But Donald began his career as a backup with the Panthers. In Oliver’s freshman year at Houston, he beat out an eventual NFL player for a starting spot and had seven tackles with two sacks against No. 3 Oklahoma in the season-opener. As a true freshman, he showed an uncanny combination of strength (he’s all but unblockable by any one person), speed (he can chase a running back to the sideline 15 yards down the field) and football savvy (he is incredibly quick off the snap and has a sharp understanding of opposing offenses).

But for a player to come in as a rookie and dominate in the trenches? That list seems to begin and end with Oliver.
