Chiefs Showing Interest In An Inside Linebacker

Last month was the ELITE Pro Football National Combine for players that have yet to sign with a team. One of the participants, inside linebacker David Olson, performed very well according to various scouts.

He considers the NFL "still a long shot" but hired an agent and has received interest from the Chiefs, Vikings and Cowboys, according to the Post Bulletin in Rochester, MN.

"Things went pretty good," the 25-year-old Olson said of the tryout camp. He was one of just three inside linebackers at the camp.

"I have no doubt I was the best linebacker out there in terms of 40 (yard dash time) and the drills," he said.

That would be a 4.63 forty yard dash time. He weighed in at 243 pounds so at first glance the NFL size is there.

He's currently at a construction job waiting on a NFL team to call. The Chiefs, with Jarrad Page and six rookies unsigned, have six spots available on the 80-man roster so some movement would have to happen if they were to sign him.

Good to know the Chiefs scouting never stops. They're also reportedly interested in Harvey Unga, a supplemental draft entrant.
