    Does anyone know of anyone else in the league that plays on their feet on 1st and 2nd, and on their hands on 3rd and long, like we're planning on doing with him?

    Kind of hoped he would just be used as an end, but if there's one thing I have faith in, it's Blache's scheme. Can't wait to see this dude in action.

    I've seen the Cowboys use Greg Ellis as a LB most of the game but use him as a rush end in their 3-4 a few plays a game. Does that count?

    I just hope they use him to hit the QB and get as many sacks as possible.

    The Skins really haven't had a dominating DE sinces the days of Manley and Mann IMO.

    I'd be happier if we had him playing end full time but if he's knocking QBs around all day I won't complain.

    I'd prefer he played DE full time too, Henry. This taking a rookie high and making him learn a whole position scares me. I know we are hearing good things but still...let him line up next to Haynesworth full time and get after whoever has the ball.

    He's going in as a Bill.....so personally, I think it would be funny to see Redskins fans showing up en mass for Smith, when he just finished out his career here to break the all time sack record.

    Smith's numbers as a Skin aren't that bad and I like Smith as a player, but to me Bruce Smith's time here is just a bad reminder of the beginnings of the Snyder era and how the Redskins FO royally set this franchise back even worse than it had been. And this is coming from an occasional Snyder supporter/apologist.

    I don't know. I know he spent more time here than Monk in Philly, but I think it would be kind of weird to see Redskins fans out there for Smith; It'd be like Eagle fans showing up for Art Monk's HOF.

    I've got nothing against the guy, but Bruce Smith is a Bill and he should go in as a Bill.

    Not to go totally off topic or anything.

    I'm getting a little nervous that this deal is not done yet. Its not totally Orakpo's fault, because his contract will be based on those around him, and the closest picks to sign around him are Sanchez (#5) and some center (#21). But seriously, let's get a deal done and play some football!

    Well, is the HOF like baseball where you go in as a member of a certain team? I think they look at the player and necessarily the team you played for. Of course he might mention mostly stuff he did while he was in Buffalo when he gives his acceptance speech. It's not like he's going to wear a helmet on his plaque.
