Great question Kiwi! I was thinking the same thing.I was surprised he wasn't utilized a little more than he was at times but it seems he was learning the ropes.I think come next season, he's going to really bring it, since he knows what he has to do now, to get himself prepared.
But...I am still wondering if he's going to be a game changer or just a very steady defensive presence. I would like to know from Joe and a few others on here, who have a better perspective, what they think.

Stay tuned.Yep, you convinced me leading up to the draft, doc, and that's not easy to do .And you were right, too. Plus, like you just said, the only reason he seemed to not do as much this season was because he didn't play a lot. But then, this team led the league in run defense during the early part of the season, and its front seven was EASILY its strength, so that's not surprising at all.Once he plays a majority of the snaps, I think any remaining doubts will be gone.

Melvin is a good player who will get better. Has lots to learn yet but his raw skills are immense. As many have said he was close on several sacks. Those will come when the game slows down for him. He was fooled a few times on the run,, and struggled at times in coverage but he always put good hits on the ball carrier causing several turnovers. Whatever he lacks in arm length he makes up for with speed and leverege. I look for a leaner meaner Melvin in 2013 . Lets hope Pagano opens up the playbook and let this man loose because he does seem to be a gamer.
