Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver was arrested Saturday night for unlawfully carrying a weapon an for DWI charges.

What It Means:

Oliver will likely be facing a suspension from the league for the 2020 season. A first round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Oliver saw significant snaps in his first season with the Bills and figures to feature prominently on their defense in his sophomore season.

Oliver earned decent grades from PFF in his rookie season, and showed off his elite athleticism on his five tackles for a loss, which tied for the lead among defensive tackles in the 2019 draft class. He has some maturing to do if he wants to build on his solid rookie season, but at just 22 years old he has plenty of time to do so. numberFire projects the Bills to have the eleventh-strongest defense in the league in 2020.
