Skins Are on the Clock

The Redskins have given strong indications to DE Brian Orakpo throughout this process that he had a great chance of being the pick. Now, this time of year, teams say a lot of things to a lot of players, but they have been all over this kid for a while.

Now, though, T Michael Oher is still on the board at 13, the need for a RT is extreme and may be too hard to pass.
I expect them to explore all trade down options as well.

Broncos could continue a mini run on DEs, and they too spent a lot of time on Orakpo.

should've gone with Oher, but can't argue with the pick.

Hell yeah! It took them 90 seconds to make this pick. Awesome selection.

Smart move (did someone tie Snyder down and tape his mouth shut?)

Still need an o-lineman. Guess it'll happen tomorrow.

Would have rather had Oher but I don't hate this pick. We still have a screen door for an Oline.

He looks great in the red and yellow!

Good solid pick. Whew, that was a stressful month.

Wrong again JLC. Skins made their pick in 20 seconds. Not only did they not pick YOUR guy but they obviously gave absolutely NO consideration to trading down with Orakpo on the board.

You need to concentrate on a sport you know like maybe soccer.
