Chris Olave Draft Profile
There are many reasons why Chris Olave has been trending upwards as this NFL Draft season has continued. He has the speed to be a deep threat in the NFL. On top of that, he has late hands, has sure hands, is skilled at tracking the ball in the air, and he is incredibly smooth with his body movements. Olave combines all of this with the fact that he is already a skilled route-runner, making him one of the most NFL-ready wide receivers in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Olave is lean, skinny, slim, or however else you’d like to describe it. Of course, so is Ja’Marr Chase, and he had the best rookie WR season of all time. Because Olave is slender and not as strong as some receivers, he doesn’t really break tackles or do much after the catch, unless he has run by everyone. Olave also isn’t going to do anything as a blocker.
