"Orakpo did not disappoint, posting a 10-foot, 10-inch broad jump, a time of 4.45 in the short shuttle and 7.26 in the three-cone drill. Orakpo held the rest of his numbers from the Combine.
Thompson would never tip his hand, but I think that Green Bay would probably be interested in someone like him for their new scheme. I know Thompson was impressed with Orakpo and expressed surprise at how big his upper body is."
It would be very ironic if he was drafted by Eric Mangini in Cleveland at number 5 overall. Cleveland plays a 3-4 defense and Orakpo would likely be converted to outside linebacker. Last year, when Mangenius was coaching the Jets, they used the 6th overall pick to take LB Vernon Gholston, who's been quite the bust as he attemps to convert from college defensive end to an NFL outside linebacker.
