Bruce Feldman’s 2018 college football Freaks List - Ed Oliver #2


(Patrick) #1

2. Ed Oliver, Houston, DT
Quite possibly the best player in the country comes from the American Athletic Conference. Oliver is relentless, notching 39.5 TFLs in 25 career games with the Cougars. No D-lineman plays harder, and in addition to that world-class motor, Oliver has a ton of high-octane horsepower. At 6-3, 290, the 20-year-old vertical jumps 36 inches (3.5 inches better than any defensive tackle at this year’s NFL combine) and broad jumps 10-1. He power cleans 385, squats 650 and benches 405. His quickness is that of a man 80 pounds lighter, as evidenced by this video.
