Melvin Ingram expects greatness from the Los Angeles Chargers defense.
Ingram is so confident of it Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , he wants a chance to moonlight on offense.
The Pro Bowl defensive end lobbied for a look at tight end after the team's three-day mandatory minicamp concluded Thursday, offering another signal of how productive the Chargers expect to be in their second season under coordinator Gus Bradley.
"It's just getting in where I fit in," said Ingram, who matched his career high with 10陆 sacks last season. "Fitting in and making some plays. The more you can do."
The Chargers' defense expects to be able to do plenty. They have more familiarity with Bradley's 4-3 defense, a potential star in rookie safety Derwin James, and another option to rush the passer in emerging talent Isaac Rochell.
Joey Bosa is not as boisterous as his counterpart at defensive end, but shares Ingram's outlook the Chargers will be formidable after allowing 17 points per game last season, which ranked third in the NFL.
"Hopefully a similar defense to what we had last year, with some of those sloppy mistakes and some of the run game stuff patched up and fixed," Bosa said.
"We were moving in the last direction last year. Obviously, here and there we let up some tough games in the run game. But I think with the addition of the rookies we have and after years of playing together, can't tell the future but it's looking like we are going to have a great defense."
James, who was selected by the Chargers at No. 17 overall in the first round John Johnson Jersey , was the standout among the newcomers this week. He intercepted Phillip Rivers on Wednesday and looked solid in his most extensive work so far, aside from a mixup on an assignment when the offense put a receiver in motion on the final day.
Asked about where James looks best after playing both strong and free safety, coach Anthony Lynn joked, "In a Charger uniform."
Said Ingram: "That's why we went and got him in the first round. He's been everything as expected."
There were no such presumptions for Rochell, a seventh-round draft pick in 2017 coming out of Notre Dame. After losing weight and becoming more proficient in pass rush techniques, however, he could give the Chargers another threat coming off the edge to complement the standout duo of Bosa and Ingram.
"I've always liked Isaac," Bosa said. "I think he's a great guy and I think he has the potential to be a great rush end, but the jump he made was kind of unexpected. Seeing him out here with his hands and just the way he is moving is pretty unbelievable."
"He's definitely going to be another piece to our rotation," Ingram said. "It's not 'if he can become,' he's definitely going to be a piece."
Rochell's development might allow Ingram a chance to catch passes instead of getting sacks.
Ingram, who memorably scored on a 68-yard touchdown run off a fake punt in college at South Carolina, spent time after practice working against cornerback Tony Brown.
Ingram even told Rivers that a connection between the quarterback and converted defender could be more productive than the record-setting rapport he shared with tight end Antonio Gates.
When it comes to evaluating the Chargers' defense or his own skills Kevin White Jersey , Ingram is not lacking for swagger.
"I'm always confident," Ingram said. "Ain't nothing changed."
NOTES: Rivers and defensive tackle Brandon Mebane did not practice Thursday, as Lynn gave any player with at least 10 years experience the day off. Lynn extended the policy to excuse offensive tackle Russell Okung, who will be entering his ninth season this fall.
Over the course of Donovan Mitchell’s outstanding rookie season with Utah, Portland star Damian Lillard has become something of a mentor, regularly sending texts of encouragement.
So Lillard really didn’t mind when Mitchell was the one who broke his rookie 3-point record.
”He’s had a great season, not just for a rookie but for a guard in the NBA. I’m really happy for him,” Lillard said. ”We’ve had some communication throughout the season. I like to see a guy that’s humble, a guy that works hard. Not many people were talking about him coming out of the draft. He wasn’t the talk of the draft.
”But he just came out and he just showed. That’s what makes me a fan of him.”
Mitchell surpassed Lillard’s mark of 185 3-pointers on Tuesday night in Utah’s 119-79 victory over the Golden State Warriors.
The next night, the two players were face-to-face in the final regular-season game. Portland claimed a 102-93 win on its home court, sending the Trail Blazers into a first-round playoff series against the New Orleans Pelicans, and the Jazz to a postseason matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Mitchell, 21 Margus Hunt Jersey , described the end of the season as fun, with both the record and Utah’s push for the playoffs. The Jazz strung together an 11-game winning streak starting in late January to begin a run in which they lost just twice in a 23-game span.
”The kid inside me has really enjoyed it,” Mitchell said. ”I got the Defensive Player of the Year and Coach of the Year on my team and we’re the No. 5 seed and nobody thought we’d even be in the playoffs. So I’m excited to get this thing going.”
Utah coach Quin Snyder said he was always confident in Mitchell’s ability, even back in early November when the rookie went 3 for 21 from the floor in a 104-97 loss to Philadelphia.
”As much as anything, it wasn’t Donovan’s play. I mean it was – coupled with his mental makeup. You could tell this was a guy who was fearless, who was not afraid of the moment. And I think the Philly game, what he did the next game, how he moved the ball, his decisions were better.”
Snyder said the Jazz staff focused on Mitchell’s progress and knew the results would come for the 6-foot-3 shooting guard out of Louisville.
”He wasn’t worried about starting. He just wanted to play, and he wanted to play well,” the coach said.
Overall, Mitchell led Utah during the regular season with an average of 20.5 points a game, and he led all NBA rookies with an average of 23 points in March (ninth overall). He’s the first rookie to lead his team in scoring and into the playoffs since Carmelo Anthony with Denver.
On Thursday Matt Slauson Jersey , Mitchell was named the NBA’s Rookie of the Month for March and the first part of April. It was the fourth time he’d earned the award this season.
He has 187 3-pointers heading into the postseason, which starts for the Jazz on Sunday in Oklahoma City.
Mitchell and Ben Simmons are the top candidates for the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award (which Lillard won in 2013). The two have gotten into something of a war of words lately, with Simmons telling ESPN that he’d vote for himself: ”If you look at the numbers, you’ll see. People who know the game know.”
Mitchell responded by trolling Simmons with a pair of sweatshirts. The first one – worn before Tuesday’s game against the Warriors – was emblazoned with the definition of the word rookie. The second, which he wore into the Moda Center on Wednesday, exclaimed simply, ”Rookie?”
Simmons was the first overall pick by Philadelphia in the 2016 draft but broke his foot and missed his entire first season. So technically he counts as a rookie this season.
Back in February, Lillard made his endorsement of Mitchell clear: ”I think he should be Rookie of the Year, for sure. Not just because of his numbers, but his impact on their team. He’s basically leading them. It’s special to see a rookie be able to do what he’s doing out there.”
Utah teammate Rudy Gobert said Mitchell has already proven his worth to the Jazz.
”Whether he wins it or not, I don’t think it really matters. In five years we won’t care if he won it or not. He showed that he’s poised to be a superstar in this league and he will be,” Gobert said.
