#3. Cameron Fleming, LT
There are times when Cameron Fleming looks like every bit the former New England Patriots’ starter who owns not one, but two Super Bowl rings. And there are other times when his play makes fans of the Cowboys long for the days of former third-round bust Chaz Green.
The left tackle position in the NFL is still one of the most valuable in all of football. Not only are they responsible for protecting a quarterback’s blindside, but they often face the top pass rushers from the opposing team.
As Cowboys fans, we have been spoiled with the play of left tackle Tyron Smith. The six-time Pro Bowler and six-time All-Pro has provided an elite-level of security at the position since the day he stepped on the field for the Cowboys more than nine years ago.
Unfortunately, the injuries have started to pile up for the relatively young 28-year old Smith. And there seems to be no relief in sight. Fleming was acquired for this exact purpose, as a key reserve. And although he plays adequately at times, he’s also capable of becoming a human turnstile on any given snap.
It’s time Dallas found themselves a better depth option, and preferably before the October 29th trade deadline.
