Jamell Fleming to Cardinals: Video Highlights, Scouting Report and Analysis
A two-time first-team All-Big 12 player, Jamell Fleming is a lean, ballhawking cornerback out of Oklahoma and one of the better man defenders in the 2012 NFL draft. While Fleming's tackling undoubtedly needs work in almost every aspect, he is unquestionably talented and has the tools to be a starter in the NFL.
The 5'10" 187-pound former Sooner was named the Fiesta Bowl's defensive MVP after registering seven tackles and returning an interception 55 yards for a touchdown.
What the Experts Are Saying:
From ESPN's Todd McShay:
Shows good awareness to turn, locate and play the ball. Aggressive playing the ball and can break up passes without drawing an interference flag. Does a nice job of positioning himself to make play. Hands are good and can come down with routine interception. Playmaking skills have improved since junior tape
Isn't a real physical kid on the outside when asked to fend off blocks and tackle in the run game. Displays some savvy timing up snap counts and flying off the edge, but is a drag down guy only who can be handled and pushed past run plays easily. Plays exclusively on the boundary and his lack of elite make up speed might be covered up by playing in tight areas often.
Overall, Fleming is a very intriguing prospect who should come in and compete for a job on the first day of training camp. Our own Matt Miller likened Fleming's game to Brandon Flowers', and it's not hard to see why.
While Fleming may not be in the headlines after being selected, he has a chance to make plenty of headlines on the field at the NFL level.
Our draft expert Matt Miller had Fleming as his 29th rated player in the entire draft, so tremendous value for the Cardinals to get him at pick 80.
