Oliver fits perfectly into Sean McDermott’s defense, providing a disruptive force up front as they look to replace Kyle Williams, who retired following the 2018 season.

“Fast,” said Oliver at the NFL Combine. “Faster than most honestly, violent, high motor.”

He’s the only player in Houston football history to be named an All-American in three seasons.  Oliver also won the 2017 Outland Trophy as the best interior defensive lineman in college football.
