Chargers Sign 1st-Round Pick Melvin Ingram

The San Diego Chargers have been busy on Tuesday. The team announced the signings of three draft picks -- Melvin Ingram (first round), Kendall Reyes (second round) and David Molk (seventh round). Reyes' signing was reported earlier on Tuesday.

Ingram becomes the second-highest draft pick to agree to terms. The Seattle Seahawks, who picked three spots ahead of the Chargers, have inked Bruce Irvin.

Ingram's deal will cover four years with a fifth-year option. He was the 18th overall pick in the draft and Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith was very happy that he fell past the New York Jets at No. 16. Ingram was a defensive end at South Carolina, but he'll play outside linebacker in the Chargers 3-4 defense.
