NFL DRAFT - TWO days...

When it comes to making plays, Ingram is best pass rusher in the draft (

"There has been a lot of chatter lately that because of Melvin Ingram's arm length (31 1/2 inches), he is sliding down draft boards. Our sources have told us this rumor is false.

There is a consensus among our sources that their teams have the South Carolina standout ranked as the best pass rusher in the draft. Furthermore, Ingram (6-2, 264) is considered the No. 1 defensive end in a 4-3 scheme and the No. 1 outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme." - Sporting News


It's a nice thought! Tune in as the first round of the NFL Draft starts Thursday at 8 p.m.
