ESPN Insider's Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl rank Baylor edge rusher Shawn Oakman as the No. 3 fastest-rising draft prospect.
We've been projecting this breakout for more than a year, when Oakman finally became eligible in Waco after getting booted out of Penn State in 2012. Muench and Weidl think Oakman will have to answer for his off-field transgressions during the interview process, but have no doubts about his ability to wow on the gridiron. "He's always had great upside and he's made strides this year," they wrote. "Listed at 6-9 and 280 pounds, he's stout against the run despite his high center of gravity, and he's flashed the ability to get off blocks in time to make plays at the line of scrimmage. He also has the length to post up offensive tackles and walk them back to the quarterback, though we'd like to see him do a better job of getting those long arms in passing lanes." Sep 30 - 10:24 PM
