I personally would hate it, but there's strong interest.

Olsen and Drew Stanton are coming in next week to work out together. I can think of nothing worse than taking him at 9, but there you go.

Taking Olsen @ 9 would be horrible. He didn't even have a great college career (alot due to the bad line and QB at the U but still) . . . he had a excellent combine and that is where the hype is. He, IMO, is the best TE prospect in this draft . . . but not at 9 . . . no sir.

What do you think of ILB Buster Davis? What round would you take him in?

There's no way we'd take him at 9.....I doubt he'd take him in round one period tho you never know....we need an imoact player at 9 and I don't think Olsen would be it as much as I am a Canes fan.

Ozzy rules!!

I would think that would be an absolutely abysmal pick.

I Would Only Take Olsen If We Can Trade Down To Late Teens Or Twenties And Get More Picks....but Honestly I Rather Not Spend A Round 1 Pick On A Te.....

I like him. I think you put him in a fast flowing system and cover him up, he'll make a lot of tackles. He's very aggressive and he needs to control that aspect of his game because he can play out of control and overrun plays, but he's always around the ball. I think he could go in round 1. I know the Patriots are keen on him. He's certainly a top 50 pick.

No way would I want Olsen in the 1st. He hasn't shown a nose for the endzone that you want in a TE. He can run and played on some bad teams, such that his mediocre stats may be misleading. Nevertheless, I would only take a TE in the 1st who is an absolute special guy. I don't see it with Olsen. There are too many premium positions that need to be addressed for this team. If we were already solid with speedy receivers, left side of the line and quarterback, I could see taking Olsen to round out a great offense. Teams like New Orleans or Chicago would have that luxury. Miami does not.

We do need to add a TE, but I would do it later. I do think that we could get a good TE starting with our 2B pick, 3rd or 4th. Since Zach Miller only ran a 4.8, he could be there at 60. In the 3rd and 4th, guys like Chandler, Patrick, and Spaeth figure to be around. Chandler and Spaeth are solid blockers and could team with Martin and Peele to give us a TE by committee.

To this day, other than Keith Jackson's brief flash, some of our best TE play came when we used the combination of Dan Johnson, Bruce Hardy, and Joe Rose. Martin, Spaeth/Chandler, and Peele could be a new committee.

Yes, we need a TE, but we are better served taking the BPA.
