Strengths
plays fast; flows to the ball; comes off of blocks; looks very good when playing downhill; effective in short yardage press coverage.
Weaknesses
doesn't have great range; gives a huge cushion in man off and zone situations; ineffective in reverse; struggles with his angles on wide pursuits.
Overall Analysis
Melifonwu is a good athlete that is best suites to being a box safety. He is effective versus the run and in short yardage press situations but struggles in deep coverage or making plays in space. He'll need to find the right fit in order to succeed.
