Default Re: Official 2012 ISH NFL Mock Draft

I'll make the pick for the Pats since no one else wanted to step up and to get the draft sped up.

With the 28th pick, the New England Patriots select,

DE Melvin Ingram, out of South Carolina


Versatility. Ingram has an uncommon blend of speed and overall athleticism for a big man. Parlayed with a strong motor and instincts that have allowed him to lineup in numerous positions across the field, Ingram is around the ball often. He is quick off the snap and technically refined working the line of scrimmage, the type of lineman who can continuously defeat blocks to play the run or pass and make plays.


The weaknesses in Ingramís play as a defensive tackle are all about physical limitations such as height, weight and arm length. His short arms and size make it tough for him to eliminate double teams playing inside, and there are uncertainties about his effectiveness there at the next level. He'll also have to prove he has the first step to play defensive end and the movement skills to be moved to linebacker
