Rough draft for LB's .. #4 overall Aaron Curry-Cut,, #11 Aaron Maybin Cut, Rak #13,,I R,, Cushing #15 I R and Clay Matthews at 26.. maybe the best .. he's hurt off and on too. Some real bust early at 4 and 11 ..

Clay Matthews will test positive for HGH any day now lol... But I'm glad we got Rak.

Only thing I worry about with him is that his weight is not his "natural size". He went from Steve Urkel to HUGE in like a year in college just from insane workouts and nutrition. And will have to maintain that level to stay close to it I would imagine. So I wonder if the pec injury has anything to do with that.

I really thought this was the year Orakpo proved he was an elite 3-4 OLB by improving his pass rush. With two pectoral injuries, there should be some concern, even if DQ Jackson ending up being okay. Matthews is clearly the better pass rusher, although Rak is the clearly better run defender.

Let's not forget Orakpos is playing out of his natural position. Brian is really a 4-3 defensive end. For someone playing out of position and learning a new one he's doing ok.

I agree with Footy. I also think Orakpo is very athletic as is Kerrigan. They are scheme diverse and have shown they can be a 4-3 de or an effective 3-4 Olb. They still need some seasoning, but are well on their way to being the best olb tandem in the NFL IMO. I believe Rak will come back healthy next year like Dqwell Jackson did this year. I think he will be better than ever and return to the pro bowl. He will lead our D to a top 10 unit and a playoff appearance in 2013. Wink Very Happy Cool
