Orlando Brown

He will be the person tasked with protecting the top threat in the Big 12. Again, he’s coming ahead soon. For now, it’s time to learn more about Orlando Brown, one of the biggest men in the Big 12.

Brown is 6-foot-8, 345 pounds. A monster of a man, he has the strength to move rushers and block for the numerous playmakers the Sooners have this season.

Just a junior, Brown has professional scouts salivating at the thought of him protecting the players of a NFL team.

Last year against West Virginia, the Sooners earned a 56-28 win over the Mountaineers as OU scored 21 points in the first quarter, alone.

According to SI.com, Brown is the No. 32 player in the country. The website said, “Since redshirting as a freshman in 2014, Brown has started all 26 of Oklahoma’s games at left tackle. His mammoth frame makes him a nigh-immovable presence on the edge of the Sooners’ line, and Brown does a good job creating wide lanes for his running backs by shoving defenders out of position. His work up front will stabilize another potent attack in Norman this season.”

Brown will be a big part to the Sooners competing for another conference title. So will the play of the biggest threat in the Big 12.
