Melvin Ingram has demonstrated the athletic ability to drop into coverage. This is critical to the SOLB position. Ingram should be able to rush from the edge, drop into coverage, rush from inside at linebacker, or rush from DT in pass rush situations. Ingram has a proven sudden burst to his game, and if used correctly, he could be a good pressure player. Ingram has pass rushing moves in his game, too. In contrast, Courtney Upshaw has to prove that he is athletic enough to drop into coverage and play in space according to Mike Lombardi. This is important, because Upshaw doesn't possess the sudden burst of quickness that Melvin Ingram demonstrates when he closes in on the ball. Also, Mike Lombardi stated that bigger offensive tackles in the SEC engulfed Upshaw, so he has some concerns about Upshaw's transition into the NFL. Upshaw doesn't look like a player that you can rush constantly, because of his skill set as a pass rusher. Upshaw is a pure power player. If he can't play in space and drop into coverage, 34 teams should be concerned about that. This is a player who really needs to workout good, so teams know where they can play him. The only strong outside linebacker that the Cowboys should consider drafting in round 1 should be Melvin Ingram, imso. Ingram could be used in a variety of ways and be a real Joker and give you pass rush.
