Potential First-Round Pick Orlando Brown's 40 Time "Slowest" Top Analyst Can Ever Remember

Orlando Brown runs 40-yard dash.

Orlando Brown came to the NFL Combine projected as a first-round pick by many. That's probably changed.

Thursday, former Oklahoma offensive tackle Orlando Brown put up a disappointing 14 reps in the bench press - good for the worst in his position group. Friday, his NFL Combine actually got worse.

Brown ran a 5.85 40-yard-dash - one of the slowest runs in history. NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller is going as far as to say that it's slowest run that he can ever remember seeing.

Here's the run - Brown is slow out the gate and never really hits his full stride. It's another disappointing score for the former Sooner.

So where does it actually rank among the worst? According to the NFL's official research, it's the fifth-slowest of all-time. Regis Crawford, Isaiah Thompson, Palauni Ma Sun and Gus Felder are the only players who did worse.

According to the NFL, none of those four players were drafted or ever started a contest in the league.

Speed isn't super-important for offensive linemen - but when combined with his poor bench press performance, he could be in trouble here.
