Default Oliver to work out for scouts on Jun 20

From nfl.com via NFLN:

Quote:
Georgia cornerback Paul Oliver planned to return to school for his senior season, but academic troubles got in the way. Now Oliver will work out for NFL officials June 20 in Athens, Ga., in an effort to boost his stock for the July 12 supplemental draft.

The 6-foot, 208-pound Oliver is best known as the cornerback who, in the regular-season finale last year, limited former Georgia Tech wide receiver Calvin Johnson to two catches for 13 yards. Any performance like that is bound to get the attention of scouts, and now Oliver will try to command more.

If he runs the 40-yard dash in an impressive time, his value could go even higher. As it is, he already plays a position that teams constantly are looking to replenish and upgrade.

Even before, Oliver was considered a possible first-day selection, as high as the third round. Chances are, he will go in that range in July but could go higher based on his workout and a team's need. Any team that picks him will lose that corresponding selection in the 2008 NFL Draft.
Definitely interested in this workout. Half the teams in the league should be at least giving a hard look at this guy unless he totally bombs.

IMO it may take a first round pick to get this guy. The teams in the top 10 will want this guy with there second round picks so teams thats are below them will have to give up a first.

No way a teams spends a first round pick in the supplemental draft. Second or third rounder is more realistic. He's a great football player, but a little overrated imo. Its not that hard to stay eligible, but he couldnt do it, he had to have been lazy in the classroom and now he will pay for it.

First, being in college, its not that hard to stay eligible. Second, no team should use a first round pick in the supplemental draft. Third, my thoughts are if you have the possibility of being a first round draft pick and you need to work on the grades to help maintain that status, you should do that, if you dont have the committment to do that, what is your committment to football? He let his team down by failing out of school and cost himself millions. I understand once hes in the nfl he doesnt have to worry about grades and college, but if i was a GM i wouldnt touch him till the third in the supplemental draft. I know he had that great game against CJ and is a solid player but i dont think he should be rated the # 1 cb, like many people had him. I would have rated Cason, Lowry, Talib, and Jenkins higher.

I have only seen him play 2 or 3 times. The only time he stood out was against CJ
