THE MUSIC FROM 2001 PLAYS IN THE BACKGROUND
DAH – DAH
DAH – NAH!!!
I’m Back!!!!! You Earthlings were in for it. I had my planet destroyer blaster all targeted at your measly planet, ready to pull the trigger and then…
Then the Dolphins made a few changes and I got excited about the draft
So you live to fight another season I guess…
This season I have a bunch of new weapons like these Kurllian Daggers.
Swift as the wind but deadly!
Reminds me of Houston Defensive Tackle Ed Oliver
The Pros: Arguably Oliver has been the most dominant defensive player in College Football the last couple of years. He’s a disruptive defensive force who uses his agility to excel.
There will be quite a few Aaron Donald comparisons this offseason and although I don’t think there is a defensive tackle in that class this year, Ed Oliver is probably most deserving of that comparison. He’s a smaller quicker defensive tackle in the mold of Donald or if you want to go farther back John Randle.
Oliver fires off the ball with such explosiveness, he’s hard not to notice on the field. At Houston, a team not stacked with elite talent, Oliver constantly faced double and triple teams and was still able to hold his own.
Oliver had 13.5 sacks, 53 tackles for a loss and 192 total tackles in 3 years at Houston. He was their defense. In the pros, Oliver has the make up of the kind of defensive player is, a defense can build around.
The Cons: At 6-3, 292 pounds Oliver does not have the kind of size NFL scouts covet. But we’ve seen guys like Donald excel as a smaller interior defender. Don’t draft Oliver to be a space eater. He doesn’t do that. He aggressively penetrates.
Some people even think 290 is too heavy for him to utilize his quickness. The Houston Staff actually publicly stated that it as too heavy and wanted him around 275.
Oliver is probably not ideal in a 3-4 defense. He screams 3 technique in a 4-3.
The Alien Dust: Like I said – expect a lot of Aaron Donald comparisons. Its not just the size, it also that he didn’t go to a College Powerhouse. His combine will be interesting – chances are, his strength won’t be on par with Donald.
But Donald lives in the backfield. And his explosiveness off the ball is likely to cause havoc to other AFC East QBs if the Dolphins draft him.
If Oliver falls to 13, the Dolphins should run to the podium!
Oliver has the deadly agility of these daggers I use to brutalize lifeforms. Swift, sharp and deadly in the right circumstances. Oliver should shred the NFL.
