Post Micheal Johnson
I've seen this guy listed all over the place as a target for the Lions next year... A guy people look at as a top 5 pick... I don't get it... How does a guy that has never had more than 5 sacks in a year and has had injury concerns over his career a lock for a top 5 pick?

Just say no to Johnson...

What about that Orakpo kid? I saw him on ESPN the other day and he looked like a beast but possibly a work-out warrior? How do you guys compare Orakpo to Johnson?

Some may disagree with me about this but i don't think we should take a DE with our 1st overall pick. I know 5-0 n Avril haven't looked promising so far but it does take an average of three years for DE's to fully develop. I like Orakpo but he might not be there at our 2nd overall pick.

Slevie is still ahead of Orakpo on most boards. I think Johnson is also. I think Johnsons a bust though.

No way Orkapo hangs around till the Lions second first round pick. Orkapo, Selvie, and Johnston may all be top 15 picks, with Orkapo's work out numbers probably putting him top 5 maybe. Ive heard about Selvies injurty history but dont know a whole lot about it, but he seems like he has the most talent. Johnson is the wild card, he seems almost extactly like Calais Campbell from the U last year. Great seasons until the year he came out and while he has a great frame his production doesnt match the potential.

I gotta be honest, I think that Orakpo will jump to Top 5 ratings during the combine. That would put him in a perfect spot to get drafted here. . .
