An unnamed scout has taken aim Stanford product Coby Fleener saying he “might be the most overrated guy in the draft.”
“He’s awful as a blocker,” the scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, via ProFootballTalk.com. “Despite his workout numbers he’s really not a quick-twitch, dynamic-moving guy. He’s a straight-line, build-up player. All these reports about him being an athlete and this and that, they’re assuming that because he ran fast.”
However, another told the Journal Sentinel that Fleener was “a smart guy with a real good feel for route running.”
Fleener is the latest prospect to receive negative reviews from an unnamed scout — one said Matt Kalil is entitled and another called Robert Griffin III “selfish” — but he certainly won’t be the last.
