Orlando Brown Jr. of Oklahoma had historically bad NFL mix workout


USA TODAY Sports’ Lindsay H. Jones and Mike Jones tell us what they listened from a quarterback prospects during a NFL combine.

Oklahoma’s Orlando Brown Jr., a projected first-round preference in a arriving NFL draft, had a historically bad scouting mix performance.

Here’s a demeanour during a central mix numbers posted by a 6-foot-8, 360-pound descent tackle during Lucas Oil Stadium:

• 14 reps of 225 pounds on a dais press
• 5.85-second 40-yard dash
• 19½-inch straight jump
• 6-foot-10 extended jump

Those numbers are unequivocally bad.

Historically, descent tackles post a tad some-more than 25 reps in a dais press, run a 40-yard lurch in about 5.24 seconds and normal 28.4 inches in a straight burst and some-more than 8½ feet in a extended jump. Brown’s dais press sum is a second-worst among descent tackles during a mix given 2000, per Pro Football Reference. Marcel Jones — a seventh-round preference of a New Orleans Saints in 2012 — had 13 reps. Jones never seemed in an NFL game.

Brown was projected to go No. 12 altogether to a Cincinnati Bengals in USA TODAY Sports’ latest ridicule draft and was a top-rated descent tackle in a 2018 breeze class, according to Draft Wire.

It’s stable to contend that Brown’s breeze batch is trending downward.

Granted, these observations are what is cultivated around central mix information and not what transpired when member from NFL teams met with Brown during his stay in Indianapolis. That aspect is unknown.

Brown has a on-field credentials. He was a unanimous All-American preference in 2017 and a two-time first-team All-Big 12 pick. He has a pedigree, as he is the son of Orlando “Zeus” Brown, who played 9 seasons as an descent linemen in a NFL for a Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.

Baker Mayfield came to a invulnerability of Brown, who stable a Heisman Trophy winner’s blind side in college.

Let’s wish nobody operative out Saturday — when quarterbacks, far-reaching receivers and parsimonious ends take a field — practice a mix utterly like a one Brown endured.

Brown, meanwhile, gets another possibility to redeem himself when Oklahoma hosts the pro day on Mar 14.
