04/30/2012 - 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

04/27/2012 - CB Jamell Fleming, Oklahoma -- More of a battler than a technically sound corner, Fleming tested as the strongest cornerback at the Combine with 23 reps of 225 pounds to go with a very good size-speed combination. He brings a physical presence to the Cardinals opposite 2011 first-round pick Patrick Peterson.

03/24/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT TOP DEFENSIVE BACKS: Jamell Flemming, Oklahoma, 5-11, 206...Size and speed were never Flemming's strong suit, so scouts were more mindful of his memorable play during the Senior Bowl practices than they were his largely forgettable data from the scouting combine. In college,e he was a two-time first-team All-Big 12 player because of his impressive combination of tenacity and natural man coverage skills. Even when coaches asked him to play off in Senior Bowl workouts, it was easy to see his instinctive movement and great ball reaction. At the combine, Flemming had a pedestrian unofficial clocking of 4.53 seconds in the 40, but his 60-yard shuttle time of 10.75 seconds led all defensive backs. His college career included some academic issues that forced him to attend junior college and miss spring practices in 2009 and 2011. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

03/14/2012 - Oklahoma Pro Day: Cornerback Jamell Fleming and offensive tackle Donald Stephenson both stood on their numbers from the NFL Combine. Last month, Fleming ranked top-five among cornerbacks in the 3-cone drill (6.71) and short shuttle (3.97) while Stephenson ran the fasted 40-yard dash time of all the offensive linemen (4.94). Tight end James Hanna, who was one of the biggest combine "winners", also stood on his impressive numbers from Indianapolis. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/25/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL WEDNESDAY: CB Jamell Fleming, Oklahoma: Demonstrating good quickness, agility and physicality Fleming has been the surprising standout for a North team boasting a talented cornerback group, not the least of which is Nebraska's Alfonzo Dennard. Like Dennard, Fleming projects best in a man cover scheme and he's been beaten on occasion this week due to the fact that the Minnesota Vikings have asked him to play off a great deal. Still, Fleming has shown enough athleticism to turn and run with receivers and has demonstrated a very quick burst to the ball. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

12/10/2011 - 2011 ALL-BIG 12 FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DB Jamell Fleming, Oklahoma, Sr., has been selected All-Big 12 Conference First Team for the 2011 college football season as voted on by the league's 10 head coaches, who are not permitted to vote for their own players. - Oklahoma football

10/22/2011 - Defensive tackle Casey Walker and cornerback Jamell Fleming were held out of the starting lineup for No. 3 Oklahoma on Saturday night because of injuries. Walker's left thumb and wrist were wrapped as he walked around the field in a T-shirt instead of a uniform as the Sooners warmed up to face Texas Tech. Walker had started five of Oklahoma's six games this season, and the Sooners came out with only three linemen in the other. Walker spoke in a pregame huddle of the team's defensive linemen. Fleming had started 19 straight games before sitting out with a knee injury. - AP Sports

10/10/2011 - WEEK 6 BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jamell Fleming, Oklahoma, CB, Sr, Arlington, Texas...Jamell Fleming had a career-high 13 tackles in No. 1/3 Oklahoma's 55-17 win over No. 10/11 Texas. The senior cornerback also returned a fumble 56 yards for a touchdown and forced a fumble. Eleven of Fleming's tackles were unassisted and two went for three yards in losses. The Oklahoma defense held UT to 259 yards, 161.8 yards below its average, and 17 points, 17.2 under its average. One of UT's touchdowns came on a kickoff return. The other occurred with 2:31 remaining in the game. - Big 12 football

08/25/2011 - CB Jamell Fleming, who led the Sooners in interceptions last season with five, is back with the team. He was not enrolled in the spring semester for reasons that are not entirely clear. One report simply had him refusing to enroll. Whatever the case, despite missing the spring, he has made himself eligible again. He missed spring practice, which is probably why he's No. 2 on the depth chart behind Gabe Lynn. Still, he's back, and it's a boon to the Sooners. - The Sports Xchange

07/12/2011 - 2011 JIM THORPE AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Jamell Fleming, Oklahoma, CB, has been named one of 37 players selected to the Preseason Thorpe Award watch list for the 2011 college football season. The Thorpe Award, given annually to the nation's top defensive back, is one of the most coveted awards in college football and is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2011. - The Jim Thorpe Association

07/10/2011 - The Oklahoma Sooners received good news over the weekend as senior Jamell Fleming has returned to the program after leaving the school prior to spring semester due to academics. The 5'11, 192 pound Fleming had earned Honorable Mention All-Big 12 accolades last year after leading the Sooners with five interceptions and ranking second in the entire country with 19 passes defensed. Fleming not only demonstrated an ability to make big plays - he did so in critical games, coming through with two interceptions against NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated senior quarterback for the 2012 NFL Draft Ryan Tannehill (Texas A&M), an interception against Florida State's Christian Ponder (now a Minnesota Viking as the No. 12 overall pick of the 2011 draft) and was recognized as the Defensive Player of the Game in Oklahoma's 48-20 thrashing of Connecticut in the Fiesta Bowl largely due to his 55-yard interception return for a touchdown in the third quarter. The return for a score was the longest by any Sooner in the Bob Stoops era. NFL scouts will certainly be keeping an eye on Fleming. Besides his prowess as a cornerback, Fleming has also demonstrated the hustle and reliable open field tackling skills to be a force on special teams. Fleming led the Sooners with 18 special teams tackles in 2008 and was second on the club with nine a year later. Fleming, according to the depth chart on Oklahoma's official team page, is currently listed as second behind sophomore Gabe Lynn. Should he be able to re-emerge as a standout starter for the Sooners, he certainly ranks as one to watch for the 2012 draft. NFLDraftScout.com currently rates him as a 5th-6th round value and the No. 17 rated cornerback, overall. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

07/09/2011 - Cornerback Jamell Fleming, who earned All-Big 12 honors in 2010, has rejoined the team after leaving school before the spring semester due to academic issues. Fleming, who was second nationally in passes broken up, will be a senior this season. He will likely have to win his job back from sophomore Gabe Lynn, who replaced Fleming in the spring. - Jake Trotter, News Oklahoma
