2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
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.
