- A closer look at the Cardinals' picks: Round 3/80 - Jamell Fleming, CB, 5-11, 206, Oklahoma...It was a big surprise the Cardinals took a corner this high because they have talent at the position. But they love Fleming's quickness and strength and ability to play in space. QUOTE TO NOTE: "I'm one of the best, I think, in my mind. I take special teams serious. When I was starting at corner, I was the leading tackler on special teams. I got a highlight reel just of special teams, throwing guys out of bounds and everything. I think that's one of the main reasons, too, why Arizona likes me, because I'm a hard worker and I'll do anything." -- Cornerback Jamell Fleming, the team's third-round selection. - The Sports Xchange
