Paul Oliver, CB, Georgia Oliver is an ideal-sized defender who combines terrific man coverage and ball skills. He was tempted to declare early, but his decision to return for a senior campaign should pay off with him being the top-rated senior cornerback. He has the ability to turn and run with most receivers, and his long arms and height (6 feet) keep taller receivers from being able to push him around or out-jump him.

uhhhh, shouldn't a sports writer know about Olivers situation....????

I believe it was written before Olivers entering of the Supp Draft

It was written today, and Oliver was ruled academically ineligible to play several weeks ago thus eliminating him from the "class of 08". Unless Oliver decides to skip the supplemental draft, sit on his ass for a year, watch his stock plummet, and join next years draft, which I highly doubt.

The article is a month old and was written by a respected writer who does know what he is talking about.

I've talked to him and Murph knows his ****.

As for the article, read "Date Posted: May 7th, 2007", that was just 7-8 days past the Draft.

Maybe there's a month delay between the US and Canada for Yahoo Articles?
