With St. Louis Rams rookies due to report on Sunday to kick off a few days of continued learning and conditioning sessions just prior to the veterans joining them later in the week, the organization has already made a move. The largest football player on any of the 32 NFL rosters, offensive tackle Terrell Brown, has been cut.

Upon signing with the Rams during OTAs, Brown’s size was the talk of the town – and the league.

“We worked him out on both sides of the ball, defensive line and offensive line, and we felt like his best position would be right tackle,” head coach Jeff Fisher said at the time. “(Offensive line coach) Paul Boudreau said he’d love to have him. He’s a defensive lineman that we’ve converted to offensive lineman.”

League sources confirmed Thursday that the 6-10, 403-pounder, who played his college football at Ole Miss, is no longer a Ram. While the reason for his release was not shared, this was my initial evaluation of his positional attributes and overall skill set:

Very lean mass for a man weighing 403 pounds, with great length (long arms). Height was an issue for the position of offensive tackle. Stiff in the hips and lacked knee bend and ankle flex; was a waist bender to chase defenders. Limited short-area quickness, heavy-footed and lacks explosive movement when changing direction. Lacks an aggressive attitude and the desire to compete in shorts and helmets consistently. Extreme learning curve ahead of him switching from defensive lineman to the offensive side of the ball, which is a true projection.

While this player would have looked great getting off the bus first, as we all know there is much more to making a 53-man roster in the NFL.
