Jaguars draft San Jose State TE Josh Oliver at #69.

Recommended Posts

Good pick.

Obviously seeing Hakeem sitting there is tough to stomach as an ISU alum, but Oliver was in the next group of this strong TE class. Think he has some considerable upside and should be great with Foles.

Oliver and the signing of Conley completely altered what we can do down field/catch radius wise.

But I thought rookie TEs never did anything so why bother right?

Seriously though glad to get him there. Fills a big need, very athletic and a natural receiver

Probably a round earlier than i would've taken him, especially considering Steenberger and Knox were still available.  Oliver's got the sort of upside as a receiver to easily make that up though.  Not a big deal.

Have to figure he's going to basically just be used like a big receiver here, initially at least.  Probably gonna be a while before they give him much in the way of serious blocking responsibilities.  Obviously lose some versatility and disguise if he can't be trusted with much blocking...but we needed that sort of target for Foles, and his ability to really get downfield and make plays is good.
