Melvin Ingram is an edge defender in the midst of his prime years right now. Last season, he ranked 18th at his position, with an 84.2 overall grade; in 2016, he ranks eighth.

Ingram a young player in his prime, and should command a lot of interest if indeed he were to hit the market as an unrestricted free agent.
