    When you think about it the need of a TE is even bigger then what is let on considering that the Lions, Vikings, and Bears all run a Cover 2.

    I don't know if the TE itself is the problem. Whens the last time they EVEN TRIED to stretch the field with Bubba or Lee?

    I don't ming Olsen but don't draft him if you plan on using him like they use Bubba.

    Something about Olsen speaks BUST to me, he hasn't been consistent in college, isn't a strong blocker, and drops key passes. Just not sold on him, especially in the middle of the first round.

    I will throw the Packer brick at the TV if they select him at 16.

    Not like he had a good offense around him at Miami.

    This quote sticks out to me. I didn't hear anything about this.

    Olsen's football speed seems much slower to me than his timed speed. Plus he doesn't seem to play "strong". He goes straight down a lot on the first hit and just doesn't seem fierce enough for a TE. I too will throw a brick at the screen if he is our pick at 16.

    Great first post, welcome aboard and we happen to agree on Olsen. :)

    But really welcome to the site.
