Prospect Profile: Steve Fleming

Steve Fleming
School: Arizona
Ht: 6-6 Wt: 260 40: 4.82 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Became a full-time starter as a senior and posted 23/332/2 after 24/222/2 the prior year.

Positives: Pass-catching tight end with reliable hands. Gets off jams releasing into pass routes, displays good focus and runs relatively well. Extends to make the tough catch in traffic and consistently plucks the ball away from his frame. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage and seals defenders from the action with good body positioning.

Negatives: Not quick off the snap, strong at the point and does not finish as a blocker. Cannot go over the middle, take a big hit, and hold onto the ball. Rarely makes plays in the secondary.

Analysis: A prospect who's shown great improvement the past two seasons, Fleming has potential as a second tight end at the next level, yet must significantly improve his playing strength to have any shot of sticking on a roster.
