Orlando Brown, Junior is a huge man, just like his late father, Orlando "Zeus" Brown, who played in the NFL for 11 seasons. Brown's father passed away at the age of 40 from diabetic ketoacidosis, so now he plays for his memory -- though his father wished he wouldn't. The top 30 offensive tackle prospect redshirted his first year with the Sooners despite his size behind seniors Tyrus Thompson and Daryl Williams. Brown lived up to the hype in 2015 when given his chance, starting all 13 games at left tackle, earning Freshman All-American and honorable mention All-Big 12 accolades. He used his elite length, massive frame, and improving agility to start every game in his sophomore campaign, second-team Associated Press All-American and Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year honors. Brown was again among the best tackles in the country in 2017, receiving Outland Trophy finalist, first-team AP All-American, and All-Big 12 notice for protecting Baker Mayfield's blind side.



Massive frame combined with outstanding arm length make him a challenge to get around. Able to seal down blocks with his huge frame alone. Nasty finisher who is looking to intimidate and overwhelm the man across from him. Has pure power to get defenders turned out of the hole when his footwork is right. Linebackers looking to take on his second level blocks can be engulfed. Hands are heavy in pass protection and in run game. Kick-slides gain impressive ground in setting out to edge rushers. Consistent with punch timing. Can completely derail a pass rusher's game plan with early jabs into his frame. Uses maximum arm extension most of the time. Will not be bull rushed. Good recovery blocker thanks to length and strength. Doesn't always look pretty, but can ride rushers past the pocket. Keeps his feet moving and alive in pass protection. Comes from NFL bloodline.


Has leverage issues due to high center of gravity. Not a natural knee bender. Down blocks land way too high and carry very little drive on them due to lack of bend. Overshoots targets on second level and roller skate by. May need to play with more vertical sets to help him keep NFL edge benders from turning his corner. Needs to shoot his punch with more quickness and less wasted motion. Will open and lunge at times when rushers start to make their turns along the rush arc. Fails to clamp into defender's frame and sustain blocks through hand strength. Willingness to maul could lead to spike in holding penalties. Limited area of effectiveness as run blocker. Slow lateral movement off the snap.

Sources Tell Us

"He's really big and he's really long. In the NFL, big guys with long arms can play a long time so you don't have to be the most skilled or the most athletic. He would make me nervous to put out there at left tackle without any help." - Former NFL offensive line coach

Bottom Line

Tackle with rare size and length whose massive frame can work for him in pass protection and against him in the run game. Brown will be tough for some evaluators to back because his footwork isn't always pretty and his athletic ability is below average, but he typically gets guys blocked and he clearly understands how to use his size and length to his advantage. Brown's physical traits and nasty demeanor give him a chance to become a good starting tackle on either left or right side.
