2019 Fantasy Outlook
Oliver, who looks like a draft-day steal after the Bills snagged him ninth overall this past April, isn't a towering defensive line presence at just 6-foot-2, 287 pounds, but he's an exceptional athlete who was extremely productive in college. As a rookie, Oliver will look to win a starting defensive tackle job right away. Star Lotulelei is the plugger on the Buffalo line, while Oliver is expected to beat out Harrison and Jordan Phillips to earn the majority of the time as the other starter. Read Past Outlooks

Oliver signed his rookie contract Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Draft picks rarely hold out these days, but it's good to get any administrative headaches out of the way and the Bills did that with seven of their eight draft picks all in one day, nice and early in the process. Oliver can now get on with trying to win a starting defensive tackle job right away. Star Lotulelei is the plugger on the D-Line, while Oliver -- the No. 9 pick in the draft -- is expected to beat out Harrison and Jordan Phillips to earn the majority of the time as the other starter.
