I agree with his prediction that we'll take Orakpo (or possibly Everette Brown) at #3 if we don't trade down. There's no way we can come out of this draft without a pass rusher and without a 2nd round pick chances are good that Barwin, Sidbury et. al will all be gone by the time we pick again in the 3rd. I think Orakpo's sorta been a victim of being compared to Gholston and a lot of things have been said about him that aren't really true. For example, there's a rumor that he "disappeared entirely" in against OSU in the fiesta bowl. The highlights starting at 2:03 in this video seem to indicate otherwise:

Trading down seems to be the best option but it's likely they'll have to throw away the draft chart in order to do so.
