49ers' Isaiah Oliver: Expected to play nickelback in 2023
49ers defensive coordinator Steven Wilks said Friday that Oliver is expected to play nickelback in 2023, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Wilks added that he expects to use the defensive back occasionally as a blitzer out of the slot.
