Draft Scout Aaron Mellette News
09/12/13 - WR Aaron Mellette (knee) was placed on reserve/injured by the Ravens Wednesday.
08/18/13 - WR Aaron Mellette can't be accused of failing to capitalize on opportunities.
Targeted only twice in two preseason games, the seventh-round draft pick from Elon has scored a touchdown each time with a 40-yard score against the Atlanta Falcons and a 21-yard score against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
As Mellette makes his bid for one of the final roster spots or the practice squad, he has boosted his prospects.
"I think it's helping out a lot, going out there and performing well in the game, letting the coaches see what I can do," Mellette said. "When it gets into game situation, I'm able to perform. I'm a big-time gamer. I love to practice, but I love to play the game as well. It's less thinking to me in a game. I'm just out there reacting."
Mellette was banished to the sideline at practice last week by coach John Harbaugh, who criticized him for being lazy and lackadaisical. The 6-2, 217-pounder shrugged it off and has performed adeptly in practices and games.
"That's how you make it, that's how you earn your stripes: you make plays," Harbaugh said. "You got to do it within the context of knowing what you're doing and you got to stack days.
"It's not just two catches. It's all the other things that go with it. You can have two great catches and everything else could not be there and you're not doing what you need to do. He's doing all those things and doing a good job."

01/24/13 - Four small-college players to watch from the Senior Bowl...Aaron Mellette, a wide receiver from Elon, is a big athletic type that can make a catch over his head and down around his ankles. He demonstrated the ability to go up and get a ball. I don't think he's a true No. 1 wide receiver, but he will be a solid third or fourth. - Pat Kirwan, CBSSports.com
