Found April 10, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
Today at The Football Fan Spot, we have Coby Fleener, a tight end prospect out of Stanford. He spent 4 years at Stanford as a tight end, starting for 3 years from 2009-2011. He and Andrew Luck hooked up for a team leading 10 touchdowns in 2011 and 17 touchdowns over the last 2 seasons. His 34 catches for 667 yards in 2011 put him 2nd on the team. At The Combine, Fleener benched 27 reps of 225 at 6-6 244 and though he did not run because of an ankle injury, he is expected to run in the 4.5s or 4.6s at his Pro Day, which would make him one of the fastest tight ends in this draft class. He’s a borderline first round pick who probably won’t make it out of the first 40 picks. He has a bright future ahead of him.

Q&A: Brett Nottingham

The biggest storyline of Stanford’s spring camp is the battle to replace Andrew Luck, and Brett Nottingham is the man at the center of that story. After redshirting his freshman year, Nottingham beat out two older players to win the backup job last season, showing flashes of brilliance whenever he came in for mop-up duty.

Q&A: Levine Toilolo

After losing all of 2010 to injury, tight end Levine Toilolo came back last year and had a strong season as a member of the “Tree Amigos” tight end corps, alongside Coby Fleener and Zach Ertz. The Stanford offense made extensive use of three tight-end formations, with different players taking their turns in the spotlight.
