Profile

Summary:Brown was a stalwart at left tackle for the Sooners over the past three seasons. He entered the lineup as a redshirt freshman and played 40 straight games while helping Oklahoma go 34-6 during that span. Brown, who has an NFL pedigree in his family, is usually one of the largest players on the field at 6-foot-8 and 345 pounds. He was projected to be a first-round pick and one of the top offensive tackles taken in the upcoming draft before a combine performance that was below expectations.

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com wrote Brown has a "massive frame combined with outstanding arm length make him a challenge to get around." Zierlein also said Brown brings an edge to the field as he is a "nasty finisher who is looking to intimidate and overwhelm the man across from him."

Stacking up: Brown wass listed as the second-best offensive tackle in this draft class by NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock before the combine. ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper, Jr., had Brown as his No. 3 player at that position.

Like father, like son: Brown's father, Orlando, played nine seasons at right tackle in the NFL for Cleveland and Baltimore and started 119 career games.
