If I had to guess, I'd say he's a 3-4 OLB and that his downside is probably a more athletic Jarrett Johnson I guess; i.e. a 3-4 backer that can set the edge and play in space. I'm still not sure what to make of him though. He'll do some jaw dropping things on tape, but I don't know if he's an NFL pass rusher..
It's not, it's sports science. They do talk about the backflip, but it's not the focus of the piece.

I would suggest watching it if you're going to doubt his explosiveness...

Just got a chance to watch it. Paired with the combine numbers, a lack of natural explosiveness isn't the right way to put it. I'm really just saying that he seems tentative off the snap, doesn't cover a lot of initial ground, which paired with his lack of length makes me question his fit as as DE.

OTOH, with all the video I've watched on him because of this thread, I've managed to convince myself that he can stand up and start at 3-4 OLB. So there's that.

Pollack was a better pass rusher and Ingram is a little more athletic, but they both have similar size and versatility. Pollack got a bad deal I feel for the guy he could have been a stud.

Ayers? Ewe. Ingram is more like Parys Haralson than he is Robert Ayers.

Yay Vols DE's!

I saw Ingram play during these passed two years as a student at the University of South Carolina, and I will tell you that he is not purely a pass-rusher. Although he is often reduced to that because of that ability, he has shown the ability to make plays on the ball (2 ints last year, 68 yard fake punt TD vs UGA, several fumble recoveries). I don't think he is exactly like Woodley, but he has a great knack for scooping up and causing fumbles. I can see the Tamba Hali comparison, but he has about 2 inches and 10 lbs on Ingram. Doesn't seem like a lot, but when firing off the edge like he will do if he is indeed a 3-4 OLB he will be up against OTs. Those lbs will matter then. Because of his size, and doubts about it I see him in the same light as Dwight Freeney but he actually could get the opportunity to go to a 3-4 OLB instead of being drafted into a 4-3 DE spot.

i watched ingram and upshaw for 3 days in mobile south practices. Ingram might be the better athlete but Upshaw was the better football player. take it fwiw.
