Greg Olsen: Opportunity Knocks Staff

Update: Olsen is expected to be a bigger part of the Panthers' passing game now that Jeremy Shockey is no longer with the team, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Recommendation: Olsen and Shockey put up solid combined numbers last year (82 catches for 995 yards) and now the former doesn't have the competition around to take targets away. Olsen has shown the ability to be a solid pass catcher and if he can really get on the same page as Cam Newton, he could make a leap. The Panthers don't have great wide receivers outside of Steve Smith, so the opportunity to step up is certain there for Olsen.
