Oklahoma offensive lineman, Orlando Brown, had a historically horrible NFL Combine. At 6’8″ and 360-pounds, he certainly has the build to be a successful offensive lineman, but will those numbers leave a stain on his draft stock?
• 14 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press
• 5.85-second 40-yard dash
• 19½-inch vertical jump
• 6-foot-10 broad jump
Brown does not have much athletic ability, as shown by his Combine results, but he does manage to get the job done by using his size and strength to his advantage. He is a wall, of sorts.
You will not bull-rush your way through Brown but will have to try and get around him and get to the quarterback that way. In the NFL, those defensive linemen will find a way. Brown must gain some agility if he wants to be successful at the next level.
Brown’s father also played 11 seasons in the NFL. He spent multiple stints with both the Browns and then the Ravens.
I expect Orlando Brown to be drafted in the late-second or third round, but I hope the Browns pass on him because he reminds me of a Cam Erving, who was an absolute trainwreck for this team.
