I like the pick. With him and AH if we can't get to the QB this year we never will.

The knee injury is recurring...not random.

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

I wish we had gotten an OT but the chips did not fall that way. I think the FO did a good job of maximizing value for the pick.

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

A+ pick...he was the one guy I really wanted but thought it was unrealistic to have him there at 13. I was getting more and more excited every time a team took another player. Make no mistake, this kid is a beast, and we got a steal. Yes, he was at 13, so how much of a steal can he be? Well, he will put up numbers worthy of a #1. Smart pick...thank you FO for not kicking the team in the nutts with a dumb trade for Sanchez! We are MUCH better off! This gives us an amazing line. I am super excited for our pass rush this year! I don't recall the last time it looked this good!

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

Yeah that is why I wanted Oher. THis guy is a beast, but if he has a weak knee that might come into play sooner than later. The combine stuff doesn't faze me though. Since we were smart and kept JC and didn't go for Sanchez, you would have thought we would have decided to give him some help up front. Still we addressed a glaring need of ours and I give the pick an A!!!!! Just hope that knee crap can be chalked up to "shit happens".

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

Do you mean every day injuries in the sense that he seems to be injured every day?

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

I do like the pick, also he said first thing he is going to do--- Buy a BIG bed. Great answer. With our DL rotation I think our D will be fierce.

Just sprains. Don't ever look too deep into "combine injuries", they are often ways to get out of doing the combine. Sprains are common, he has no structual issues, and with professional trainers, he will only get stronger.

Which KNEE are you referring to? He's sprained both.

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

So best starting front four in the NFL, Cater Grif, Hay, and Rak? On paper looks like it.

Also gotta love Rak's answer to what he was gonna buy with his first pick. A huge bed, nice. Also he looked generally happy to get pick by Wash.

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

I wouldn't say the best front four, but I will say it's a considerably improved front four. The best we've seen here in quite some time.

Haynesworth is going to help his progress a bunch- both on the practice field and on gameday.
