Hey Ghost, isn't Poe from Memphis? You have him listed as being from Hampton.
I get your reasons for picking Fleener at 30, and wouldn't be upset with it. Harbaugh's Stanford team made great use of 3 TE sets, and Fleener was a huge part of that. There will be WRs later that might fit--I'm hoping Marvin Jones falls to the second round. He'd fit nicely with Crabs, Morgan and maybe another FA at the right price.
With all that said, though, I'm not sure they'd take Fleener if there's a big, fast RB available at 30, like Miller from the U. You pointed out that he's a possiblity a couple of weeks ago.
It appears likely that they're gonna take a playmaker in the first round, another weapon on offense. I'm just not sure its gonna be a WR (no one elite available in the first, plenty of options later on), or a TE (with Walker, VD, Rueland, and Bynam already available), and Frank getting near the end of his career (Hunter not likely to carry the full load as an every down, big back, and Dixon disappointing).
Your mock has both Fleener and Miller still on the board at #30--if that occurs, I'm not so sure they wouldn't take Miller instead. Whaddya think?
Remember, Harbaugh's Stanford team first started winning games with a big running back attack, making Toby Gerhart a Heisman candidate before Luck, or Fleener started making news. Think of what they could do with a big, fast RB, like Lamar Miller, in the backfield.
