Texas defensive end Brian Orakpo figures to be a first-round pick in the NFL Draft next month. He's a dynamic pass-rush talent, and with the 3-4 defense quickly becoming the "in" thing, a guy like him is going to be in demand in the upper part of the first round.
With that in mind, Texas' Pro Day workouts were held Wednesday in Austin. NFL.com's Gil Brandt was on hand, and he was quick and decisive in his praise of Orakpo. It seems that there is indeed plenty of interest in him.
