Elon wide receiver Aaron Mellette drawing interest from Ravens

The Super Bowl champion Ravens are perusing the wide receivers in the NFL draft.

That includes displaying considerable interest in big Elon wide receiver Aaron Mellette, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

Mellette is a 6-foot-3, 217-pounder who played in the Senior Bowl and has private workouts with the Indianapolis Colts, Carolina Panthers and the Seattle Seahawks.

Mellette ran the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds at the NFL scouting combine, bench pressing 225 pounds nine times with a 33 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 10-3 broad jump, a 4.41 20-yard shuttle and a 7.11 three-cone drill.

Mellette caught 97 passes for 1,398 yards and 18 touchdowns as a senior.

He finished his career with 304 catches for 4,254 yards and 44 touchdowns.

Mellette didn't play football until he was a sophomore in high school, mostly playing basketball growing up in Sanford, N.C.

Besides the Senior Bowl, Mellette has also played well against big-school competition in games.

He caught 11 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown against Vanderbilt.
