On Tuesday, Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo told the media at the Nike uniform launch in New York City that he wouldn’t be happy if the Redskins end up with Andrew Luck, instead of Robert Griffin III.
“I would love to get Griffin,” said Orakpo, per Yahoo Sports. “Depending on what the Colts do.”
Orakpo believes the best outcome would be for the Colts to draft Luck and the Redskins end up with Griffin III.
“It was all Andrew Luck but now the tide has turned,” said Orakpo, who has 29 sacks in three NFL seasons. “It all depends on what the Colts want to do. It just seems like Luck sits with the Colts organization and scheme better and it seems that RG3 sits with our scheme better.
“That is because of the different offenses that we run, especially our offense. RG3 would fit perfectly with the bootleg action and all the different things we do. With the Colts and what they had with Payton [Manning] and the way they can just install Andrew Luck, they are going to get the same kind of guy. It seems more of a better fit all round.”
I’m glad Orakpo thinks RG3 is a great fit for the Redskins. Would love to hear what he’d have to say to Donovan McNabb, who doesn’t believe he’s a good fit.
