6. Ed Oliver, DL, Houston
Oliver was almost unblockable as a true freshman in 2016. The Texas native recorded 22 tackles for a loss, five sacks and three forced fumbles last season. He also delivered in some of Houston’s biggest games. He posted two tackles for a loss against Oklahoma, three against Louisville and 3.5 in the Las Vegas Bowl against San Diego State.
