ESPN's Steve Muench wrote that Baylor redshirt junior edge rusher Shawn Oakman "needs to improve his game before I'm willing to label him a first-rounder."
Muench believes Oakman's height can work against him, as the defensive end isn't able to sink and bend around the edge as effectively as players similarly as athletic. The analyst also believes Oakman could improve in run defense and play consistently harder. "Oakman has first-round natural ability, and it will not surprise me if he goes in the first round when he enters the draft -- whether that's in 2015 or 2016," Muench wrote. "Yet I gave him a second-round grade at this point because his motor is inconsistent, it's too early to tell whether or not teams are comfortable that his off-the-field mistakes are behind him and he's a one-year starter with technique issues." Muench compares Oakman to former second-round picks Calais Campbell and Margus Hunt. Oct 26 - 8:46 PM
