  Melifonwu, a redshirt junior, is the third defensive back from this year's Syracuse team who will enter the NFL Draft early, joining Andre Cisco and Trill Williams. While the others left the team during the middle of the season after suffering injuries, Melifonwu was a bright spot for Syracuse throughout a difficult year. He finished the season with nine pass break-ups, second on the team to Garrett Williams (10), along with 55 tackles, one interception and three tackles for loss. In addition to a successful college performance, Melifonwu has excellent size. Syracuse listed him as 6-foot-3 and 213 pounds.

If Melifonwu had chosen to return to Syracuse next year, he would have been expected to pair with Williams, a redshirt freshman, to form an excellent pair of cornerbacks. Now the Orange will need to find someone to fill the vacancy across from Williams. One of Syracuse's top recruits, Duce Chestnut, will join a number of returners, none of whom have proven themselves on the field yet, as potential options at the position. The ability to complete for a starting job, and Syracuse's success with this year's crop of defensive backs, could also make it an attractive destination for a transfer. - The Post-Standard
