Baylor's Shawn Oakman jumps 40 inches holding 70 lbs weights

Baylor defensive lineman Shawn Oakman has an already impressive social media resume thanks to his massive size (6-foot-9, 280 pounds) and ability to make highlight-reel plays. He appeared to add to it on Tuesday.

In a video posted by Bleacher Report, the mammoth defender showed off his athletic ability by box jumping 40 inches while holding 70 pounds (two 35-pound dumbbells) worth of weights. It is, to put it mildly, pretty impressive.

The awesome sound that accompanies the slow-motion video makes it that much better.

Still, neither of those NFLers did a jump with 70 pounds of weight hanging off to the side.

Oakman will enter the 2015 season as's No. 2 senior prospect in the country as the Bears look to capture their third consecutive Big 12 title.
