In my opinion, the Washington Redskins lucked out having Texas defensive end Brian Orakpo fall to them at No. 13. He was one of the most dominant players in the brutal Big 12 South over the past decade and there's every reason to think he'll succeed at the next level. Right now, the arrival of Orakpo to go along with All-Pro defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth should be the club's main story line heading into this weekend's minicamp at Redskins Park.
We all know that's not the case, though. Owner Dan Snyder and sidekick Vinny Cerrato have made this offseason about finding a quarterback -- any quarterback! -- not named Jason Campbell. I thought Thomas Boswell of the Washington Post did a really nice job of putting the situation in perspective in his Sunday column. It's laughable to think that Campbell would have any trust for Snyder or Cerrato at this point. All the closed-door sessions in the world won't heal the wounds from their public longing for Jay Cutler and Mark Sanchez. Campbell's a lot more mature than the whiny Cutler, but the guy would like to keep his dignity. He's always been the consummate team player and he showed signs last season of becoming a much more effective quarterback. Based on the Redskins' actions this offseason, you would think Campbell's been a disaster.
What do you guys think?
