— Melifonwu has gone from cute safety prospect people discovered they liked OK at the Senior Bowl to the hottest prospect for the 2017 NFL Draft after his radical NFL Combine performance. He’s on fire because people are seeing the potential for him as converting to cornerback — and being one of the biggest ‘freak’ players in years if he does so. There would have never been a corner like him in NFL history, at his size and athleticism.
We don’t think slipping him into the late first-round of mock drafts does him enough justice. See how highly we’re willing to project him in our scouting report and scouting grades.

What will we discover with our computer scouting models in 2017?
For a completely different scouting service, visit collegefootballmetrics.com.
