Brian Orakpo, DE, Texas
|9. Green Bay Packers|
Drafter: dkloster3Reasons for drafting: "With the Pack switching to a 3-4 defense this year, they will need a pass rusher to complement Aaron Kampman. Orakpo is the most dominating, disruptive defensive player in the draft. A lot of people are clamoring for secondary help for the Pack, but a strong rush will cover any hole in the secondary. Was tempted to take a flier on Andre Smith, but in the end, the D is too bad to overlook. Orakpo, the steal of the draft."
