Q & A With Chicago Bears Defensive Tackle Henry Melton

April 24, 2011 by

Henry Melton came into the NFL in 2009 as a fourth-round pick out of the University of Texas.

Melton got his first playing time this past season. He played pretty hard when he was on the field. He flashed potential during his rookie year, 2009, but suffered a season-ending ankle injury during the pre-season.

Melton appeared in all 16 games last season making 16 tackles, three sacks and one forced fumble. Melton’s first sack came in week 10 against the Vikings. In that game Melton sacked Vikings QB Brett Favre.

Melton was a part of a much improved defensive line that included Julius Peppers, Israel Idonije and Matt Toeania. Melton will be a vital part of the Bears next season.

He will get his shot to start because the Bears like what they saw out of him. He is an athletic player who can come right in and replace the recently cut Tommie Harris.

I had the chance to catch up with Henry last week and I asked him about everything from the NFL lockout, high school football and food he likes to eat Chicago.
