Shawn Oakman is now ‘undraftable,’ according to exec


Former Baylor star pass-rusher Shawn Oakman entered the 2015 season with potential to be a first-round draft pick, but an NFC executive now thinks he is “undraftable,” according to NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein.

Oakman was slipping down draft boards to begin with after a subpar 2015 season and unimpressive showing at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis earlier this year, but the straw that broke the donkey’s back occurred earlier this month. Oakman was arrested on a sexual assault charge, something that could seriously turn off NFL teams even more.

And the worst is that what the executive said is spot on. Blessed with great size at 6-foot-8, 287 pounds, Oakman had all the potential in the world to be a phenomenal edge rusher in the NFL, especially given how he posted 52 tackles (19.5 for a loss) and 11 sacks to go with four forced fumbles in 2014.

But the reality of the matter is that violence against women is no joke and though Shawn Oakman is innocent until proven guilty, no NFL team will want to run the risk of the negative PR drafting the former Bear will draw.

  1. I am 100% against violence against women and usually have a tendency to lean toward being guilty. However, in this particular case I would look hard at this being a setup. I don’t know if it is another hit against Baylor that she thinks she will profit from or she knows 1 of the girls previously involved or that she is making a stand based in principle. Oakman has a previous incident while @ Penn St. So he’s an easy mark to set up & although his performance has declined in the last 2 years, his name is well known in addition to being physically big & strong. You do have to ? A girl that willingly goes home w/a guy she just met & then follows him into his bedroom. What was she thinking?? We’ve not heard that she was drunk or high, and it’s not been said that Oakman physical dragged her against her will into the bedroom. He willingly said it was consensual. I may be entirely wrong but I do think this case requires further investigation.
