In 2020 as a freshman Fleming saw action in 8 games for the Buckeyes as he made 7 receptions for only 74 yards for an average of 10.6 yards per reception, with no TDs, and only QB rating when targeted of 38.6.

As a sophomore in 2021 he played 8 games and had only 12 catches for 86 yards for an average of 7.2 yards per catch, with one TD, and QB rating when targeted of 69.2.

As a junior in 2022 he played 10 games and hauled in 29 catches for 462 yards for an average of 15.9 yards per catch, with 6 TDs, and an elite QB rating when targeted of 127.0.

Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Has smooth acceleration and deceiving speed. Balanced and very fast with the ball in his hands.
  • A fluid mover capable of creating some separation over the middle of the field, Fleming has the long arms and soft hands to provide a sizable catch radius.
  • Fleming also has value as a catch-and-run threat, running hard and consistently picking up yards after the catch.
  • Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback's best friend - passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he'll come down with it.
  • Tracks the ball well downfield and shows good ball skills, including the ability to go up and high-point it in contested-catch situations.
  • Fleming shows suddenness off the line of scrimmage and accelerates quickly, and his top-end speed is among the best in this draft.
  • A versatile weapon, proving to be effective inside in the slot and outside on the perimeter. Makes plays at all levels of the field.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Fleming doesn’t have the ability as a run blocker or the violent run-after-catch ability.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • Fleming also lacks suddenness as a route runner, and that is a potential issue at the next level.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
