2012 NFL Mock Draft: Stanford TE Coby Fleener Predicted For Broncos By Albert Breer

In any NFL mock draft, we can always spin an argument to justify why this team or that team should or should not draft player X or Y. And then when the actual picks happen, we are confounded because, "How can my team make that pick!?" But during mock draft season it becomes all too tiresome to see the Denver Broncos glued to a defensive tackle. The NFL Network's Albert Breer, however, has predicted Stanford Cardinal tight end Coby Fleener for the Broncos in his latest mock draft.

Breer writes:

Just a hunch here. Nothing would help Tebow more than an athletic tight end, and former Stanford QB John Elway's aware of how good Fleener is when healthy.

Daniel Fells, Dante Rosario, Julius Thomas and Virgil Green all disappeared for the most part later in the season, especially the latter two who were rookies. Fleener would be the sure-fire catching tight end, and Tim Tebow needs that safety valve when Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker are unable to break free.
