Blaine Sumner
Position: DT
Class:  5Sr
Conference: Non-Division I
HT: 6-1.5
WT: 335
40 Time: 5.21
Biography: "All-Conference and All-American selection as a senior after leading the team in tackles, posting 10/10/5.5. Junior numbers included 57.5/11.5/5.5."

Positives: "Undersized prospect who plays bigger and faster than his measurables. Breaks down well, chases the action hard, and is forceful up the field on the blitz. Shows good awareness, is instinctive, and remains disciplined with assignments. Can flip his hips in coverage, uses his hands to protect himself, and quickly changes direction. Covers a good amount of area on the field."

Negatives: "Played linebacker in college, but he?s small, easily controlled at the point, and can be taken from the action by blocks."

Analysis: "Olson was an ultra-productive small school defender who got the most from his ability. Size is a limiting factor, but he has a special teams mentality and could find a spot at the next level as a backup safety, possibly in a zone system."

Projection: 7th
