Notes:

Given name is Jacoby. Also starred on the hardwood as an Illinois prep in addition to playing tight end, receiver and safety. Redshirted in 2007. As a true freshman in ’08, caught 13 passes for 176 yards (13.5-yard average) and zero touchdowns in 12 games. Played all 13 games in ’09, starting four, and tallied 21-266-1 (12.7). Had back surgery following season. Started 6-of-13 games in ’10 and snagged 28-434-7 (15.5). Led all Stanford receivers in touchdowns in ’11 after posting 34-667-10 (19.6) in 13 games (five starts). Did not open the game in base packages in eight games and was knocked out of the Arizona game with a head injury after a helmet-to-helmet collision.

Positives:

Excellent body length, leaping ability and catching radius — can climb the ladder and take the ball away from defensive backs. Outstanding athlete with the competitive playing speed to scream up the seam and threaten defenses vertically — big-play ability was accentuated in the 2011 Orange Bowl vs. Virginia Tech. Deceptively eats cushion with smooth strides and can get on top of coverage. Fluid in-air adjustments. Well-versed in a pro-style offense. Highly competitive. Has an ingrained Midwestern work ethic, takes instruction well and has solid overall character. 

Negatives:

Very lean build with little bulk. Average physicality and core strength — underpowered blocker. Back injury has affected lifting and requires close scrutiny — always could be restricting as a blocker. Has buildup speed and is not overly crafty in his routes changing direction or popping out of his breaks.

Summary:

A pass-catching weapon capable of contributing readily in a slot role, Fleener compares favorably to Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen and can become a formidable big-play receiving threat if he can stay healthy.
