Fleener had an outstanding pro day that showcased his excellent athletic talent, speed and mobility that might rocket up his overall value in the draft. Grant Cohn of the Press Democrat files this report.
Coby Fleener just ran an unofficial 4.45 40-yard dash at his Pro Day and emerged as the Niners’ no-brainer first round pick if he’s still available for them in the upcoming NFL draft.
Interestingly, the Seattle Seahawks are interested in him, perhaps stealing him away from the 49ers.
Uh-oh, 49ers fans, Seahawks are talking to Stanford TE Coby Fleener. yfrog.com/kfqogfyj— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) March 22, 2012
The Seahawks probably would either have to take a risk and draft him early in the first round, or hope he ends up dropping to them in the second round. Seattle could use a tight end to further improve their offensive diversity.
