    We'll call this iteration of Orlando Brown by the name "Jupiter" instead of "Zeus". Or maybe since his dad is was blinded in one eye by a referee, we can call junior "Thor"? Nah, that doesn't work because "Zeus" never stopped being "Zeus" even if a referee did blind him with a flag.

    Hercules WAS the son of Zeus. Just sayin...

    Either way, he is a great prospect.

    The plus with him is that because of his size, strength, hand, and feet, he has the ability to make ANYONE look poor. Whether it's an Ed Oliver, Jaylen Holmes, Tyquan Lewis, Sam Hubbard, Tyus Bowser, Reggie Walker, Carl Lawson, etc. There's just not anyone that isn't in his wheelhouse.

    The negative with him is that there's the rule of big men, they don't move too fast. His versatility is low as far as the kinds of blocks you can get him to make in the offense. Right now he's more Bryant McKinnie than Jonathan Ogden. Tyus Bowser did beat him to the inside for a sack-strip, and that's something you have to look for with such a big man as it's the best way to beat them and get them in a bad spot.

    But his energy level at the end of the year against Ohio State was better than earlier in the year and so you just have to remember this is a guy that's still developing physically.

    I believe his upside is essentially Phil Loadholt if he continues to develop as a run blocker. He can get there.
