Combine profile: Stanford RT Cameron Fleming


Name: Cameron Fleming

Position: Right tackle

Height/weight: 6-5/323

School/class: Stanford/Redshirt junior

Projected round: 4th-5th

Career highlights: Started three years for the Cardinal, including a redshirt freshman season blocking for Andrew Luck. Stanford ranked 11th in the nation in sacks allowed in 2013 with 1.14 per game, and Fleming was named to the All-Pac-12 second team.

Did you know?: Fleming’s parents are in the military, and Fleming, a Texas native that grew up in the shadow of NASA, majored in aeronautics and astronautics at Stanford. He hopes to build jet planes once his career is complete.

Quotes: “My No. 1 strength would probably be my strength… I hope to prove my worth, that I’m worth a high-round draft pick and that I’m probably the best right tackle coming out of this draft class and let it be known.”

“Of course I’ve spoken to (former Stanford teammate Jonathan Martin.) I don’t get into all that, that doesn’t concern me. But my relationship with him is pretty good. I talk to him more than any of the other guys in the NFL just because he played my position—he was a left tackle, I was a right tackle—so we kind of had a dynamic together…I think we have two different styles of play. He’s a little bit lighter, quicker kind of guy. I’m bigger, stronger and I move with a little bit more purpose.”

Panthers’ level of interest: Carolina general manager Dave Gettleman likes his linemen, and after an up-and-down year for Byron Bell, the team could look to the draft to bring some competition to Bell at right tackle in Spartanburg. It’s also clear someone as intelligent and polished as Fleming would be an attractive prospect to all teams.
