Positives: Quick, explosive defensive tackle who consistently makes plays on the football. Fires off the snap, fluid changing direction and effectively protects himself with his hands.

Gets leverage on opponents and shows the ability to hold the point.
Negatives: Undersized and easily knocked off balance by the initial block. Slow shedding blocks once engaged. Gets engulfed by opponents. Lacks great pursuit speed.
Analysis: Cameron was a terrific college player, but he lacks the size/speed numbers to be anything other than a backup in the NFL. He plays hard, smart football and can be used as a three-technique tackle and special teams player at the next level.
