Bio: 
First-year starter who earned First Team All-Pac-12 honors and led Colorado with 13 pass breakups while adding 26 tackles and two interceptions as a junior. Made 34 tackles with one interception, one forced fumble and seven PBUs in 2016. Posted 22 tackles and six pass breakups as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Nice-sized cover corner with a developing game. Physical, competes to break up throws and beats down receivers to defend the pass. Engages wideouts at the line of scrimmage, mixes it up throughout the route and works to get his head back around to track the pass. Displays a burst of closing and recovery speed, defeats blocks and works to get up the field to make plays against screen passes and running plays.
Neg: 
Slow out of his transition. Not a smooth or fluid cornerback. Does not show great deep speed. Slow to find the pass downfield. Must improve his backpedal.
Analysis: 
Oliver possesses elite computer numbers and comes with tremendous upside but will need a good amount of time and proper coaching before he’ll be ready to start at the next level.
