Pos: 
Outstanding pass-catching tight end who has been consistently productive. Fluidly releases off the snap, immediately gets to top speed and plays to his 40 time. Consistently extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame, displays both soft and strong hands and snatches the ball out of the air. On the same page as his quarterback, consistently finds the soft spot in the defense and finds ways to come free. Competes to come away with the reception, keeps the play in bounds and works to pick up yardage after the catch. Fundamentally sound as a blocker and gives effort.
Neg: 
Average strength as a blocker and occasionally overextends into opponents. Gets marginal movement as a run blocker.
Analysis: 
Oliver is a terrific pass-catching tight end who should only get better as a blocker as he physically matures and adds bulk to his frame. He projects well as a move tight end, and in many ways he plays the position like a big-bodied possession receiver.
