Cornerback Jamell Fleming was the only former OU player to participate in Tuesday’s drills for defensive backs. The Arlington, Texas, native had a terrific day. Fleming’s 10.75-second time in the 60-yard shuttle run was the best in years at the Combine, regardless of position. His 3.97-second time in the 20-yard shuttle was tied for fourth among all participants in 2012.
Fleming was also among the top defensive backs in the broad jump (10 feet, 5 inches) and bench press (23 repetitions). He ran a swift 4.43-second 40-yard dash unofficially, but the official time wound up being a tenth slower.
Regardless, Fleming did a lot Tuesday to enhance his stock. He was already considered a potential second-day pick, perhaps as early as the second round. He could be one of the top cornerbacks in the draft and perhaps the first Sooner off the board.
