Chiefs Bring In Charlie Weis' Former Notre Dame Center For A Visit

The Kansas City Chiefs have used one of their 30 pre-draft visits with a familiar center. According to the Denver Post (via Arrowheadlines), Eric Olson made the trip to Kansas City for a visit with the Chiefs brass.

Olsen also played in Charlie Weis' offense with the Irish, which means he could move fairly smoothly into McDaniels' offense. Olsen is a former prep lacrosse player whose footwork shows the ensuing benefits.

Olsen is another player who was not a center when he started college. Weis made him one before Olsen's junior year. Weis, now the offensive coordinator of the Chiefs, has already had Olsen in for a visit to Kansas City.

Olson is a 6'4", 301 pound center from Notre Dame.

I like the athleticism that he comes with because the Chiefs have been looking to get smaller and more athletic on the offensive line.

Right now, the Chiefs have Casey Wiegmann and Rudy Niswanger at center. If Olson is eventually drafted, I suspect one of those guys wouldn't make the team out of training camp.

Olson is projected to go in the mid-rounds (4th-5th).

The Chiefs have also worked out Florida C Maurkice Pouncey.
