The 2012 Senior Bowl on Saturday will feature a few players that the Arizona Cardinals might have on their radar looking ahead to the NFL Draft in April. On Monday, it was tackle Mike Adams that caught some eyes. On Tuesday, it was pass rusher Melvin Ingram.
What did Wes Bunting have to say about Ingram?
South Carolina pass rusher Melvin Ingram was also a bear to block off the edge today. He flashed natural change of direction skills on his spin move, was sudden on his inside club and even dropped his pad level down around the edge. He can reach the pass rusher in a number of ways and because of the lacking talent in this year's class; he should be a first round selection.
Ingram has been seen in mock drafts to go about where Arizona picks at number 13, all the way to the end of the first round.
It is said that you can't have too many pass rushers, and in a defensive system built around pressuring the quarterback, talent like Ingram might be hard to pass. Of course, needs in other positions and talent left when the Cardinals select might have them go another way.
