With the 30th pick of the 2012 NFL draft, the San Francisco 49ers select Coby Fleener, TE Stanford
After signing Cox and resigning Rogers, the CBs depth is well in tact and Jenkins is too much of a risk. After resigning OLB Brooks, the position is needed at depth so Branch is not worth it. All the top WRs for the first are gone and there is no reason to reach. The only other candidate is Still to compete for BPA on my Niner board. He would be a fine addition to the defense, but the fact is, our TE unit needs to be addressed for one single fact: Delaine Walker is a UFA after this season.
The wisest choice for the team will be to shore up that position given the nature and scheme of HarbaughRoman's offense, Fleener is a perfect fit. Harbaugh's offense depends on the TE position and after his work out, Coby Fleener stands as the #1 candidate in his class. His extension, incredibly soft yet very strong hands coupled with his measurables at 6'6", 245 plus his knowledge of Harbaugh's TE route tree provides an "instant" weapon. Harbaugh will be delighted that one of "his" own from college will join him.
Fleener will be able to contribute from day one.
