RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Igor Olshansky.
Starting DE fills a run-stuffing role in the Cowboys' 3-4 defense.
Olshansky joins the Cowboys from San Diego and will plug up the middle of their run defense, but won't provide much IDP value.
Olshansky will again man the right side of the Chargers' defensive line this season. In 2007, he racked up 49 tackles, forced three fumbles, and garnered a reputation as a stout run stopper.
Olshansky is one of the strongest players on the team and is primed for a big season as the starting right end. A knee injury that was suffered during the first game of the season caused him to miss three games entirely and hampered him all year long, but he still managed to post 33 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
Olshansky is one of the bright young stars on the Chargers defense and is given a lot of credit for their stout run defense. He recorded 29 total tackles and three sacks as a starting defensive end in 2005.
Considered by many to be a bit of a project, the Ukrainian born Olshansky surprised a lot of people by starting every game for the Chargers in 2004. He managed a modest 39 tackles and only one sack, but the muscle-bound freak of nature is the favorite to start at right defensive end for the second year in a row.
Olshansky is an incredible physical specimen with a rare combination of strength and agility, but he is still a work in progress on the field. Since coming from the Ukraine, he has only played American football for six years.
