Rak's reported knee and ankle issues
 
Watching ESPN and listening to NW insider, I found out that Rak has
had, for the past two years, recurring knee and ankle injuries that
have not healed correctly. In moving to the pros, do think there's
a chance of that recurring set of injuries becoming degenerative?

Could be something to look into but I don't think it's serious.

That's the reason I haven't been really high on Orakpo, but all else about him sounds good. I like it that he's a smart dude.

He had a great combine but it still sounds like he gets mixed reviews. I like E. Brown a lot too.

I hope we get either get one of the top 4 OTs or trade back.

I am not saying that the injury report is wrong.

However, every year on draft week, injury reports magically surface. It is a way of getting guys devalued at the last moment. Most of these reports are bogus or they would have surfaced earlier.

Even if the injury report is real, one would think that the FO has already looked into such health issues.

We have a draft forum, please post in the appropriate forums.

Good point, but JLC has said a no. of times that the FO went against the medical staff's advie in drafting M. Kelly. And Rocky was known to have a degenerative knee condition as well.

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.

Just look at Rocky McIntosh and Malcolm Kelly. Both had league wide red flags about their knees before the draft and.........[/quote]

Not the greatest example....LMAO!
