The Chargers had been looking at Vernon Carey at this spot since hearing he was slipping from several teams' boards. But when Philadelphia traded up to select Shawn Andrews ahead of Miami, the Dolphins countered by trading up one spot to secure Carey as they viewed tackle as their biggest area of need.
Igor Olshansky, chosen by the Bolts in the second round, had been viewed by many as a potential first rounder had he stayed in school through his senior season.
Olshansky, 6-6, 305 pounds, is known for his incredible strength. He pushed up 41 reps on the 225 pound bench press, second at the combines. He ripped off 43 just weeks later at his Pro Day.
He has a blue collar work ethic and the only concern was a back issue that hampered him this year but he reports no problems.
Olshansky ended his junior year with 58 tackles, 15 behind the line and 6.5 sacks. He has played both tackle and end and is expected to move outside in the Chargers 3-4 defense.
