Ohio State: Chris Olave, Wide Receiver, Junior
Chris Olave has truly blossomed into not only an emerging Big Ten prospect, but an overall emerging wide receiver prospect with his play this season. Coming off of a third-team All-Big Ten selection last season, he has gotten even better this year. He is currently leading the team in receptions as he and Garrett Wilson have become perhaps the best receiving duo in the country. His route running and speed have proven to be a problem for opposing corners as he averaged 14.7 yards per catch on 36 receptions this season.
Watching tape on Olave, he consistently wins against 1-on-1 coverage. Although it always helps having a potential top-5 draft pick at quarterback, Olave’s talents can easily transfer to most if not all offenses in the NFL. The cherry on top for Chris Olave, is his special teams impact he provides. Last season, he had a blocked punt and a recovered onside kick. That kind of versatility will always do nothing but boost his draft stock.
