Post-Draft Outlook:
BEST PICK: The Redskins were thwarted in their efforts to move up to choose Southern California quarterback Mark Sanchez and Texas linebacker Brian Orakpo, but then lucked out to have Orakpo still be there at No. 13. Orakpo will begin his NFL career at left end but is versatile enough to play strong-side linebacker. Those were the Redskins' biggest needs going into the draft and are the positions that five-year starter Marcus Washington filled the past five years (the latter often as a pass rusher on third downs). Orakpo was sixth in the nation with 11.5 sacks as a senior and should be the Redskins' best outside pass rusher. A closer look at the Redskins' picks: Round 1/13 -- Brian Orakpo, DE, 6-3, 260, Texas...The Redskins biggest dilemma with Orakpo will be whether to play him at left end (where he'll begin his career) or strong-side linebacker. The son of Nigerian immigrants was the first defensive lineman picked by Washington in the first round in 12 years. - by The Sports Xchange

 Draft Scout Brian Orakpo News
06/02/16 - LB Brian Orakpo was idle in Tuesday's OTA work due to some stiffness in his back. Orakpo said he is fine and was just getting a day off due to the soreness.
11/15/15 - LB Brian Orakpo's sack Sunday gave him his third consecutive game with at least one sack. It is the third such streak of his career.
10/11/15 - LB Brian Orakpo had modest numbers, finishing with one tackle for a loss, but really played much better than they showed. Orakpo was a steady presence in the Bills' backfield and forced them to account for him, leaving teammates free to make plays.
03/14/15 - LB Brian Orakpo left the Redskins for the Titans Friday (March 13), agreeing to terms on a four-year, $31 million contract that includes a $5 million signing bonus and $13.5 million guaranteed.
03/05/15 - OLB Brian Orakpo, unrestricted FA update, was a Pro Bowl pick in 2009, 2010 and 2013, but he missed the final 14 games of 2012 with a torn pec and the final nine games of 2014 with a similar injury. What's more, Orakpo, who has averaged 9.5 sacks during his four full seasons, managed just half a sack before he went down last year which was hardly the way to prove himself to head coach Jay Gruden. With Justin Houston off the market, Orakpo figures to get a much better offer from a team other than the Redskins, who drafted his heir apparent, Trent Murphy, in the second round last May.
