Melvin Ingram Player Overview

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Ingram lost 3 games and most of a 4th to a hamstring injury last year. His 2018 results -- 7 sacks, career-low tackles (as a starter) -- suggest he suffered for Joey Bosa losing 9 games to injury on the opposite side.

By contrast, Ingram's 2 best overall Pro Football Focus grades to date came in Bosa's first 2 seasons. And Ingram racked up more QB hits in each of the 3 seasons prior to these past 2.

He heads into his age-31 campaign this fall playing in what should be an even better Chargers defense. L.A. gets S Derwin James back from injury and adds CB Chris Harris Jr., DT Linval Joseph and rookie LB Kenneth Murray.

Ingram has delivered top-13 per-game production 4 of the past 5 seasons, making him a pretty easy bet in this range.
