Top 100 Prospects – DL Melvin Ingram

At 6-1, 265 pounds Melvin Ingram is what is known in football parlance as a tweener, an in-between physical size that isn’t quite big enough to fill the role along the defensive line, or too big and not quick enough to play linebacker.

But that’s never stopped Ingram from contributing, and finding many ways to do so. His athletic ability could move him from defensive end, to defensive tackle, to outside linebacker, to even inside linebacker. The only restrictions on him are in the fertile imagination of a defensive coordinator.

Ingram has been doing it all since his high school days back in North Carolina. In game for his Richmond County High School team against Scotland High School in October 2006, Ingram scored three times. The first was returning a blocked FG for a touchdown. Next, he returned an interception 45 yards for touchdown. Then, playing at running back for the first time in his high school career, he broke off a 45-yard run for touchdown No. 3. Richmond County High won 31-13 and Ingram scored in all three phases of the game and had more points himself than the opponent. He also punted and kicked off. This is the rest of his story.
