Bottom Line

Oakman is a physical specimen that can that has an exceptional combination of length speed and power. He’s not going to overwhelm you with pass-rush moves but his length allows him to touch offensive lineman before they can touch him. That is a huge advantage that he uses to fend off blockers and go right by them on the way to the quarterback.

In the run game, Oakman’s quickness off the ball allows him to shoot gaps and cross offensive lineman’s faces with ease. That quickness off the ball at his size provides the speed-to-power ratio he needs to knock lineman backwards too. Whoever, picks him will have done right by their organization because on top of the athleticism he has, he’s productive ball player.
