Overview:

Malone was very productive at Tennessee, where he saw action in 39 career games, he had 104 receptions, for 1608 receiving yards, and 14 receiving touchdowns. He has good size, he has good speed, is a good route runner, is a good pass catcher, and is usually sure handed. He is also a good blocking receiver, he is very experienced, is an offensive play maker, he fights for every yard, and he is a good deep threat. He also breaks tackles with ease and makes defenders miss with ease. He does tend to commit some un-needed holding, and blocking in the back penalties, and while he does have good speed, he does not have elite burner speed. With that said, I view Malone as a late day 2 pick, to an early day 3 pick.
