Supplemental's OT Gaither, DB Oliver

More news on July 12th supplemental draft players OT Jared Gaither of Maryland and DB Paul Oliver of Georgia. Oliver's Pro-Day today went so-so. He's not a burner. Gaither has size and appears to be the more attractive supplemental pick for NFL teams.

Supplemental hopeful Oliver has so-so Pro Day  
Paul Oliver - DB - CLG - Jun. 20 - 3:34 pm et  
Georgia CB Paul Oliver ran his forty in the 4.5-4.58 range at his Pro Day, according to Scout.com. His vertical was 33.5 inches.
Oliver has size to help overcome the lack of long speed, but these numbers aren't that impressive. It's possible he'll get a look from Cover 2 teams or even as a free safety. Oliver shut down Calvin Johnson in November, but probably won't go any higher than the third round next month. Jun. 20 - 3:34 pm et

Sources: Terps OT Gaither declared academically ineligible

An NFL scout, who was attending former Georgia cornerback Paul Oliver's workout in Athens, Ga., on Wednesday, said Gaither would be the most desirable player available if he enters the supplemental draft. Gaither didn't allow a sack in 11 games as a freshman at Maryland in 2005.

Gaither, who started nine of 13 games in 2006, has tremendous size and athleticism. But the 6-foot-9, 350-pound tackle has been in and out of Friedgen's dog house during his two-plus seasons at Maryland. He quickly fell into academic trouble at Maryland and was suspended by Friedgen for last season's opener against Division I-AA William & Mary.
