IMO his edge rush speed is better applied at LEO.
Mix it up ala SEA with
Michael Bennett.
Cliff Avril.
Frank Clark.

Joey Bosa.
Melvin Ingram.
Jerry Attaochu.

As important as Bennett has been to that D, I fully expect Bosa to have a much greater impact playing that role for us. Bigger, stronger, faster and just scratching the surface of what he can do.

We'll start to see how it pans out 6 long weeks from now.
When we go back to college, you hit things right on the head. Ingram was never a sack specialist. At South Carolina he played all over the D. They lined him up all over the place. Versatile, not a sack guy. THAT is what makes his sack totals the last two years so impressive.

Attaochu was an edge rusher sack specialist. That was his role at Georgia Tech, that was what was projected of him in the draft for the pro's.

It would be huge for him to stay healthy and contribute this year. He is one guy that I think can really benefit from Bradley whispering.

Attaochu can learn from Ingram and realize his potential too. I'm not giving up on him yet.

In his interview Bradley speaks to the importance of seeing the players in pads. What has been done so far is training and experimentation to see how players respond in different roles.
He expects to see individuals stand out when the pads go on.

Default #6 most feared position group- Ingram-Bosa

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...-tops-the-list

6) Los Angeles Chargers' pass rushers


Get used to seeing Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa dotting this list as one of the most terrifying pass-rushing combinations in the league. This Chargers duo features a mix of speed (Ingram) and power (Bosa) that will overwhelm offenses with suspect athletes positioned as edge blockers. Ingram has unique ability to turn the corner on a speed rush -- while also flashing enough agility and wiggle to win on an inside move. This makes him nearly impossible to slow down on the weak side, particularly when he has a clear runway (no tight end) to attack. Not to be outdone, Bosa is a savvy Kung Fu fighter with a non-stop motor, quick hands and savage combat skills. He routinely outworks blockers at the point of attack and his relentless spirit results in a number of sacks on second and third efforts.

As the designated playmakers on a defense designed to wreak havoc off the edges under new coordinator Gus Bradley, Ingram and Bosa could each post double-digit sack numbers this season.

It is nice to see these two get some recognition. I will be disappointed if Bosa and Ingram do not each get double digit sacks... I think these two could be very dynamic next year and may be considered a top 2 or 3 duo by the time the dust settles.
