RE: Greg Olsen

His fastest time was 4.45. He moved himself into the top 20 in the Draft.

RE: Greg Olsen

If Olsen moves up that probably means Zach Miller is moving down. Also a darn good pick at 27.

As much as we need a defensive pick I wouldn't be surprised(or upset) if Payton picked up a good TE. I think it will all depend on what we do in free agency in the coming weeks.

RE: Greg Olsen

I liked what I saw from Olsen. However there was this TE from a Div3 school working out too and he looked good i thought ran a 4.65 which is pretty good. Maybe pick him in later rounds and spend our 1st rounder on defence.

RE: Greg Olsen

sorry this is a big Dallas Clark. This is a gigantic difference in speed in the 40 and has to put him in the top 3 of the BAP that maybe there at 27.

RE: Greg Olsen

Michael Allan looks like, maybe, a late draft pick. Anyone know where he is being projected? I could see him on our side.

Hear them mention him as a second day pick on NFL Network.

RE: Greg Olsen

Wasn't this guy part of the worst Miami offense in a couple of decades?

RE: Greg Olsen

Well, they did have inconsistent quarterback play.

Our offense worked fine last year w/o an above average TE... so I'll pass on him with our pick. TE can be addressed in round 2 or 3 if need be. 40 times are vastly overrated.
