Redskins rookie LB / DE Brian Orakpo
Redskins rookie linebacker / defensive end Brian Orakpo graces the cover of tonight's Gameday program with a feature story inside on the former University of Texas standout.
Orakpo, who is slated to start at strong-side linebacker this evening as he makes the transition from mainly playing on the line in college, talks about the excitement of rushing off the edge on passing downs.
"Sacks," said Orakpo. "Love 'em. Not even sacks, just hitting quarterbacks and watching them not complete the [pass.] And watching them get up real slow. I mean, I love it. I love it. It's a rush. Because once you do it one time, you want to see what move is going to allow you do it the next time."
Orakpo has registered six tackles, but no sacks so far in preseason action,
Also inside today's program, there's a short look at the Patriots with a focus on the offseason roster moves, particularly the addition of running back Fred Taylor and the solid rookie season of linebacker Jerod Mayo.
