“Ed’s playing really well, and if people want to just look at sack numbers, he doesn’t have those,” General Manager Brandon Beane said in his assessment of Oliver’s play last year. “But he impacts the game, not only the pass game, but the run game, and he’s growing, he’s learning. But at the end of the day, the sacks will come, I think, as he continues to learn the game and learn how people are playing him and blocking him. Ed faces a lot of doubles, too, so it’s not the easiest road for him. But I thought he definitely took a step up from Year One to Year Two. He might have started slow, this year but I thought three-quarters of the year he played really well and helped our defense.”
