BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his junior campaign. Led the Hurricanes in receptions last season posting 40/489/1, after 31/451/4 as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Athletic prospect who flashes brilliance yet does not show much consistency. Quick releasing off the line, fluid into routes and immediately gets to top speed. Finds the clearing in the defense, makes himself an available target and extends to catch the ball.

NEGATIVES: Not physical as a blocker and leans on opponents. Easily brought down at the point of attack running after the reception. Does not show a lot of playing strength.

ANALYSIS: Olsen is a solid prospect for the next level who needs to show more on the field. A tremendous athlete with great upside but needs to develop his game.

PROJECTION: Late First Round
