Melvin Ingram is one of the most confident players in the NFL. 

The defensive end was a key player for the Los Angeles Chargers last season, helping the team to a 9-7 finish, as they ended the regular season second in the AFC West. 

Unfortunately, their season ended in December, as they just missed out on a wildcard place to the Tennessee Titans and the Buffalo Bills, who finished with the same records. 

However, Ingram himself did go to the Pro Bowl, along with five of his teammates. But next year, he's looking to take his team much further. 

SUPER BOWL CHAMPS? 

In fact, he's backing the Charges to go all the way and win a world championship.

"This Super Bowl, we're going to win," he said following a recent OTA session in LA, per NFL.com.  

"We haven't been to the playoffs in a while. I think it's going to be crazy. This Super Bowl, we're going to win, going to be, 'Hey, we ready, we grinding.'

"Our main objective goal is to win a Super Bowl. it's to win Super Bowl, keep fighting, keep playing, keep grinding no matter what, and that's the goal."

It's fair to say then, that Ingram has high hopes - and all the confidence to back it up. And there's no reason he shouldn't be confident - especially in his own ability. 

INGRAM'S POWERFUL WORKOUT 

The DE really found his groove last season - reaching a level we hadn't seen in any of his previous years in the NFL.

He started all 16 games, recorded 10.5 sacks and a forced fumble - while he also recovered two fumbles and returned one for a TD. That's pretty good going.

But judging by a video the Charges posted on Twitter yesterday, he could get even better. Yes, really. Check out what he's been doing in practice recently. 

The power and speed he shows during that drill should have every quarterback in the NFL on notice. 

If Ingram's teammates are as sharp as him this far ahead of the 2018 season, there may be some truth in his claims that the Chargers can get back into the playoffs. 

That's something they haven't achieved since 2013 when the franchise played in San Diego. That year, they reached the Divisional round but lost to the Denver Broncos.

In 2018, Ingram is predicting that the Chargers can go just as far - perhaps even further, and judging by his workouts, that's not out of the question.
