What are the Jaguars getting in Josh Oliver?

I’ll be doing comprehensive scouting reports on each of the Jacksonville Jaguars draft selections from now up until OTAs.

Last week, I spotlighted Kentucky defensive end and linebacker Josh Allen and Florida offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor.

In this installment, I break down rookie tight end Josh Oliver.

Background and character

A native of Templeton, California, Oliver was an all-state tight end, defensive end, and linebacker at Paso Robles High School under coach Rich Shimke. In addition to averaging over 18 yards per catch, Oliver was also named the Pac-5 League Defensive Player of the Year scoring twice on interceptions.
