Could Atlanta Falcons cornerback Isaiah Oliver play a big role on the team’s 2020 defense? Dukes & Bell talked about the role of the third year defensive back.

Carl said Oliver has to take a step up for the team to be successful this year.

“He’s got the most the most experience of any of the corners, and playing time since being drafted in 2018 in the second round.” Dukes said “I just think he’s a guy with the most experience, and he’s got to take a jump, he has to step up, in this third year for this team to go where they need to go.”

Dukes also talked about Raheem Morris’ comments about Oliver.

“Raheem Morris said that he feels like Isaiah Oliver is comfortable right now and he came into his own at the end of the season. If that’s true then he’s going to have a hell of a season and that’s what we’re going to need if the Falcons are going to go deep.”
