Strengths Weaknesses

While leverage will always be an issue due to his height, he plays much lighter than he looks with burst off the ball to rush the pocket and the coordination to drop and play comfortably on his feet in space. According to Briles, Oakman has a "chance to be dominant" and if he takes the next step in his development in 2014, he has legitimate talent to be considered an early first round pick, projecting best as a five-technique in a 3-4 scheme.

--Dane Brugler (6/1/14)

Player Overview

A freakish specimen on the hoof, Oakman is just scratching the surface of who he can be as a football player. He started his collegiate career at Penn State, but several off-field issues and poor academics led to his dismissal by then head coach Bill O'Brien.

Tabbed as angry and troubled, but not a bad kid, Oakman transferred to Baylor, sitting out the 2012 season, and played a part-time role in 2013, finishing among the Big 12 leaders in tackles for loss (12.5).
