Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-MAC honors and tied for the conference lead with 14 sacks in 2017, making a team-high 20.5 tackles for loss and four forced fumbles along with 69 tackles. Named Second Team All-MAC and led Central Michigan with 13.5 tackles for loss and nine sacks while posting 69 tackles and two forced fumbles as a junior. Missed most of the 2015 season with a left ankle injury. Earned Third Team All-MAC honors and recorded 60 tackles (10 for loss), three sacks and three forced fumbles as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Intense, hard-working pass rusher with minimal upside. Displays tremendous quickness and good change of direction and easily bends off the edge to make his way up the field. Works his hands to protect himself and keeps coming.
Neg: 
Lacks size. Easily handled at the point of attack. One-speed defender with minimal burst.
Analysis: 
Ostman is a hard-charging lineman who plays with intensity and hostility. He lacks size, athleticism and upside for the next level but could make a roster if he learns to rush the passer standing over tackle.
