Olsen to the Bears?

New, comments

There were many who did not think any tight end in this year's draft was worth the first round despite half the mock drafts have us taking one.  Moreover most seem to think Zach Miller was the best TE even thought Olsen is ranked higher.

Olsen laid his claim to the spot yesterday at the combine, putting down some pretty impressive numbers for a TE.

Greg Olsen, Miami tight end. Coming from the school that produced top-tier NFL tight ends Bubba Franks and Jeremy Shockey, Olsen became an instant story when he posted a 40-yard dash time of 4.45 seconds after measuring 6 feet 5 inches and 252 pounds. It wasn't quite the jaw-dropper that Maryland tight end Vernon Davis was last year (his 4.39 time helped him go No. 6 in the draft to San Francisco), but Olsen planted himself in the first two rounds in the minds of talent evaluators with his showing.
