  • Oklahoma Sooner T Orlando Brown has performed as well as any in this strong offensive tackle group as he is one of three tackles to start the 2017 college football season as a PFF Day 1 projection.
  • In 2016, Brown’s played earned him the seventh highest grade of returning draft-eligible offensive tackles at 86.8.
  • Brown has been elite in pass protection as his pass block efficiency of 98.9 ranks No. 5 among returning draft-eligible offensive tackles. Brown completely shut out opposing pass-rushers eight times in 2016 not allowing a single pressure in those games. Brown gave up more than one pressure in just one game.
  • In 2016, Brown was balanced in pass protection and beating him inside was just as difficult as beating him outside. He ranked No. 12 in the class at preventing outside pressure and No. 13 at avoiding inside pressure.
  • This fall, Brown will look to be more consistent in his run-blocking. A year ago, he ranked just No. 40 in the draft class at avoiding negatively-graded run blocks.
