Overview

Olsen is a good college center with excellent size, strength and technique. He works his blocks hard and will fight from snap to whistle to get the job done. He does a good job of getting a fit with his hands to control and steer opponents but does not always bring his feet with him when reacting to movement. He is not real nimble or quick getting to the second level when on the back side and is not real effective when blocking in space. He is not a natural knee-bender and struggles to keep his pad level down to leverage his blocks. He has a chance on size, competitiveness and intelligence but lacks the physical tools to be a front-line player.

Analysis

Strengths

Tall interior lineman with great bulk. Gets his hands inside defenders' pads and has the strength to generate a good push. Has a bit of a mean streak and fights to the end of the whistle every snap. Heady player who knows his blocking assignments and takes good angles.

Weaknesses

Keeps his pads too high and loses leverage, because he is not a natural knee-bender. Lacks initial quickness to shock defenders and does not have the agility to be effective in space. Has inconsistent balance and forgets to move his feet underneath him at times.
