2012 NFL Draft: Ronnie Cameron Scouting Report

It's no longer a secret that Gene Smith has a propensity for picking smaller school players. There's a number of reasons that could possibly explain why, but with 9 of his 20 draft picks coming from outside the NCAA's FBS and players from smaller schools within the FBS like Rice, Middle Tennessee State, Wyoming and Louisiana Tech, it's clearly a trend.

So it's not particularly crazy to think that Smith will continue his small school ways. In fact, it's a little crazy to think he won't. So no one should be surprised that Old Dominion defensive tackle Ronnie Cameron (the 26th ranked small school prospect on Josh Buchanan's latest rankings) tweeted that he has scheduled his first visit with the Jaguars, one of the 11 teams he listed as showing interest during his time at the Casino Del Sol All-Star Game.

Ronnie Cameron
Position: Defensive Tackle
Height: 6-2
School: Old Dominion
Weight: 299
Age: 22
Projected Round: 7th-UDFA


Pros: Named CAA Defensive Player of the Year and a 1st-team FCS All-American by many publications as well as the American Football Coaches Association. Good size and athleticism. Highly productive during his two seasons at ODU.

Cons: Played against a low level of competition for a school that has never had a player get drafted by the NFL.

---

Cameron transferred from Hofstra when they disbanded their football program and made the most of his time at Old Dominion racking up 145 tackles and 12 sacks in two seasons and earning several honors in the CAA (the conference at which CB Derek Cox and PR Scotty McGee played). Whether or not he can produce similarly at the next level will be a tough question that the Jaguars and 31 other teams will have to ask themselves.
