Fleming (6-foot-6, 318 pounds) was a stalwart up front, starting 39 games over the last three seasons, twice earning All-Pac-12 honorable mention and making the all-conference second-team as a redshirt junior. In that time, Stanford had three 1,300-yard rushers and led the conference in fewest sacks allowed this season.

Left guard David Yankey is also forgoing his remaining season of eligibility to enter the draft; center Khalil Wilkes and right guard Kevin Danser are graduating. That leaves left tackle Andrus Peat as the lone returning starter as Stanford seeks its fifth consecutive appearance in a BCS/"New Year's Six" bowl game.

Of course, Peat emerged as the top lineman on the West Coast this season and is widely regarded as a future top draft pick. Stanford also has several other promising players from its touted 2012 recruiting class ready to step in.
