This is our Coby Fleener scouting report the Tight End that plays with Andrew Luck for Stanford. This scouting report will be developed more and more as we get closer to the draft. For all of our other scouting reports click here
Jesse’s player comparison: Kevin Boss (entering the league, Boss has become a very good blocking tight end since then) Fleener also is faster and a more polished receiver, but they have that same uncommon size and long range speed.
Tony Scheffeler is another apt comparison
Round projection: late round 1, round two
NFLmocks preseason bio
Get used to hearing this guy’s name, because you will be hearing it a lot in the coming months and years. Fleener is a big tight end prospect that reminds me physically of Tony Scheffler. He has imposing size and excellent speed for his size, and he really broke out as a junior with Stanford when he had 28 receptions for 434 yards and seven touchdowns, three of which came in Stanford’s big bowl game win over Virginia Tech. His numbers won’t exactly jump out at you other than his bowl performance, but this is a guy ready to emerge as one of the country’s top tight ends. His combination of size and speed are scary for opposing defenses. He can line up as an in-line tight end, or possibly also as a wide receiver in some packages. He will be a great red zone threat and a very good target for Andrew Luck in 2011.
