Would you consider trading Orakpo and Trent Williams for picks?

I know a lot of people love Orakpo and probably think I'm crazy for suggesting we trade him. I like the guy a lot too, but it's obvious that he doesn't fit the 3-4 as well as he fits the 4-3. His production has decline each year mainly because he's playing out of position. He's more a 4-3 de than a 3-4 olb. I would consider trading him to move up and acquire a higher pick or more picks. Right now, he has a lot of value.

In my opinion, Trent Williams is a average LT. He has had some good games here and there. I just believe that Smith has outperformed him against some really tough competition. This makes TW expendable in my book. If we can trade him and get some picks or use him as bait to move up in the draft I would be all for it.

What do you think?

Orakpo, maybe a first definitely a second and either another second or a third.

Williams, pre-pot a 2nd and 4th, post-pot 3rd.

Well, my gues is TW is worth a third or fourth at this point, and Orakpo, a second or third. Now if it gets us Luck or Bradford, I would be in. But this starts the rebuilding all over.

I'm not turning on anyone. I just don't think Orakpo fit our defensive system. I would be better for him and the organization to make a trade where he can play in a system that fits his skill set and we get a get a olb that fits ours. I never really liked Trent Williams. I think he has the potential to be a all pro ot, however, he hasn't shown me much on the field. I would trade him in a heart beat.

Losing Rak might set us back a little bit, but losing TW really won't mean much. The way I see it the OL has looked a lot better without him and Jamal Brown.

I like what Willie Smith has doine so far also, but itt has only been three games and I think allot of what happened was helped by scheme. He spent a tonn of time get blown backwards. I think he needs to do a little more before we crown him. I remember feeling the same way about Stephan Heyer.

Maybe you're right brother. I'm just not sold on TW. I think Willie Smith has done a better job so far.

Re: Would you consider trading Orakpo and Trent Williams for picks?

Rak is fine at OLB in the 3-4 and has improved each year, even though his sack total is slightly down this year. He's still on pace for career highs in other areas including tackles, forced fumbles, and passes defensed.

I wouldn't deal him unless it was a worthwhile deal.

Smith has played ok but I think it's pretty premature to say he's made Trent Williams expendable.

Way too early to be crowning Willie Smith. If we were to trade TW we would have to make sure to add top notch LT talent from the draft or FA. Otherwise the trade would be a step backwards.

Unless we are getting a franchise QB or Luck in return for one of the two. Trading both for just picks is retarded.
