Season Projections
Orakpo had something of a bounceback season in 2013, enough so that the Redskins saw fact to apply the franchise tag to Orakpo this year. According to Neil Greenberg of The Washington Post, it wasn't hard to see why. 'From a strict pass rushing angle,' Greenberg said, 'Orakpo was tied for fifth among outside linebackers playing in a 3-4 defense in Pro Football Focus' Pass Rushing Productivity metric, which measures pressure created on a per snap basis with weighting toward sacks. Those waiting for Orakpo to become an elite linebacker have missed what's right under their noses, the Redskins star is already performing as one of the best linebackers in the league.' That may well be, but even in last year's big season Orakpo barely cracked the Top-40 linebackers in Fantasy Sharks Default IDP Scoring. He does get a nice bump in big-play formats, however.

Washington Redskins Team Talk
Did NFL network really say we won the division in 2012 because the other 3 teams just got worse???! And here i thought we were actually getting better than we were over the last decade......... Giants got issues all around, Dallas supposedly has ...
 
Can I get a "Hail!"...
 
just thought it might be time to get this started....... after 20yrs of miserable qb play, i can honestly say it will be fun to be a Redskin fan again.........
 
so i have to take a wild guess and say we will be getting another top 10 draft pick and this year i think we do spend it on a qb. who are the top qb's in this years draft and what are your thoughts on them?...
 
Hi, My name is Larry A. and I'm a Shanahaniganaholic. I had been clean since Tatum Bell. I had a moment of weakness and picked up Torain. I'm back on the wagon and will no longer carry any shanahan rb's on my roster....
