Rookie Training Camp is starting today and all the fans will want to know how Melvin Ingram did. Based off of the reports from the media, he is a standout on the field. He still is only facing up against a bunch of other rookies and undrafted free agents, but he is at a different level.

Ingram was seen consistently getting into the backfield against the other players (Christopher Smith). We are going to need a lot of that from him when the season starts!

Michael Gehlken said that it was strange to see the number 54 moving that fast on the field. Stephen Cooper held the number 54 for the last nine seasons and he never was known for his speed. Hopefully Ingram will have the smarts that Coop displayed.

We will have to see how he fairs once they start to face off against the veterans on the team. Watching Ingram and Jared Gaither battle up front would be intriguing.

Can the season start already?
