More pre-draft love for UConn's Melifonwu

NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock released his positional rankings and former UConn safety Obi Melifonwu is rated as the No. 5 safety.

Ohio State's Malik Hooker, LSU's Jamal Adams, Jabrill Peppers of Michigan and Washington's Budda Baker are the only safeties rated ahead of Melifonwu who helped his stock at the Senior Bowl.

Melifonwu led UConn with 110 tackles and four interceptions as a senior and figures to only help his stock when it comes time to run and jump for the pro scouts. I've seen some chatter about Melifonwu becoming a first-round pick as former teammate Byron Jones was two years ago so stay tuned.
