Rookie Zach Martin impresses Melton

OXNARD, Calif. -- First-round pick Zack Martin had a welcome-to-the-NFL moment on the first full-speed practice rep of his NFL career. Defensive tackle Henry Melton exploded past the rookie right guard in the one-on-one pass-rush drill. In the blink of an eye, Melton got Martin to lean a little to his right, changed directions and ripped through with his hands to win the rep about as convincingly as possible. "I just had to let him know that I'm here and it's going to be a long training camp," Melton said.

Henry Melton And The Dallas Cowboys Are Betting The Farm This Year

Former Pro Bowl defensive tackle and DFW area native Henry Melton is attempting to return from a serious knee injury, and he knows that he is going to have to prove to the Cowboys and their fans that he still has what it takes to get the job done. Will he and the team hit the jackpot? When the Dallas Cowboys took the gamble to invest in Henry Melton during the off-season there was considerable risk involved. Sure there was a tremendous amount of potential that he could step right into the 3-tech role that was vacated by Jason Hatcher, but the Grapevine native and University of Texas (or...

Melton: 'I've got to prove I've still got it'

OXNARD, Calif. -- Of the 14 defensive lineman eligible to practice for the Dallas Cowboys, Henry Melton is the most accomplished. He has a Pro Bowl to his credit. He has 15.5 career sacks. He has started 32 games. He has played in two playoff games. But like most of the Cowboys' defensive linemen currently eligible to practice for the Cowboys, Melton comes with a question mark. He played in only three games last year because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Dallas Cowboys Training Camp: Henry Melton Cleared For Full Participation In Practice

Dallas Cowboys Training Camp: Henry Melton Cleared For Full Participation In Practice

Henry Melton will be cleared to take part in the Cowboys first practice of training camp tomorrow, sources told David Moore of the DMN. Earlier today, Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com tweeted it was "fair to say" that defensive tackle Henry Melton is the only defensive lineman whose starting spot is not up for grabs. That underscores once again the importance Henry Melton will have for the Cowboys defense at the 3-technique spot, in spite of missing all on-field OTA and minicamp work in the offseason as he recovered from a torn ACL. When Melton signed with the Cowboys back on March 19...

Henry Melton Talks About His Recovery And The Dallas Cowboys Defensive Line

Some Dallas Cowboys fans are excited about the mix of Rushmen that will be trying to prove themselves, and Henry Melton agrees. He said they will be "fun to watch" and discussed his rehab timeline during a radio show. The biggest free agency acquisition for the Dallas Cowboys brought with it immediate attention, as Henry Melton became the only defensive lineman on the team that had already "made a name for himself" with his previous Pro Bowl season. But ten months removed from his ACL injury, Melton has not been involved in team drills during OTAs and mini-camp. If Rod Marinelli's Rushmen...

Best case/worst case: Henry Melton

IRVING, Texas -- In order to break out of their 8-8 doldrums, the Dallas Cowboys will need a lot to go right in 2014. This week we take a best-case, worst-case look at five offensive and defensive players who will go a long way in shaping the Cowboys' season. Henry Melton Best-case: The reunion works When Melton had Rod Marinelli as his defensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears, he was in Pro Bowl form. The Cowboys are banking on it happening, literally.

Pre-camp check: Defensive tackle

Overview: Season-ending ACL tears to Henry Melton and Nate Collins left the Bears exceedingly thin at defensive tackle last season. Determined to avoid a repeat scenario, the Bears spent two early draft picks to inject some youth and increase depth at the position, LSU’s Ego Ferguson (2nd round) and Arizona State’s Will Sutton (3rd round). Both rookies, along with re-signed veteran Nate Collins, are expected to fight for spots in the Bears’ defensive tackle rotation behind projected starters Jeremiah Ratliff and Stephen Paea, after the club allowed Melton and DT/DE Corey Wootton to...
