2016

2015

An undrafted free agent who didn't even receive a combine invite after his college career was over, Oliver got a chance to start last year for the Chargers after every other back they had on the roster got hurt and erupted for back-to-back 100-plus yard rushing games in Weeks 5 and 6. A 5-8 sparkplug whose legs never seem to stop churning, Oliver's lack of speed or burst caused scouts to dismiss him, and he's not going to run around or away from many defenders, but he can pick his way through the line of scrimmage using plus vision and balance, has solid receiving skills, and his low center of gravity and relentless motor allow him to bang through contact on a regular basis. He did seem to wear down towards the end of his rookie season, something an offseason of conditioning work can fix, but San Diego's selection of Melvin Gordon in the first round of the draft puts Oliver firmly back on the bench, where he'll compete with holdovers Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown for snaps.
