Baylor Bears senior standouts and NFL prospects Spencer Drango and Shawn Oakman have accepted invitations to the 2016 Senior Bowl, the school announced Tuesday.
Drango, the Bears’ left tackle who is projected as a first- or second-round selection, and Oakman, a star defensive end, will join Baylor wide receiver Jay Lee and deep snapper Jimmy Landes as participants in the annual all-star game in Mobile, Ala., on Jan. 30.
A two-time All-American (consensus in 2014, unanimous in 2015), fifth-year senior offensive tackle Drango was named the Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year and a unanimous All-Big 12 first-team selection for a second-straight year. The Outland Trophy finalist led all Baylor blockers with a 90.3 percent coaches grade and 48 knockdowns as a starter in all 12 games, according to the school.
Oakman, a two-time All-Big 12 selection, recorded 43 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. He ranks first on Baylor’s all-time sacks list (17.5) and second on the school’s all-time tackles-for-loss list (46.0).
