He's awful as a blocker. Despite his workout numbers he's really not a quick-twitch, dynamic-moving guy. He's a straight-line, build-up player." The scout may be being overly critical of Fleener, but his first-round buzz seems to have died down in recent weeks. Apr 22 - 3:15 PM

Worth noting Charley Casserly has echoed scout's eval of Fleener as "straight-line, buildup player" lacking "quick-twitch" athleticism.
Why didn't you post the comments from the second scout that was mentioned? Almost all mocks I've seen have Fleener in late first to top 8 or so of second.
