The 11th overall pick in the NFL draft, however, has already spent most of the past two weeks getting familiar with his new running mate, Michael Thomas, in their shared home base of Southern California.Thomas welcomed the fellow former Ohio State receiver over FaceTime shortly after he was drafted -- and then invited Olave to come stay with him and work out."I couldn't turn that down," said Olave, who spent a week and half with Thomas before flying to New Orleans for this weekend's rookie minicamp.It wasn't the first time they had worked out together, though. And we feel like he's guy from a character standpoint, from a leadership standpoint, we can use," said new Saints coach Dennis Allen, who was asked if he has heard from any LSU fans in the area that are excited about the additions of Landry and Tyrann Mathieu."Well, yeah, my whole neighborhood I think has sent me a text in some form or fashion," Allen said.As for Olave, Allen said two days of rookie camp is a "small sample size." But so far the 6-foot-1, 189-pounder is "what we thought he would be.""A guy that is really fast, smooth in transition, good route runner," Allen said.
