Is There Room in Baltimore for Aaron Mellette?

THE SANFORD HERALD | WESLEY BEESON Saturday, September 24, 2009 in , N.C.

via Where Does Aaron Mellette Fit Into Wide Receiver Competition?

Players like Tandon Doss, Deonte Thompson, LaQuan Williams, David Reed and Tommy Streeter have attracted most of the attention during the offseason.

But where does the rookie out of Elon see himself fitting in when he returns for training camp next month?

“I know when training camp comes it’s going to be another mindset [from learning in the offseason], where I’m going to be out there looking to dominate every day and be more confident in what I’m doing,” Mellette said at the conclusion of rookie football school.

Mellette did dominate the small school level at Elon, a Football Championship Subdivision school. He reeled in 97 catches for 1,398 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns last year… Mellette ranked second in the country with an average of 127 receiving yards per game.

The Baltimore receiving situation is pretty hazy behind Torrey Smith. Whether Ryan Rouillard’s guy Mellette can work his way into the rotation is probably something that will be determined in training camp. But from a cost benefit standpoint, in a crowded situation like this, I would always rather own the cheapest guy that also has the potential to have the highest upside. There’s no real point in paying a premium for the guys that are nominally starters if it’s a cloudy situation. On the Ravens squad that player is probably either Tommy Streeter or Mellette.
