TD Obi Melinfonwu Scouting Notes


Butch Dill AP

Obi Melifonwu

The UConn product has experience and athleticism to burn. He really flashed at senior week practices showing an impressive physique at the weigh in and man cover ability on the field.

Strengths

Tall and fast. He moves like a big CB. Plenty of experience in the deep half. A sure tackler and gets to the ball. High character guy coming out of a program known for putting DBs in the NFL.

Weaknesses

Doesn't bring much physicality for such a big, fast guy. Routinely pushed back on first contact as a tackler. Always around the ball but will likely test faster,quicker, than he actually plays.

Overall

Great character guy with elite range and size for a safety. A physical specimen. But also basically a big softy. Getting knocked back by 169lb Donnell Pumphrey 1 on 1 in the hole in the Senior Bowl game tells you all you need to know about his physicality. I think he might be a better prospect as a CB, but it'll take him longer to be a starter there than at S.

Pro Comparison: Tebucky Jones
