Default Brian Orakpo

We need to get out of the narrow focus tunnel-vision on Curry-Raji-Maualuga around here. Curry will never (ever) be there, Raji probably won't be there, and Maualuga sounds more and more like he's too risky.

I wanna talk more about this guy ... he's at least as good a prospect as Raji or Maualuga, a better chance to be available, and as a 3-4 OLB, he fills one of the three glaring defensive needs, NT OLB S.

Sure he's scary cause he sounds like Jarvis Moss, but he also sounds like Demarcus Ware.

The only way we rule out this guy is if we're okay with Dumervil and Jarvis at WOLB.

Im scared of Texas players

its seems like they have been busting lately
Vince Young, Michael Huff, Tim Crowder(most likely), Derrick Johnson(well he isnt bad but isnt the playmaker he was drafted to be)

Given the way the draft will likely go at this point, I think Orakpo at 12 would be perfect.

Either Orakpo, Raji or Everett Brown should be there at 12...I'd be shocked if all three were taken ahead of us

Everett Brown is my pick. Dude is quick as a cat, has a great spin move and is big.

I read - I think it was Mayock - who said Brown is way, way smaller than listed. Might barely crack 230 at the combine.

Really? He certainly passes the eyeball test.

I don't like this player much because he hasn't developed pass rush moves. I want someone at this point in the draft who is polished a little more.

In the NFL you can't get by on athleticism and I haven't seen Orapko really develop many different moves to get to the QB.

If Raji is gone, I like Everett Brown and Tyson Jackson. I'd even prefer Malcolm Jenkins over Orakpo.

Yeah, compare his senior season stats with Tim Crowder's (which I'm too lazy to go find) and you'll see why I'm lukewarm on him.
