Usually, I would also have a note on other players if they looked good and none in last years book. However, it was Louisiana-Lafayette and I may not have really paid attention to the rest of the team at that point
So, what you got on him Bmore?
I was one of them that asked you about him. Melvin had a really high grade on one of the draft places I have bookmarked and what I saw on youtube I really liked. He looked strong and not afraid to tackle. When he drew comparisons to Richard Sherman I knew BMore would be all over him. My issue was his height. If he was really 6'3 then I would have grabbed him. I never could find out his really height till he had his pro-day March 28.
Here is his results:
There were a total of 16 NFL teams represented at Louisiana Lafayette Pro Day on March 28. A total of 14 players worked out Indoors on field-turf that was not in very good condition. There were tears and hashes all over the place.
Melvin White CB (6-1 ¼, 203 pounds) – He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 and 4.62 seconds and recorded a 32-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-2 broad jump. He completed the short shuttle drill in 4.53 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.36 seconds. White also recorded 12 strength lifts. He worked out as a cornerback with a notation that his best position is probably safety.
