Player Outlook

Not only does Josh Oliver offer long-term appeal, but the tight end has a glimmer of hope to produce as soon as 2019 for the Jaguars. At nearly 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds, Oliver was a reliable target at San Jose State, catching 56 passes as a senior for 709 yards with four scores. His big size meshed with startling speed for a dude as big as he is makes for an intriguing combination. He's unfinished as a blocker and needs to add some nuance in his route-running, but given the lack of competition at tight end in Jacksonville, he could find playing time as soon as this season. Until it's obvious he's the starter, Oliver should only get picked late in long-term formats and in Round 4 of rookie-only drafts.

Player News
  • The Jaguars selected Oliver in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 69th overall. Oliver flew under the radar at San Jose State's humble program, but at 6-foot-5, 249 pounds, he possesses clearly above-average athleticism for a tight end. He turned heads with a 4.63-second 40 at the combine, then demonstrated further linear explosiveness with a 34-inch vertical and 117-inch broad jump. It's difficult for rookie tight ends to earn big workloads, so Oliver isn't really on the redraft radar for mainstream leagues. However, it's worth monitoring him this summer, in the event he turns out to be another long-shot success story like Chris Herndon last year. The Jaguars don't have much at tight end otherwise.
