Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

Great pic, FO did a great job putting a solid D-Line together this offseason. What are we gonna do with the 3rd round pick? Do we have a starting OLB? I say use the pick to address that need or an O-Line man.

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

An OL would have been great but this is a beyond incredible piece of luck for the Skins that he dropped to 13. Now, the skins have a d line that can kind of match up with that fearsome line from NY.

don't forget Griff, which will play a big part as well. If there's no pass rush this year then there's one serious problem-HAIL

I agree...more important now than ever to get Marcus back in case the Orakpo @ SLB experiment doesn't work (assuming that's what Blache tries to do).

I gave it an A. I can't believe we got him at 13 and glad we filled the need. God bless the Jets!!

Even though I mentioned the same thing, it seems more and more that Sanchez was a smoke screen. Although Orakpo falling to us was mainly due to all these surprise picks (i.e. Hey-Bey pick, etc., etc.).

Yeah, if Crabtree got taken by OAK then you'd think SF prob would've picked something other than WR, giving Orakpo at least another chance to be taken

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

To have player this caliber available is really quite a bonus for us. We're talking about the best true pass-rushing end in the draft. To me we needed a OT more but Orakpo is relatively a better prospect than Oher. So Oher at a position of great need versus Orakpo at a position of somewhat lesser need sorta washes mathematically to me. Default to taking the better player and let the chips fall. Nobody should be disappointed.

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

I have been hoping against all hopes that the Sanchez stuff was just an elaborate ruse invovling all parties, including JC.

Re: Meet the Beast: Brian Orakpo

I like that McShay projects his best position in the NFL as a 4-3 DE.

I wonder if Rob Jackson will give him his college number 98? I wonder if Rob Jackson will make the team now for that matter...
