Obi 

6'4" | 224 lbs.

2016 stats:

118 tackles, 4 interceptions, 3 passes defended, 1 fumble recovery

Projection:

First-to-second round

Scouting Report:

"Big and athletic, he may lack the coverage qualities and instincts needed to work as a "last line of defense" player in a pass-happy division. Melifonwu is an effective downhill tackler who has the ability to match up against tight ends and make a living near the line of scrimmage. His football instincts aren't up to par, but the size and traits will be extremely enticing for teams who covet traits first." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
