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.

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.

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.

If the Rams don't take him 33rd, expect Irsay to take him, already gives Luck another threat, consider Coby came outta Standford
