Joe B: Ed Oliver looking the part

Recommended Posts

4) Ed Oliver looking the part
- During last week's open practice, first-round pick and defensive tackle Ed Oliver wore a non-contact jersey to signal that he's a limited participant, and restricting him from team drills. Oliver returned as a full participant in this practice and showed off that rare movement ability that he has for the defensive tackle position. It started with positional drills, when Oliver was on his knees and hitting the sled for the drill. He extended his arms and snapped the sled up in the air, all the while with his body having the flexibility and quickness to bring his chest down to the ground and then back up with effortless fluidity for the next rep. In team drills, his speed to get through the gaps of the patchwork interior line stood out just as it did in the first week of OTAs. He even made the entire offense run a penalty lap -- coaches included -- because he quickly took advantage of Wyatt Teller's flinch to bring on a false start penalty. That drew the ire of Brian Daboll mid-lap, and it was clear the offensive coordinator wasn't happy. However, if these spring workouts are any indication, it will be a treat to watch him during one-on-ones this summer at training camp. And as he continues to impress, it feels like only a matter of time until he moves ahead of Jordan Phillips on the depth chart.

I can definitely see him making opposing teams OL get flagged for false start quite often with how quick he is. Looking forward to seeing him in preseason.

I’m flinching just thinking of lining up across from him!

Just a coincidence that all the OL have some mysterious “injuries” popping up so they don’t have to practice .. 🤨

The man hits the sled well. Good. Let's not measure him for a gold jacket just yet.

Slow down the hype train.

Why do people like this make up "Hype trains" 

He looked good in practice not one person here has done what you are crying about.

I think the fact that the first three reactions to your post were sadness, confusion, and skepticism should suggest you reevaluate your outlook.

What exactly is the hype?

 

That he is a promising draft pick in a DT talented draft?

Lot of injuries at WR...

 

"During team drills, here was the rotation as I tracked it:

1: John Brown, Andre Roberts, Isaiah McKenzie (slot), Victor Bolden, Jr. (first-sub), Duke Williams (first-sub), Ray-Ray McCloud (slot, first-sub)

2: Victor Bolden, Jr., Duke Williams, Ray-Ray McCloud (slot), Da'Mari Scott (first-sub), Cam Phillips (first-sub), Isaiah McKenzie (slot, first-sub), David Sills V (subbed in when no third-team reps given), Nick Easley (slot, subbed in when no third-team reps given)

3: David Sills V, Cam Phillips, Nick Easley (slot), Isaiah McKenzie (subbed in as boundary receiver)"

 

but only a 3rd-stringer. :(

Player does well in practice, dont crown em yet.

 

Player does poorly in practice, and hes a bust!

 

I thoroughly enjoy those who boil it down so black and white.

Sadly, the dog in that avatar probably has more football smarts...

Not a big deal.   After all, Oliver is still second string (for maybe one more weak, anyway)....

Glad to see they're giving McKenzie so many reps. D. Williams, too. Can't wait for the pads to come on, though.

I still remember how fast and twitchy he was at his pro day. He literally came face to face with McDermott. You don't coach that stuff.

I can see him having an immediate impact sorta like Tre White , where we see very early on that this kid can play at a high level. Him and Hughes could be the quickest DE/DT combination in the game

They could require help on that side. NOW, if someone can step up on the other side, we could have something dangerous!
