JLC: Orakpo, Sanchez Scenarios, Updates

Stole my suggestion earlier this week that Orakpo would fall to us at 13. Trading up to get Sanchez would be a big mistake. If we want him, let's take him at 13. Don't move up to get him. Some think the Rams may actually take Sanchez at 2, which would make all our lives easier.

Redskins Insider - Orakpo, Sanchez Scenarios, Updates

Orakpo, Sanchez Scenarios, Updates
I continue to hear that the Skins' primary focus is to move up to draft USC quarterback Mark Sanchez; however, if they do not and if Brian Orakpo is untaken at 13, he would be a frontrunner for them. (That is assuming Sanchez were off the board.) Moving up for Sanchez will likely require that the Redskins move to the third or fourth spot. Both Kansas City and Seattle are amenable to dealing down, according to sources. The New York Jets, who pick at 17, are the other team highly motivated to move up and get Sanchez.

Several sources have suggested the Redskins have begun to send out feelers on what it might take to get Seattle's pick, and the Seahawks, at this stage, would likely seek two first-round picks on the high end. That was a price the Redskins were willing to pay for Chad Johnson last year and Jay Cutler a few weeks back, although neither deal was completed.


If the market for those picks were to dry up and with not too many teams pushing to move into the top five, perhaps a first- and second-, or first- and third-round pick would get it done as the draft gets closer. I wouldn't expect any trade of this type to come down until 12-to-24 hours before the draft at the earliest. The Redskins could also peddle Jason Campbell in one of these trade scenarios, though K.C. and Seattle might not be interested. One thing that might work in the Skins' favor as well, several NFL sources pointed out, is that the bad blood between K.C.'s new boss, Scott Pioli, and the Jets might make it harder for those teams to get a deal done. Also, it's going to take more to move up from 17 than from 13.

As for Orakpo, he is set to leave Redskins Park in a few hours. He arrived here yesterday for his official visit, according to a league source (USC linebacker Brian Cushing also took an official visit here and to other teams this week, though I continue to believe that the Skins would rather not take a linebacker at 13).

By the weekend, Orakpo will have made official visits to Cleveland, Denver, Houston and the Skins, and also worked out for Cincy, according to a source. Green Bay also scouted him heavily at his pro day. The highest several sources thought he would go is to Cleveland with the fifth pick, though that seems a bit high to some.

The execs and agents I talk to expect a run on offensive players to continue, and maybe Green Bay will take him at No. 9. He might be better-suited to a 4-3 team, though, and they're implementing the 3-4. Denver at 12 is another serious option, with defensive coordinator Mike Nolan pursuing players like Orakpo in the past, but if Malcolm Jenkins or a tackle is on the board when they pick, the Broncos could easily go in that direction.

Re: JLC: Orakpo, Sanchez Scenarios, Updates

McShay and Kiper both indicated that the Seahawks are strongly considering Sanchez and #4 and it's not likely he's going to last past #8. Hopefully we don't have the ammo to get him.

Re: JLC: Orakpo, Sanchez Scenarios, Updates

I'm going to be completely disgusted if we would throw away more draft picks to get Sanchez...Havent we learned anything??? Danny Boy: WE CANNOT BUILD A SUPERBOWL TEAM THIS WAY!!! How come he doesnt get this yet? You cannot throw away draft picks and then over pay vets PERIOD Its not fantasy football......sorry at work and just didnt want to read this at the end of my day. We really need some OL help....or a starting OLB would be nice...........Jason can get it done.

Why do we insist on being retarded year after year?

Good question. I wish I knew the answer.

Think the Skins F.O. want me to get a new team to root for or they are putting up a real good smokescreen.

Someone, say like Alex Mack? I would trade down, pick Mack, get and additional draft pick and go for a LB with the second pick, then a DE. We'll see what the FO will do.
