Mike Mayock on Shawn Oakman: ‘Boom or bust’

One player that has certainly had a polarizing draft stock is former Baylor defensive end Shawn Oakman. He has moved up and down draft boards since the start of the 2015 college football season and it looks like he could be in for a wild ride in the NFL.

NFL Draft expert Mike Mayock commented on Oakman and his potential in the league. He said that Oakman really only has two directions to go: to the top of the food chain or to the bottom of the totem pole.

Oakman was at one point considered to be the top player available in the Draft, but he has fallen all the way to a fourth-round pick after the Senior Bowl. It looks like he could still end up being a steal for any team looking for some depth on the defensive line.

During his career with the Bears, Oakman 128 tackles, 46.5 for loss, 17.5 sacks, with 11 coming during his sophomore year, and eight forced fumbles. Those numbers are pretty impressive, so a team could end up taking a much bigger chance on him.
