They can afford both, but I get the sense they really don't want to sign Orakpo.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

I think this means Rak's days are numbered. Unless he has a career year this year, he's gone.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

Work ethic and love of the game seems to be very important to Gruden and Co.

To me it kind of feels like they took Moses because he had way to much talent at that point in the draft to override their concerns towards his work ethic. Personally I think hes going to be an excellent fit here but we'll see.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

This guy has incredible instincts for making a play and utilizes more than one move to get to the QB. He showed a bull rush, rip, and spin move on his highlight film. Not to mention his multiple interceptions for touchdowns and deflections

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

I think they will use him like JJ what! you say about my momma (a little early morning humor). They will move him all over the line. IMO they are going bigger looking for tipped balls (please no jokes) at the line of scrimmage.

Time for Rak to put up or shut up. He likes to think of himself as a premiere pass rusher in the DeMarcus Ware mold. Wanna get paid like that? I wanna see 15 sacks and 5 forced fumbles from Rak this season, now that the shackles are supposedly coming off.

I agree Orakpo is gone, if he has a good year he will cost to much to sign, if not, he will want more than he is worth

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

Regardless of what we think about Rak's future, he's on the team for 14. Actually, I like this pick as now we can put another pass rusher on the field. The secondary wasn't the only issue with the defense.

Damn right! Nothing helps a secondary more than a strong pass rush. Plus, we may still pick up a promising CB or safety in this draft.

I have to admit that I started liking this pick a lot more after we were able to get Morgan Moses in the third round.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

I'm gonna let this pick slide because of the Moses one pick, but I will blame Murphy most responsible for my hangover this morning

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

I'm digging the idea of Rak, Kerrigan, Hatcher and Murphy all getting after the passer on 3rd downs.

Pass rush definitely upgraded for 2014.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

Looking at his highlights, he's a clone of Kerrigan. Especially the jumping to bat the balls down. He looks to have very good instincts when it comes to football. I'd bet good money the front office has no plans to re-sign Orakpo and this pick probably solidifies that thought. I suppose that would hinge on them playing him at OLB.

I mean they could find a way to make it work. Do you want to over pay for both? Good franchises dont overpay, they replace. This is their shot at replacing.

Re: Pick 47 Trent Murphy

I'm coming around on this selection. I like scrappy players, he definitely will get in there and fight through the whistle with aggression. The fact that we got Moses anyway makes me feel much better about this.

I don't think it means Orakpo isn't in the long term plans. I think it means the team wants as many pass rushers on the field as possible on passing downs. I see no reason we don't keep Rak, Kerrigan, and Murphy around long term. Rotate them throughout the game and stay fresh.

Then here's the kicker: on nickels, slide Kerrigan inside with his hand down alongside Hatcher, and let Orakpo and Murphy come off the edge. If I were an offensive coordinator I'd feel tortured by that look.
