Meet Alyssa Okada — Girlfriend Of Day 2 Draft Hopeful Obi Melifonwu

|

Round 1 of the draft is officially over and now we can get into the rounds where championship teams are made. Finding those impact players in days 2 & 3 are probably more important than anything you do on the first night. Obi Melifonwu, the safety out of UCONN, is one of those guys who could’ve snuck into the first round last night, but will almost definitely going to get picked in round 2 tonight.

His NFL.com “Bottom Line” 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.

This guy is pure, freak athlete and McShay has him ranked as his 45th best prospect. How does 6’4″, 220, with a 4.40 40 sound? Expect to see him go early tonight.
