#1 at DE
Orakpo is a versatile pass rusher who makes a lot of plays. He has a quick first step and plays with good pad level and balance. He possesses a strong upper-body and is able to compete against bigger tackles. He has a great burst and closes in quickly on the quarterback. He gets around the field well in every direction and changes direction fluidly, flowing towards the ball.

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||Washington's pass rush was quite poor last season and Orakpo should be able to compete for a starting job right away opposite veteran DE Andre Carter. Some scouts felt Orakpo was too stiff in the hips to play in a 3-4 defensive scheme and he was much better suited to play in a 4-3 such as the Redskins run.|
