Melton had an underwhelming career at Georgia Tech, with a senior season stat line of 17 catches and 263 receiving yards. For his career, Melton hauled in 33 catches for 461 yards and just one touchdown. Melton's stat ledger is as much of a product of the Yellow Jacket's spread option run offense versus Melton's capabilities as a wide receiver.
Standing at 6'1" and 206 pounds and good speed, Melton has the physical tools to play wideout. The Falcons have brought in three undrafted wideouts to complete against Melton, including: Marcus Jackson of the Lamar Cardinals, Cody Pearcy from the Huntingdon Hawks (Ala.) and James Rodgers from the Oregon State Badgers.
Here's the quick bio on Calvin from AtlantaFalcons.com, and if you're curious how he got the contract with such pedestrian numbers, that 40 time might have a small something to do with it:
Calvin, 6-3, 215 pounds, played in 37 games with 10 starts and totaled 42 receptions for 528 yards with one touchdown during his career at California. He also recorded three tackles, a forced fumble and a blocked kick. In 2011, he had his most productive season with career highs of 20 receptions, 269 receiving yards and one touchdown. Calvin posted a blistering 4.32 in the 40-yard dash at Cal’s 2012 Pro Day.
Neither Jolly or Albritton were ever major factors for the Falcons. Both were scout team players, and with the addition of two new offensive linemen as well as a new long snapper in Josh Harris, both were cut to make room.
With the 2012 NFL Draft complete, the Atlanta Falcons now turn their attention to undrafted free agents. The team wasted little time snapping up a large crop of players. Here is a look at all of the reported -- not official -- signings, along with links to each source.
