The St. Louis Rams, like most NFL teams, will see a bunch of undrafted rookies during organized team activities who are looking for their shot to make a roster.

Their newest acquisition will be easy to spot on the practice field.

The team signed undrafted tackle Terrell Brown of Mississippi earlier this week. Brown was listed in college at 6-foot-10 and 385 pounds.

When he showed up Thursday, Brown had put on a few more pounds.

"Actually, we weighed him in at 403," Rams coach Jeff Fisher said to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "We had him in for a rookie tryout and he had some issues we had to clear up from a physical standpoint. But we put that behind us. We worked him out on both sides of the ball and decided that his best position would be offensive tackle."

Brown played in two games on the Ole Miss offensive line last season and eight games in 2011 as a defensive tackle. You can see Brown in the video below absolutely annihilate a chair.
