Only a newbie would think a player's stats would follow him wherever he goes EVEN if the offensive system is different, LMFAO.
Oh, and where the hell did u get data that he is 265 lbs? That shows your lack of due diligence.
You've got to go with your strengths. Alex has shown a preference for his TE's, has a habit of over-throwing passes about a foot over the head of 6 foot tall receivers and then you look at Fleener's size, his leaping ability, strong hands, his athleticism and imagine this team down in the red-zone, with VD and Fleener both releasing......that's going to A. Give Alex more confidence with two huge sure-handed targets out there and B. Give the defense nightmares having two cover two big, insanely athletic tight-ends.
True, Alex does seem to click with TE's. But there are other tall TE's available in the draft later. The problem I have with him is... I doubt he will be a good run & pass blocker in the NFL. With Harbaugh's system, I believe our TE's need to be able to do all 3 (receive, runblock, passblock). Would be a nice pick in the 2nd tho.
