Also, wasn't Orakpo hurt a lot the last 2 years at texas? If he played w/pain that's certainly a plus in his status, but I thought he missed some games.
You are right. I was simply claiming that we'd be aware of medical problems. Choosing to ignore them, or not, is another issue.

What is NW Insider? And why do your threads look like you're writing a haiku?

As for Orakpo, yeah his injury concerns are a bit of a concern but not a major concern I don't think.

Whoa smoot....But Japanese are usually so elegant when writing there poetry..? That doesn't appear to be the case here...

On to the post. Knee and Ankle injuries are always of concern with any player....I don't have to think back very far to be reminded, Kelly! From the latest I have read on him he is still rehabbing that knee.

I'm on the fence with Orakpo.

Re: Rak's reported knee and ankle issues

C'mon guys, Orakpo's recurring knee has been raised many times now here and elsewhere. Yeah it should be considered serious cuz it's a knee and he's missed time. The abuse his body took in college ball will be gentle compared to what he faces from this point forward...especially getting doubled at DE.

...i don't get the luv for this guy...just a lot of questions and concerns about where he fits best and the durability thing IMO.

Just look at Rocky McIntosh and Malcolm Kelly. Both had league wide red flags about their knees before the draft and.........
Dude! You're sarcasm is so on point! Are we .............. brothers from other mothers or something?
