Extremely long cornerback who some have suggested will play safety. Was strictly at right cornerback for Syracuse. Has good, quick reaction to screens/plays in front of him. Wants to deliver a big hit but can get a little too aggressive forcing him to be deked out of his shoes and miss the tackle. He's good covering the short area and the deep area but see some weaknesses in between the two. There's certainly upside to his projection due to his size/speed/fluidity combo.

Ifeatu Melifonwu selected No. 101 by Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions have selected cornerback Ifeatu Melifonwu with the No. 101 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Melifonwu is a high ceiling, low floor cornerback prospect out of Syracuse. A press corner with insane athleticism and great length, Melifonwu has all of the tools to develop into a dominant number two capable of covering receivers and tight ends of all sizes. He needs to get more physical and clean up his tackling technique, but Melifonwu is a second round type of prospect from a sheer talent standpoint.
