Shawn Oakman : Defensive End – Baylor Bears

Projected round : 1

Oakman is a freak talent as an edge rusher and has produced 10.0 sacks this season. At  6’9″ and 280 Lbs he is lean as can be which translates to a very quick and explosive first step. The only downside to his frame is that the long legs give him a less loaded base to knock a strong tackle onto his heels. Take a look and watch him fire off the edge and swarm to the ball.
