Washington Redskins Draft Profiles: Cameron Fleming, OT

Stephen Dunn

Blocking isn't rocket science, unless a rocket scientist is doing the blocking. We look at the draft profile for a redshirt junior tackle that majored in Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Cameron Fleming

Offensive Tackle

Height: 6'5"  Weight: 323 lbs

40 Time: 5.28 sec

Bench: 26 reps

Stanford

Strengths: Can't teach 6'5", 323. Fleming has the closest build to Andre Smith (Bengals RT) as there is in this draft.  His strength lies in the run game where he down blocks well and displays an ability to overwhelm smaller defenders at the second level. In pass pro he rarely loses the battle against power moves.  He has the power to anchor effectively. Field work aside, Fleming's biggest sell is his intangibles. He checks all the boxes with his intelligence and durability.

Weaknesses: Needs to improve on a number of fronts. His hands wander outside of the frame far too often. If he doesn't clean that up he will be called for numerous holding penalties at the next level.  Also, he finds himself on the ground too often. This is a direct result of his lack of foot-speed, often lunging to recover. He had the slowest 3-cone and shuttle time among all OT prospects at the combine.  He has the height and weight but isn't impressively built with a soft midsection.  He doesn't posses the 'nasty' you would expect from a guy of his size.

Bottom Line: Fleming is a work in progress. He would have benefited (from a football standpoint) had he stayed in Stanford for his senior year.  You have confidence in his mind and body, but his ability is just below average. As an Aeronautics and Astronautics major I wish I could say 'sky's the limit' with him but his ceiling is low as a long-shot OG/OT starter after much needed development.

Projected Round: Late 2nd

Teams He Fits Best On: Redskins, Buccaneers, Jets, Dolphins

Highlight Reel: vs. USC. Especially watch the 5:00-6:00 min. window. Whiffs on a block around 5:17 that puts his QB at risk, then follows up with a solid mirroring on an edge rusher.
