Brian Orakpo knew his assignment. He had the coverage on Robbie Agnone.

But Orakpo could not help checking out what the quarterback--Chase Daniel, in this case--was doing behind the line of scrimmage.

That hesitation allowed Daniel to get the ball to Agnone, the undrafted rookie tight end, for a 12-yard pickup across the middle of the field.

“I was kind of mad at myself,” Orakpo said afterwards.

If it was a mistake, then it was one mistake too many for Orakpo.

The Redskins’ top draft pick has opened eyes during training camp with his physical prowess.

Thousands of fans witnessed Orakpo’s skills during Saturday’s scrimmage at Redskins Park. The scrimmage was part of Fan Appreciation Day at the team’s facility.

Orakpo and fellow rookie Jeremy Jarmon were so quick up the field that offensive linemen had difficulty picking them both up, Jim Zorn said.

Orakpo was credited with one tackle in the unofficial stats circulated by the Redskins’ public relations department, but he was regularly in the backfield and had opportunities for several sacks.

Orakpo's Exceeding Expectations
The buzz about rookie defensive end/strong-side linebacker Brian Orakpo continues to grow.

In his first NFL training camp, Orakpo has exceeded expectations that were already high when the Skins selected him with the No. 13 overall pick.

Orakpo often was unblockable during Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage when he rushed the passer as a hand-down end. Although Orakpo did not go against first-team tackles on every rep, he again displayed the speed and pass-rushing skills that have impressed veterans since the beginning of camp.
