Scouting Report on Rolando Melancon

by JC Shurburtt - 06/23/2006
A very active defensive tackle with a quick first step. Has good instincts, closing speed and strength. He plays with high energy and goes hard until the whistle. Also has a feel for the game. Isn’t the biggest or the fastest defensive tackle out there but makes up for it with his quickness, tenacity and effort.
