Following his junior season, Oliver verbally entered the 2019 NFL Draft and was the number-one overall player in the class up until this season. Oliver will be on the Buffalo Bills’ radar come draft night. Oliver is a special athlete at 6’2” and 290 lbs. His quickness off the ball is rare and is a big part of why he was so productive in college. Oliver isn't going to play at 300-something lbs and that is a concern for some while others believe that is part of the reason for his greatness. Either way, whoever lands Oliver should be excited for what he has to offer. Joe Marino of The Draft Network and Lace Zierlein of NFL.com have this to say about Oliver:Joe Marino OverviewLance Zierlein OverviewIn three years as a starter before missing four games in 2018 with a knee injury Devin Singletary Jersey Boys , Oliver’s production was off the charts. In 32 total games over that time, Oliver recorded 192 total tackles including 53 tackles for loss and 13.5 sacks. With Star Lotulelei manning the 1-technique for the Bills, the 3-technique for the Bills is currently Harrison Phillips. Phillips is a solid player but presents a fraction of the ability and upside of Oliver. Oliver’s ability to rush the passer from the interior is crucial to what NFL teams need to possess. Depending how the draft falls, the Bills could be set up in the sweet spot for Oliver at ninth overall. The Bills would fill and need and likely get the best player available on the board. Buffalo Bills defensive leader and 13-year veteran Kyle Williams is playing in his final NFL game today at hoe against the Miami Dolphins. That’s not the only thing he’s playing for.ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Williams will earn a $150 Youth LeSean McCoy Jerseys ,000 bonus if he collects his sixth sack of the season against Miami on Sunday. Williams has only surpassed 5.5 sacks in his career once; he tallied 10.5 in 2013 (otherwise known as The Year of Mike Pettine).Williams stands at 48.5 career sacks right now, for an average of one sack in 26.6% of his games. He’s recorded at least one full sack in 34 career games.Williams hasn’t notched a full or partial sack against Miami since 2014, when he took down Ryan Tannehill in a Bills win. The previous year, he recorded two sacks in a blowout win. Those are the only two games he has a full sack against the Dolphins.No word yet on if he has any bonuses for scoring a rushing touchdown like he did last year.
