Chargers feel fortunate to land Ingram
The San Diego Chargers consider themselves most fortunate to have landed a potential impact defensive player in Melvin Ingram without having to trade up from the 18th pick in the draft.
“I consider this a part of luck,” Chargers GM A.J. Smith told the San Diego Union-Tribune, “because when I see what I consider a bonus pick, outside our cluster, it’s luck. He’s a mean, nasty man, extremely physical with a great motor.”
Ingram, who will be an outside linebacker in the Chargers' 3-4 system, could give San Diego its first bona fide edge rusher since Shawne Merriman's heyday.
