Notes:

Was coached by Ted Ginn, Sr. as an Ohio prep. Saw action in all 14 games, making four starts, as a true freshman in 2008 and posted 36 tackles, two pass breakups and three interceptions. In ’09, he tallied 51-1-1 with half a tackle for loss in 13 games (three starts). Started all 13 games at the field corner in ’10, recording 56-3-5 with 2 1⁄2 tackles for loss. Suffered a concussion against Virginia. Posted 35-5-2 while starting 11 of the 12 games in which he played in ’11. Missed the season opener against Northwestern with a back injury. Team captain.

Positives:

Big, lean, athletic build. Very good eyes and instincts. Aware and assignment-sound in zone coverage — leverages the field and has a feel for routes. Good ball skills and reactions. Intercepts outside his frame. Flashes hitting ability when he has a clean shot. Football-smart, durable, four-year starter. 

Negatives:

Has short arms and small hands. Ability to press is a question mark. Average speed, twitch and closing burst. Hip stiffness shows in transition. Tends to clutch and grab. Underpowered, wrap-and-drag tackler. Production and performance fell off as a senior. Only shows up on game day. Questionable character.

Summary:

More smooth than sudden, Fletcher is a monotone, cover-2 cornerback who was used almost exclusively in disciplined, zone coverage in college. Has appealing size, ball skills and special-teams ability, but must recover from a disappointing season and poor Senior Bowl week showing.
