Rating: - 0.8601 Composite Score

How he fits:

Melvin has a great frame and natural skill set to play in the Gopher offense. He possesses deceptive speed and quickness, along with a good burst off the line and sharp route running. Can win one-on-one battles for jump balls down field.

Chances to play in 2014:

Pretty good. Holland is very physical and has great size already. The Gophers could use his quickness off the line and two-way threat on underneath throws plus the ability to go vertical.
