Texas defensive end/linebacker/play maker Brian Orakpo was just at the podium here in Indianapolis and he said he met with the Redskins last night.

The Redskins told him they envision him as a strong-side linebacker in their base 4-3 defense and then as a pass rusher on throwing downs.


He measured 6-foot-3 and 263 pounds and will do defensive line and linebacker workouts later this week.
