Yikes...

 

 

 

 

Also, I always confuse him and Deforest Buckner, so when I read your thread title I was super confused...

Good thing we never drafted him under Rex. I remember that being a thing.

How big of boots do we need to kick some tires?

 

I'm pretty sure they only cut him cause they were worried if he fell on Kyler it would take exploratory surgery to get him back...

A lot of folks thought he'd be a great pro. Unfortunate he couldn't commit himself. Thank goodness we didn't draft him

Not trying to get any hate cats out of their litter boxes but this is the guy Oliver reminded me of. Top 3 lock, not so much and attitude questions. I’m not down on Oliver but I’m weary.

 

I’m calling him Little Oliver until he gets a solo sack.

Both guys were the premiere interior DL prospects for their respective class and they both managed to screw it up. I like McD’s approach with Oliver, I’m hoping it works.

 

Oliver is very much a boom or bust candidate much like the Ole Miss Spice Head.

His collegiate tape and last year left alot to he desired

Yeah, going into the draft Oliver >> Nkemdiche. I don't think anyone thought of Nkemdiche as a top 10 player.

Maybe some pundits who look at recruiting profile lmao

 

He always had the potential but his tape was lacking

 

Ed has the tape and pedigree

Going into his last season at Ole Miss he was touted as a top 3 pick and plenty talk of him going at 1. He was the top rated HS prospect. 

 

Many thought Oliver was a top 3 guy. Nkemdiche has more height than Oliver but I find both of these guys to be boom or bust head case type of players. Oliver has his chance to boom.

 

I said it back when Robert Nkemdiche was going through the draft process, the interviews are key for a coaching staff. From

what I have seen of Beane and McD, they have a much better understanding of what and who wins than recent Bills coaches.

Yes before he mailed it in.

 

Physically he is top notch, but you need more than that

Right. We don’t need to detail the questions about Oliver in/after his final season do we?

 

Are you disagreeing that Oliver is an all or nothing type of pick?

I can agree he displays a certain boom or bust capabilities

 

BUT the thing that keeps him apart form other prospects is he is already a tremendous run stuffer

 

He may never be a 10 sack guy but he will be stuffing weak side runs at the Line of scrimmage at the least

Bleh. I just see a smallish DT who is stuck in his own head. Watch the guy walk around flexing.

 

He is either going to be great or get steam rolled and humbled. I don’t see a guy like that just filling a role.

To be fair I am a hardcore fan over a scout and coach when it comes to the Bills

 

My objectivity and experience goes out the window when my fandom kicks in sometimes

 

But I still stand by he is a better run stuffer than pass rusher rn. He has always rushed the passer at a good level thanks to his athleticism

 

You need rush moves and counters to your moves in the NFL , which he doesn't have yet

With a lack of production in college and questions regarding his motivation, it was easy to see this coming. I'm glad we didn't draft him.

Well, if he is smart, he will take his one time in a career guaranteed salary for this year from the NFL because I doubt he will ever get anything close to what he was going to make this year again.
