Patriots spotted at UConn pro day where DB Melifonwu is main attraction

The Patriots were present at the University of Connecticut as one ridiculously athletic Husky went through drills as both a safety and a corner. 

Per Kevin Duffy of MassLive.com, Patriots college scouting director Brian Smith was on the Storrs campus -- along with representatives from the Cardinals, Eagles, Texans, Bucs, Packers, Steelers, Falcons, Panthers and Saints -- to get a look at defensive back Obi Melifonwu and his draft-eligible teammates. 

One of the top testers at the NFL Scouting Combine, Melifonwu checked in at 6-foot-4, 224 pounds and ran an impressive 4.40 40-yard dash in Indy. He also jumped better than anyone at the combine when it came to both the vertical (44 inches) and the broad jump (11-feet-9). 

Melifonwu did not run the shuttle drills at the combine, but he checked those boxes at his pro day, submitting very strong shuttle times and an adequate three-cone drill.

After playing safety at UConn, there are those who wonder if -- because of his stand-out athleticism -- Melifonwu will be able to play corner as a pro. It's a track similar to that of his former college teammate Byron Jones, who was considered a versatile defensive back and one of the best athletes at the draft two years ago before being taken in the first round by the Cowboys
