Default Upshaw vs Ingram

As the draft creeps closer it looks like either Alabama DE/OLB Courtney Upshaw and South Carolina DE/OLB Melvin Ingram will be the top 2 pass rushers off the board. Both these SEC prospects had outstanding Senior seasons, but are very different prospect when you put on the film.

So my question here is who would you take Upshaw or Ingram?

Here some of my thoughts on each prospect:

Courtney Upshaw may have played in the 3-4 in college, but the more I've seen of him makes me believe he should move to DE in a 4-3. Upshaw doesn't have the movement skills to coverage in the NFL, and looks thick and strong enough to be able to handle OT's. Upshaw could go as high at 7 to Jacksonville, and will not fall out of the top 15 since players like him are in high demand.

Melvin Ingram played in South Carolina 4-3 scheme, playing mostly DE, but also seeing time standing up and inside at DT. Ingram is a much more fluid athlete than Upshaw, and should translate to a 3-4 OLB position much better because of it. Ingram is a playmaker on defense that isn't the most consistent player, but usually makes a few big plays a game. Defensive weapons like Ingram are usually high on most teams needs, and having scheme versitility will enable Ingram to have more teams interested in him. Ingram could see either Buffalo at 10, Seattle at 12 or Arizona at 13 draft him in the 1st round.
