Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: With a physique that makes scouts gush, Oakman certainly passes the eyeball test with his tall, chiseled frame, branch-like length and body thickness to overwhelm blockers at the point of attack.

Oakman is balanced and flexible for his body type, playing comfortable on his feet when asked to drop and cover flat responsibilities. He is heavy-handed with muscles on his muscles, using his long arms to jolt and drive blockers backwards.

WEAKNESSES: Oakman has steadily progressed the last few seasons with added reps, but he isn't yet the sum of his parts. His pad level will always be an issue due to his height and his pass rush arsenal is very rudimentary right now.

Oakman tends to slow and be a nonfactor once his initial moves stall, struggling to shorten his path to the pocket. He doesn't consistently generate power from his lower half or convert his quick first step to power.

IN OUR VIEW: A freakish specimen on the hoof, Oakman physically has the look of a future high draft pick, but his development as a senior in 2015 will ultimately determine whether he's a top pick or not.

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).

He emerged as a force in 2014, registering a whopping 19.5 tackles for loss to go with 11 sacks, three pass breakups, three passes defensed, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. Oakman considering making the leap to the NFL before deciding to return to Waco for his senior season.

09/04/2015 - Fourth-ranked Baylor will be without defensive end Shawn Oakman and safety Orion Stewart in its season opener Friday night at SMU. The two starters have been suspended after violating unspecified team rules. A school spokesman said Oakman and Stewart would both be back for the Bears' home opener Sept. 12 against Lamar. The school gave no other details. Both were All-Big 12 selections last season. The 6-foot-9, 275-pound Oakman had 19 1/2 tackles for loss and 11 sacks, while Stewart had 82 tackles and four interceptions. Already in the days leading up to the Bears' most anticipated season, the school also hired a Philadelphia law firm this week to do an independent investigation into the university's handling of sexual assault complaints, including one that led to the conviction against former transfer Sam Ukwuachu. - AP Sports
