Fleming is an impressive prospect. He might not be totally NFL ready, but he has starting potential. He’s a big-bodied specimen that can move well for his size, showing explosiveness when engaging defenders.
Fleming is a very intelligent player and hard worker. He majored in aeronautics and astronautics at Stanford. His former college coach, David Shaw, said on ESPN, “The bottom line is he doesn’t get beat.”
He started for three years in a pro style offense and compares to Marcus Cannon a bit. He could play right tackle, may be able to kick inside to right guard. Just a depth guy from the start, but could push for a starting role down the line.
