Be sure to get your spot in the 2nd Annual WCG Mock Draft
It is no secret, one of the positions that most draft experts will be calling for the Bears to pick this year will once again be the tight end spot. Unlike last year where it was because we didn't have one, this year with the reemergence of Desmond Clark it is for depth, blocking and another receiving threat.
|The University of Miami's Greg Olsen is the top rated TE in the draft, slightly ahead of Arizona State's Zach Miller. The 6'5" 252 pound junior is currently #30 on Scout Inc.'s Top 32 list.
The scouting report on Olsen is that he runs great routes, has better than average hands, has the ability to get open and is an effective blocker. The one thing that might allow Miami to have a first round draft pick for the 13th straight year is Olsen's versatility.
Olsen's college numbers are a bit skewed as he consistently faced double teams, which is a testament to how opposing teams plan for him and a testament for a lack of receivers at Miami. He won't have to face those odds in the pros. If he does end up with the Bears, they have the receivers to keep him to being covered by linebackers and nickel corners. Olsen is widely praised for his working ethic.
