2012 NFL Mock Draft: Stanford TE Coby Fleener Projected For Broncos

The Denver Broncos certainly won't be drafting the next John Elway since they are battling deep into the 2012 NFL Playoffs, but might the team look at Andrew Luck's tight end in college, Coby Fleener? Over at The Big Lead, Fleener is projected to the Broncos with the No. 25 overall pick.

Fleener set career-highs in his senior year with the Stanford Cardinal, catching 34 passes for 667 yards and 10 touchdowns. He finished his career with 96 catches for 1,543 yards and 18 touchdowns. TBL writes:

Too high? Perhaps. But what a safety valve he becomes for Tim Tebow. And if Tebow fails, the next QB inherits a terrific TE.

The Broncos will also need to decide if they should take a tight end in the first round. Clemson's Dwayne Allen has previously been connected in mock draft with the Broncos, but cornerback, running back and safety could all be other directions for the team look at in April.
