Player Overview

After starting the past three seasons as the Cardinal's right tackle and set to graduate this spring with a degree in aeronautics and astronautics, Fleming elected to give up his final year of athletic eligibility and declare himself eligible for the 2014 draft.

While overshadowed throughout much of his career, Fleming's 38 career starts and the competition he faced in the Pac-12 (and in practice) against a variety of fronts should give him an advantage in making the jump.

Fleming's length and power will be sure to intrigue proponents of drive-blocking schemes in the NFL, though less than ideal agility could force him inside to guard.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Certainly looks the part of an NFL offensive lineman, boasting a massive frame with broad shoulders, long arms and with his weight evenly distributed throughout his upper and lower body. At least fair initial quickness as a run blocker, occasionally firing out when he needs to get to the second level.

Powerful drive blocker. Latches on and controls opponents, keeping his feet moving through contact to move the defender off the ball. Uses his length and strong arms to catch rushers, pinning them inside or riding them out to keep the pocket clean. Missed two games with an ankle injury in 2011 but has otherwise remained healthy throughout his career.

WEAKNESSES: A bit lead-footed in pass coverage, struggling against speed rushers. Struggles with balance, coming off the ball too high. Drops his head on contact, relying on his power to knock defenders onto their heels but leaving himself vulnerable to swim moves. While powerful, isn't necessarily nasty, which could concern some given the especially physical close quarters play of the interior, where some will project Fleming. Worth noting, as well, that all 38 of Fleming's career starts have come at right tackle.

COMPARES TO: James Brewer, New York Giants - Like the 6-foot-6, 330-pound former Indiana Hoosier tackle, Fleming offers great size and power, but his lack of ideal quickness and agility could lead to a move inside in the NFL. If he commits to the position change, Fleming could develop into a starting option but it may take a year or two of development.

05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Patriots' picks: Round 4/140 - Cameron Fleming, T, 6-6, 318, Stanford...Despite returning all five starting offensive linemen from last season, New England continued to target the spot in this year's draft by taking the right tackle out of Stanford. Fleming started all 39 games he played for the school and given that he's about to receive a degree in aeronautics and astronautics is seen as a heady player who might have the potential to bump to guard at the next level. - The Sports Xchange
