Greg Olsen was named 1st-team All-ACC earlier this week, which makes it even more evident that the junior from New Jersey is likely headed to the NFL as opposed to returning for his senior season at Miami.
Olsen leads the team with 38 receptions and is second on the team in receving yards with 444 yards. He has also scored one touchdown.
Sources believe Olsen will be one of the first tight ends selected in the 2007 NFL Draft.
As a four-year player, who has been successful in college, it would be in his best interest to move on to the next level of his football career.
In 2005, Olsen had 31 receptions for 451 yards and four touchdowns.
Other top tight ends in the 2007 NFL Draft include: Joe Newton (Oregon State), Matt Spaeth (Minnesota), Clark Harris (Rutgers), Tyler Ecker (Michigan), Martrez Milner (Georgia).
Former UM recruit Zach Miller (Arizona State) is another underclassmen who could be a top selection if he comes out early.
