Notes:
A 2006 All-ACC First-Team selection, after earning All-ACC honorable mention in 2005...In 2006, Olsen recorded 40 receptions, for 489 yards, but scored just one TD...Another in a long line of standout tight ends to play for the Hurricanes...Above-average athleticism, with adequate size for the next level...Good balance and feel for the game...Has the ability to consistently find the seem in defenses and battles for the ball in traffic...Solid routerunner with the ability to catch the ball in stride and make long gains...Has the strength to break arm tackles and makes solid gains after contact...Needs to become a better blocker, as he struggles at times to recognize blitzes...Excellent field vision, but doesn't always play up to his talent level...Still, regarded as the top player at his position in this draft and one of only two tight ends with first-round grades.
