Player Bio

At a glance

Drafted: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 4 overall. 
Recruited from: Mooroopna (Vic)/Bendigo U18/Murray U18

Oliver’s stellar second season was rewarded with a maiden best and fairest award. Was adjudged the AFL Coaches Association’s best young player of the year, finishing seventh overall behind Richmond’s Dustin Martin. The on-baller was ranked No. 1 in the AFL for handballs, second for contested possessions, third for clearances, fourth for tackles and fifth for disposals and was unlucky not to make the All-Australian squad of 40. Consistently showed he belongs in the elite category of midfielders in the AFL.
