“He has to go to work every day to get better, but I hope he plays football for us this year.”
Faalele’s impressive size and skill have seen him compare to former Ravens star Orlando Brown Jr., a three-time Pro Bowl selection.
“It’s a normal comparison, isn’t it? They’re both big, big people,” said Joe Hortiz, director of the Ravens staff team.

“Orlando will be a little more aggressive, as you may remember. But yes, that’s a normal comparison between the two.”
This is a comparison that Falele sees himself.
“I feel like a comparison of sizes,” he said.
“One day, I want to play like him. His footballing intelligence is really good, and he uses his strength to his advantage. I think I’m in good shape. “
