Representatives from one NFL team gathered at Elon’s pro day on March 26, where three players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf in 45-degree temperatures under sunny skies.
Mellette (6-foot-2 7/8, 218) ran the short shuttle in 4.53 seconds at Elon’s pro day, and opted to stand on the rest of his combine numbers.
Mellette has a workout scheduled with the Indianapolis Colts on April 10.
Elon hasn’t had a player drafted since the Jacksonville Jaguars picked defensive back Chad Nkang in the seventh round of the 2007 NFL Draft. Rich McGeorge, a productive tighe end for the Green Bay Packers in the 1970s and College Football Hall of Famer, was a first-round selection in 1970 out of Elon by Green Bay.
