2013 Community Projections: DE Shawn Oakman

New, 27 comments

The monster sophomore DE takes to the field this season for his first real action as a college player. Will he be the dominant force Baylor fans expect?

The system doesn't have a picture of Shawn Oakman, but you thought it might be him, right?

When you're 6'9" tall, weigh 275 pounds, and look like you were chiseled from the Earth by people who have long since departed for another plane, people begin to expect things from you. When your wingspan makes a condor look like a canary and you play a position where that's considered a plus, those expectations start to rise. And when your coach talks you up like Bennett has DE Shawn Oakman, that's when it starts to get out of control.

Still, despite all that, the PSU-turned-Baylor DE isn't starting for the Bears yet and will have to make good on limited chances (relative to a starter). He has no stats to his name yet, considering he redshirted and then transferred, so I have nothing to show you to help shape your projections. I'm sorry, you're flying blind.

TACKLES / TACKLES FOR LOSS / SACKS

Shawn Oakman beckons. Your projections, please.

Oh, and head on over to the Discussion Fanpost and throw it a "rec" so it will float to the top of the fanposts, if you don't mind.
