From ESPN NFL Draft Buzz: "South Carolina DE Melvin Ingram did diagnose plays quickly, and he also used power and quickness to win the majority of his matchups during one-on-one drills and the team period."
From Sporting News: "3. Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina, 6-2, 276, 4.75 (South). While he lacks explosiveness off the edge, Ingram is very aggressive on contact, largely due to his violent hand use, strength and power. He was quick to read and recognize his keys as a run defender during 9-on-7 and team periods. He also ran well for a man of his size, and he looked very comfortable playing off the ball in pass coverage."
From the Patriots Draft News: "South Carolina DE Melvin Ingram had a real solid day in pass rush drills. He looks explosive and sudden. He routinely beat the tackle to get into the backfield. He also did a nice job in run support and bumping the running back coming out of the backfield. I’m not sure what his best position will be yet, but he has gotten off to a nice start this week."

From National Football Post: "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."
From NFL Blog: "I thought the most impressive group was the South’s defensive line. Melvin Ingram, Courtney Upshaw and Quinton Coples, to me, are all first-round picks, and they’ve all played like first-round picks. I’m particularly interested in Ingram, because he’s got an atypical body type at 6-foot-2 and 276 pounds. You’ve got to figure out how to use him, but he’s played really well so far. Bottom line: These three guys represent the best position group heading into Saturday’s game."

-Florida St. OT Zebrie Sanders wasn’t dominant and probably lost about as many battles as he won. However, it’s important to remember that Sanders was facing off against guys like Quinton Coples, Courtney Upshaw and Melvin Ingram, who could all be off the board before the second half of round one.
• Melvin Ingram of South Carolina is an extremely crafty pass rusher. At one point in the 11-on-11’s Ingram beat his man three consecutive times and utilized a different move / counter (swim, power, speed) on each. Ingram also flew by Jeff Allen in 1-on-1 drills. Ingram wasn't flashy, but he was certainly very effective.
