Stanford's Coby Fleener used the draft process to separate himself from the rest of the tight end class. He's wowed scouts with this impressive pro-day workout, where he posted a 4.51 40-time, according to Pro Football Talk. This display of athleticism instantly pushed Fleener into the first-round discussion.
The other top tight end prospects all had some sort of negative attention rise during the process. Georgia's Orson Charles was cited for a DUI and Clemson's Dwayne Allen ran a very unimpressive 40-time at the Combine.
All the above factors and following slides play a role in Fleener's ranking as my top tight end prospect.
