The New York Giants have selected Stanford tight end Coby Fleener in the first round of the Rant Sports 2012 NFL Mock Draft. Given Fleener’s fantastic pro day, I could not pass up the opportunity to take him when seeing the first 31 picks.
This is simply due to the fact that I believe Fleener’s Pro Day will have scouts around the league drooling over him. The Giants were in attendance, but I’m not sure he falls all the way to No. 32.
That is not to say my fellow writers who picked ahead of me are wrong; it is just my estimation.
If I’m being honest, the Fleener pick is more of a hopeful one than what I actually think Jerry Reese will do. The Giants would be stacked at the tight end position if they added Fleener to go along with recently signed Martellus Bennett.
However, I’m not sure that the Giants could pass up the opportunity to take Fleener if the draft plays out like we’ve shown you in our collaborative draft.
