Mel Kiper 2012 NFL Mock Draft: New York Giants Select Coby Fleener

In Mel Kiper's latest 2012 NFL Mock Draft, the ESPN analyst projects that the New York Giants will use the No. 32 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to select Coby Fleener, a tight end from Stanford.

Despite signing Martellus Bennett this offseason, the Giants are thin at the tight end position. Fleener, a 6-foot-6, 244-pounder who caught 37 passes for 667 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, should be able to make an instant contribution wherever he lands thanks to his athleticism, size and ability to catch the football.

The Giants won a Super Bowl, but they aren't without needs. Tight end is a spot they really need to upgrade, and Fleener is the best one available.
