16. “Oliver won the Outland Trophy and was a finalist for the Nagurski Award as a sophomore, also garnering consensus All-American honors and winning the American Athletic Conference’s Defensive Player of the Year Award with 73 tackles, 16.5 for loss, 5.5 sacks, and three pass breakups despite facing constant double-teams.” — Defensive Tackle.

Once upon a time, many NFL teams passed on a guy named Aaron Donald, much to their detriment. As it turned out, even with the likes of Khalil Mack, Odell Beckham and Mike Evans, Donald was the best player in the 2014 NFL Draft. Which brings us to Ed Oliver, who should be a top 5 selection, except injuries and a coaching dispute likely drops him several notches. If everything levels out in the pro game, the Buffalo Bills will get a steal, if they’re able to grab Oliver in this spot.
