Orlando Brown made it official on Wednesday when he signed his rookie contract. The third round pick, and former Oklahoma Sooners, inked a four-year deal with the same team that his father played for.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the deal with the Baltimore Ravens is worth $3.491 million for the four years.
Brown was a three-year starter at Oklahoma and made a total of 40 starts during that time. Last season he was a unanimous first-team All-American (AFCA, AP, FWAA, Sporting News, Walter Camp) and one of three finalists for the Outland Trophy.
In addition, he was named Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year, first-team All-Big 12 by the league’s coaches and the Associated Press after starting all 14 games at left tackle in 2017.
Thought by most to be a first-round talent, Brown saw his draft stock slip after a poor showing at the NFL combine. Still though, the Ravens got an All-Pro caliber player at a bargain price.
I would expect him to anchor that offensive line for the next decade.
