In 1962, Renfro was part of a 440-relay team that set a world record finishing with a since-broken time of 40.0 seconds. The Dallas Cowboys took Mel in the second round of the 1964 NFL Draft, but he was also selected by the Oakland Raiders in the tenth round of the 1964 AFL Draft.

He also led the Cowboys with seven interceptions. Mel possessed incredible speed and ability to read plays and move across the field with grace and agility, attacking and confounding wide receivers. He was an NFL All-Pro First Team selection in 1969 and earned ten NFL Pro Bowl invitations over his 14-year career. Mel was named the 1970 NFL Pro Bowl Most Valuable Player. Renfro played his entire career for “America’s Team” (1964-1977) and appeared in four Super Bowls (V, VI, X & XII) winning Super Bowl VI over the Miami Dolphins and Super Bowl XII over the Denver Broncos.
