Auto Update: On

The Jets-Ed Oliver buzz continues to get louder. Would GM Mike Maccagnan really take an undersized nose tackle with the third pick in the draft? Like a lot of GMs, Maccagnan puts an emphasis on traits, which would make Oliver an unconventional pick because of his size (6–1 7/8, 287) and short arms (fifth percentile among DLM at the combine). But Oliver has some special qualities (rare explosiveness), so maybe the Jets think he can be the next Aaron Donald. It's hard to believe he'd pick Oliver over DT Quinnen Williams, who checks every box, but one personnel man told me Maccagnan really likes Oliver.
