure that all his sacks are available to watch.

He had a very good senior bowl week rushing against OT's on the outside. Scouts were all there to see that. If he was helpless on the edge, they would know.

And USC moved him inside on passing downs because that way they could get him, Clowney, and Taylor on the field at the same time. It wasn't his inability on the outside that prompted the shift inside. It was because he was capable and others weren't.

Good times. You know Melvin is going to be good. I hope that Melvinsaursrex can tear it up this year...

With the guys we have opposing QB's need to watch out.

I LOLed non stop!

That is AMAZING!

One DE-LB/DE on the roster may be a bust and gets dropped. Who am I talking about? All 3, including the latest. Ya just never know. But I do know...

The fan base here hasn't had anyone to hype up on defense ever since Merriman, games 8-16, his rookie year (in hindsight).

M-Rex will bring back the energy and excitement to the SDefense. I love the rotation of pass rushers we have now if SP and Larry English are healthy. Barnes coming off his best year ever, with Larry, SP, and M-Rex - with Luiget, Garay, Martin, Reyes, Castillo and Co collapsing the pocket. Havoc is on the way!

Oh yeah, and no more Manutlessky as the DC. Rushing Tom Brady with 3 - even a moronic neophyte would never approve rushing Brady with 3 - they should have fired him on the spot - after a slap.

The "scientific" name is Melvinsaurs rex. His primary diet consists of Quaterbacks and running backs. The Melvinsaurus rex favorite food are QBs from Denver, KC, and especially Oakland California.

In other news the Denver Broncos has hired famed Dr. Allen Grant as a special adviser on how to deal with this new threat. He told Manning "Donít move,"..."It canít see us (you) if we (you) donít move."

But our D still can detect him even if he doesn't move... since we have BAT playing safety...

I like "The San Diego Zoo" or maybe shortening it to just "The Zoo", that would be pretty BA if that became a new nickname for our D. Although "San Diego Zoo Safari Park" or "Seaworld" sound pretty intimidating if you ask me.

In light of our recent draft and the impending health of Larry English and SP, Peyton should just save his body and retire. At this point, it's just the right thing to do. Why would he take the risk of facing our pass rush 2 times and maybe even 3 times year? I think he makes the announcement soon so the Broncos can get Osweiler up to speed and pick up a good free agent for depth - maybe McNabb?

WallMark saw that device as a boom, so they signed an exclusive contract with ACME, who didn't see it coming. Who knew Ingram was going to be drafted in the 1st round with those arms?

I think WallMark's on to something.

What if we stretched him like they did to Braveheart?

Alright, i just watched a bunch of tape on Melvin, and I'n getting a little worried now. There is no question that Melvin dominates at the 3T and 1T. But he has not shown anything close to dominance against T's. Out of his 10 sacks this year, only 1 was in the 5T. I don't know if his transition to OLB will be good if he hasn't even shown any threat from the outside. Check this tape:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ojjrp2bGNw

He goes against a NFL caliber T in Cordy Glenn, and he does not even pressure the pocket at all. Anyone else worried? What do we do with this guy?!?!

I saw a guy who was constantly playing on the other side of the line of scrimmage. Now you throw that guy in with other top NFL players and maaaany more plays are going to be made all around. The guy can't do it all and luckily here in SD he won't have to. All this video showed me is a guy with a great motor that plays on the other side of the LOS. He looked excellent.

Exactly, nailed it. We can cause huge match up problems with him lined up anywhere. You cannot double team both Ingram & Phillips, along with JJ, Butler, takeo, Barnes, and Reyes. Serious match, as said, he does not have to do it by himself, having solid players around him help him get to the QB or pressures more.

Can you imagine how fun it's gonna be during training camp. All the Vets are going to be having a field day on Ingram slipping to us. Good to see A.J. Smith is in on the short arms humor.

Chargers GM A.J. Smith isn't worried about No. 18 pick OLB Melvin Ingram's short arms. Some evaluators believe Ingram's 31.5-inch arms will give him trouble against longer offensive tackles, but Smith doesn't think it will be an issue. "I think Melvin will have the same problem Tyrannosaurus Rex had millions of years ago," Smith deadpanned

You're correct, if it were true. But it isn't a valid or meaningful statistic. Find a list of pro-bowlers with short arms. Many great players have them. Now if Ingram ran a 5 second 40 that would be a valid problem. If he wasn't a gifted athlete he wouldn't of been drafted.

I hope we can look back at that stat and laugh as Ingram takes us to a Superbowl victory.
