Orlando Lamar Pace (born November 4, 1975) is an American football offensive tackle who is currently a free agent. He was drafted by the St. Louis Rams first overall in the 1997 NFL Draft. He played college football at Ohio State. Pace has started all 16 games eight times (1998 2001, 2003 05) and blocked for three straight NFL MVPs (Kurt Warner; 1999, 2001 and Marshall Faulk; 2000). He was the cornerstone of a Rams offensive line that threw for more gross yards than any other team during his 12 years in St. Louis (50,770 in 12 seasons), finished second in completion percentage (61.8 percent) and fifth in TD passes (289) over that time. The Rams offenses threw for more than 3,000 yards in all 12 of his NFL seasons, seven quarterbacks eclipsed the 3,000-yard mark in a season, including three times surpassing the 4,000-yard mark, under his protection and also blocked for seven 1,000-yard rushers. Pace has started 154 consecutive games. Pace was a first overall pick in 1997 NFL Draft and was the first offensive lineman chosen first overall since 1968.

A five-time All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowl selection, Pace earned a Super Bowl ring with the Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV. He has also played for the Chicago Bears.
