Prototypical size and speed at the cornerback position. Extremely long arms. Very disruptive in press coverage. Fluid and comfortable in the sprint, backpedal, or shuffle. Elite range and exceptional ability to recover due to his combination of speed and length. Good acceleration and awareness in zone or off-man coverage. Can easily reach around receivers to deflect passes. Fights to prevent receptions at the catch point. Plays the ball in the air and can come down with it. Matches up well with size.



Quicker receivers can give him issues in man-to-man coverage. Should be a better tackler at his size. Might struggle if asked to play in the slot. Overall technique could be improved.

Oliver literally has all-time great length at the cornerback position, which makes him an intimidating presence on his side of the field. He is already a fairly polished man-to-man cornerback, but Oliver also has the tools to be a lockdown option for teams that predominantly play zone coverage.
