C Eric Olsen Scouting Report

C Eric Olsen, Notre Dame
Pos. Rank: 5 Grade: 5th Round Height: 6-4 Weight: 306 40: 5.25 Year: 4-Sr.

The Good: Hard-working blocker who plays with a nasty attitude. Displays good blocking vision, works well with teammates, and fights until the whistle blows. Bends his knees, gets leverage on opponents, and works his hands throughout the action. Relatively effective blocking in motion. Does a good job with shotgun snaps.

The Bad: Gets minimal movement run blocking. Struggles turning defenders off the ball.

The Verdict: Olson has shown an improved game the past three seasons and has both the size and growth potential to play at the next level. The ability to be used at any of the three interior offensive line positions enhances his value. A solid developmental prospect who could break into a starting lineup two or three seasons down the road.
