Trevor Olson

School: Northern Illinois
Position: T
Bio: Four-year starter at left tackle awarded all-conference honors the past two seasons.
Positive: Tough, durable college left tackle who is best in confined quarters. Smart, works well with teammates and keeps his head on a swivel. Patient in pass protection, shows good awareness and picks up stunts or blitzes thrown by opponent. Stays square, keeps his feet moving and extends his hands into defenders to keep opponents away.

School: Boise State
Position: T
Bio: Full-time starter the past three seasons after playing part time with the first team as a freshman. All-conference selection since his sophomore season and named to several All-American teams as a senior.
Positive: Durable college lineman with minimal upside for the next level. Keeps his head on a swivel, displays good blocking vision and works well with teammates. Sets with a wide base, keeps his feet moving and blocks with good lean. Jolts opponents at the point of attack, stays square and seals defenders from the action with good body positioning. Effective with his hands and works until the whistle blows. Plays smart football.
Negative: Marginal athlete who struggles in motion. Not a natural knee bender. Lacks quick and fluid footwork off the edge. Lunges into blocks or overextends, which causes him to lose balance.
Analysis: Potter was highly rated after tremendous sophomore season yet has since watched his game take a step back. The Boise State left tackle is likely to move inside to guard at the next level and will be limited in the types of schemes he can play in. If Potter gets his game back to where it was in 2009 he could eventually start for an NFL team.
