The freak: Houston DT Ed Oliver
Most college stars need three seasons to mature into NFL prospects. Oliver might have needed one. He was an unusual player coming into college – a five-star prospect who chose to stay home at Houston – and has so far matched or even exceeded expectations. Last season, he became the first sophomore to win the prestigious Outland Trophy and could be a fringe candidate for the Heisman as a junior. NFL teams can’t wait to draft Oliver, and he should be the main event at the 2019 combine.
