2012 NFL Combine: Falcons Interview Stanford Tight End Coby Fleener

The Atlanta Falcons continued to poke around the tight ends aisle of the 2012 NFL Draft this week, sitting down with Stanford tight end Coby Fleener, who was interviewed by Atlanta tight ends coach Chris Scelfo. As always, Fleener echoed the sentiments of any logical player at the position about the prospect of playing behind All-Pro Tony Gonzalez for one season. Gonzalez is now considered a lock to retire after the coming 2012 season:

"Absolutely, I’d like to learn from Tony Gonzalez," Fleener said. "I’d be excited to."

The Falcons might have competition if they're seriously interested in Fleener. They don't pick until No. 55 in the second round, and Fleener's former Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh could take Fleener to the 49ers.
