Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

Stanford tight end Coby Fleener is one of the better receiving prospects at his position in this draft class. With a good mix of toughness and short area quickness, he's poised to be one of the first tight ends selected in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Fleener has a long frame and makes the most of it as a huge target on short and intermediate routes. Although he doesn't possess great speed, his long strides get upfield in a hurry (especially if he catches a pass in stride). Very competitive, Fleener fights for yards after the catch and shows good discipline in his route running. An above average pass-catcher with good hands, he can pluck the ball with his hands away from his body.

Not a natural bender as a run-blocker, Fleener will need to add more upper body strength to drive his man off the line or to simply seal the edge. He does a much better job blocking away from the trenches and can definitely dominate smaller corners and safeties on the outside.

Fleener has the potential to have a long career as a serious red zone threat in the NFL. His excellent footwork when route running will really carry him. He needs to improve his in-line blocking in order to add a necessary dimension to his talents.

Doesn't possess great speed?

A 4.45 40 suggests otherwise. Should have known this before today - he was regularly reported as being one of the fastest players on Stanford this season.

49ers. 30th overall. Write it down. Can't pass up the Harbaugh-Stanford association and the fact that Jim Harbaugh likes using multiple tight ends in his offenses.
