Chris Olave News

  • Chris Olave drafted by the Saints · Apr 29, 2022

    Chris Olave was drafted by the New Orleans Saints with the 11th overall pick.

    The Saints were clearly in love with Olave as they traded up in the draft to select him at #11 overall. Ironically, his teammate (Garrett Wilson) went at tenth overall to the Jets. There are long-term questions about the quarterback position in New Orleans, but Olave has a high floor and should be one of the safer receiver picks as he comes in with a ton of experience. We really don't know what Michael Thomas has left in the tank, so there was a clear need for the Saints as the Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway experiment didn't really work. Olave looks like a relatively safe dynasty pick in the middle of round one.

  • Chris Olave mocked to Eagles · Mar 22, 2022

    In Mel Kiper's most recent mock draft, rookie receiver Chris Olave is projected as a selection by the Eagles

    Olave ran a 4.39 forty-time at the NFL Combine, answering any lingering questions about speed. While he failed to crest the 1,000-yard plateau in any of his four seasons at Ohio State, not uncommon for Buckeye receivers, he was a consistent yardage producer and amassed 32 touchdowns in his last three seasons. The Eagles selected receiver DeVonta Smith in the first-round of the 2021 NFL Draft and remain in need of upside talent at the position. A selection of Olave, DLF's rookie WR5 and R8 overall, should provide immediate opportunity for the second OSU (Garrett Wilson) selection in the first-round of 2022.

  • Chris Olave mocked to Eagles · Mar 10, 2022

    In Todd McShay's most recent NFL Mock Draft, rookie receiver Chris Olave was mocked to the Eagles with their 19th-overall selection

    Olave was one of the big winners during the Combine after measuring in at 6' and running a 4.39 forty, checking all necessary boxes to secure a first-day selection. Never eclipsing 1,000 yards in his four years, not uncommon with Ohio State receivers, Olave was still seen as a solid NFL prospect due to his savvy route running and ability to bring down the deep ball. A selection by the Eagles will provide for an immediate starting opportunity and should provide a runway for material production in his rookie season. He's listed as DLF's rookie WR5 and at R8 (overall).

  • Chris Olave posts a 4.39 40 · Mar 4, 2022

    Former Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave ran a 4.39 40 at the 2022 NFL Draft Scouting Combine.

    Olave had an impressive day and his unofficial time was actually 4.26. Regardless, that's a fast time for a receiver who has been overshadowed in the draft process by his teammate Garrett Wilson. It's a much needed boost for Olave, who should be a first day selection at this point. While he never put gaudy statistics for the Buckeyes (other than his 35 career touchdown receptions), it's clear he has the skills to be successful at the NFL level. At this point, Olave looks like a top-10 selection in upcoming rookie drafts and he slots in as our 8th best prospect at the moment.
