Draft Scout *Isaiah Oliver News

12/08/17 - 2017 ALL-PAC-12 FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DB Isaiah Oliver, Jr., Colorado,...Oliver led the conference in passes defended (breakups plus interceptions) and tied for seventh in the FBS with 1.50 per game. He played in 10 contests, missing two due to injury, and despite that fact his 13 total pass breakups ranked in a tie for second in the league and tied for 12th nationally. Oliver also intercepted two passes on the season. Last Friday, Oliver declared his intentions to leave school early and enter 2018 NFL Draft. Thus, he finishes his career tied for 10th in Colorado history for the most pass breakups with 30 in his three seasons in Boulder. - Colorado Football
12/06/17 - Colorado junior Isaiah Oliver, considered to be one of the top cornerbacks in the nation this year, announced Friday that he will forego his senior season with the Buffs and make himself eligible for the 2018 NFL Draft. "I've been going back and forth with it over the last few weeks," Oliver said. "A lot went into the decision, but after having talks with my family, my dad and everybody, we felt like it was the best time after the season I had. We weren't necessarily against coming back for another year — I loved playing for Colorado and I wouldn't have minded another year, as well as another year of track — but we felt like where I am physically and mentally as a player, it's time to take the next step. We're really excited about it and looking forward to the next challenge."
Oliver's father, Muhammad Oliver, was a standout cornerback at Oregon and had a five-year NFL career. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Oliver played in 10 games this season after missing two late in the year with a leg injury. He finished with two interceptions, 13 pass breakups, five third-down stops, four touchdown saves and 27 tackles (22 solo). Opposing quarterbacks made it a point to avoid him whenever possible and he was seldom targeted over the last half of the season. For his career, Oliver finished with 71 tackles, three interceptions and 32 pass break-ups. He also returned punts for Colorado, and had a 68-yard return for a touchdown in 2016 against UCLA. - Colorado Football
