NFL Mock Draft 2012: Bears Pick TE Coby Fleener In Latest Mock Draft

The latest mock draft from analyst Brad Wells suggests Chicago Bears might have some seller's remorse on trading TE Greg Olsen to the Carolina Panthers. According to Wells, the Bears are likely to target a pass-catching Stanford Cardinal tight end:

Coby Fleener | Tight end | Stanford: The Bears made a big trade for Brandon Marshall this offseason in a rather transparent effort to help Jay Cutler re-live his "glory days" when he was in Denver. Another element for Cutler during that time was tight end Tony Scheffler, who the Broncos eventually traded away for a bag of peanuts and a ball of lint. Fleener provides Cutler with big play ability from the tight end position, and likely has shot up most draft boards after displaying 4.45 speed at his Pro Day.

Fleener, who hails from Lemont, Illinois, has gone in the second round of some mock drafts. Here is a look at his statistics from the 2011 NCAA season:
