You probably have never heard of Ed Oliver, who just happens to be the best all-around athlete in college football.
If I had a Heisman vote, it would go to University of Houston defensive tackle. Oliver (6-3, 290) had a career-high 14 tackles vs. Navy Saturday. In his first two UH seasons, Oliver has 134 tackles, including 10.5 sacks, 36 tackles for loss, nine passes defensed and four forced fumbles.
These are outstanding numbers for any defensive player, but they are truly remarkable numbers for an interior defensive lineman, especially since Oliver is constantly double-teamed and has a played a good portion of this season with a knee injury.
It's time the Heisman voters to seriously consider defensive players, like Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick or Washington State defensive lineman Hercules Maata'afa.
There are other worthy candidate on defense, but no one comes close to the extraordinary skills and work ethic of Oliver.
