The Ravens have traded a conditional 2022 draft pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for tight end Josh Oliver, the team announced Thursday.
If Oliver makes the team, the Jaguars will receive the Ravens’ seventh-round pick next year.
Oliver, the No. 69 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft, has played just four games in two NFL seasons, with three catches on six targets for 15 yards. The former San Jose State standout was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a back injury in November of his rookie year and missed all of last year after breaking his foot in August.
The 6-foot-5, 249-pound Oliver ran the 40-yard dash in 4.63 seconds at the 2019 NFL scouting combine, with a vertical leap of 34.0 inches. Entering the draft, he was considered a developmental prospect with good ability as a receiver but room to grow as a blocker.
He’ll join a Ravens tight end room headed by Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle, who’s recovering from a season-ending knee injury but is expected to return by training camp. Jake Breeland, Eric Tomlinson and Eli Wolf are also expected to compete for a roster spot.
