What are your thoughts on Ed Oliver?

Overall, I’m a little disappointed with what we’ve seen from Ed Oliver.   Last year, some had theorized that his lack of production was the result of not having a true 1TDT to take on blockers.   Well Star is back and is having his best season with the Bills, yet Oliver still hasn’t made much more of an impact.  
 

He hasn’t been bad necessarily and can make an occasional splash play.  But he also seems to be a non-factor for long stretches of game and has provided little in terms of a pass rush.  It seems to me that he doesn’t win his matchup enough.  The word on Oliver is that you can take him out of a play completely with a double team.  
 

At this point, if I’m Brandon Beane, I definitely wouldn’t  pick up his option this off-season, unless Ed takes his game to another level this year.   I feel that you can match Oliver’s production with a younger player or a veteran that will sign for a much cheaper deal than what it would take to keep Oliver in town.  

Would you pick up Oliver’s option after this season?

I’d probably let him walk when the time comes. 
 

My ideal draft would be Jordan Davis late 1st and the BPA IOL in the 2nd.  
 

Starting to lean towards extending Edmunds so Oliver is odd man out on this defense.

Yea, draft star DTs from Alabama. Like Marcell Dareus 

 

OK, point taken, they're not all sure things, but I'm just saying, expectations for Oliver may have been overhyped by his play against teams like Rice and Tulsa. Oh, and I could name many Alabama DTs that thrived in the NFL.

I say no to picking up his opinion,unless he really gets going and I just don’t see it. It’s a shame too we really need help on Dline 

Which is weird because they’ve probably invested more than any other team in the league to the defensive line….

Has he flashed enough to earn a second contract?  

 

Loaded question, second contract for his value or for top 5? For top 5, simply no. 

 

He is a good player just not a star, as long as he agrees to pay that correlates with that I see no problem.

That’s the question we’ll be asking next season.  It depends what that next contract will be.  I don’t see anyone paying him over 12M aav.  If that.  
 

i still need to see more.
