Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver came off the board at No. 9 tonight to the Buffalo Bills. He certainly seems very excited to move on to the next stage of his career.
Oliver was productive on the field at Houston, but he apparently didn’t enjoy himself there. During a post-draft press conference, Oliver was asked by reporters what he will miss about his school days.
His response was as blunt as a forearm shiver to the face.
“Nothing,” Oliver said.

While Oliver may not look back on his time at UH too fondly, he made an impact in his three seasons on the gridiron. A former five-star recruit, Oliver was a first-team All-American all three years.
He was also AAC Defensive Player of the Year and the Outland Trophy winner in 2017. Oliver finished his career with 192 tackles (53 for loss), 13.5 sacks and 11 passes defensed.
Now, he’s off to Buffalo to prove his ridiculous Pro Day wasn’t a fluke.
