Bio: 
Four-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Sun Belt in 2014. Started six games as a redshirt freshman in 2013.
Pos: 
Nice-sized college left tackle best in a small area. Works to bend his knees and block with leverage, quickly sets up off the snap and stays square. Keeps his feet moving, effectively uses his hands and anchors in pass protection. Solid position blocker who does enough to get a pad on opponents and disrupt them from their angles of attack.
Neg: 
Lacks footwork and overall lateral range. Ineffective blocking at the second level. Average athlete.
Analysis: 
Melton is a size prospect with the ability to be placed on a practice squad as a developmental prospect at tackle or guard on the right side.
