BIOGRAPHY: Former running back who moved into the starting lineup as a senior and then posted 29 tackles and 10.5 tackles for loss.
POSITIVES: "Relatively athletic defensive end with adequate size/speed numbers. Moves well on his feet, plays with balance, and fluid

NEGATIVES: "Lacks top first-step quickness. Does not show a burst of speed. Raw at the position, and does too much thinking rather than
ANALYSIS: "After bouncing around as a reserve early in his Texas career, Melton may have finally found a home at defensive end. He possesses
