1 5 Brian Orakpo DE Texas
General Manager: BtotheLT

With the fifth pick of the 2009 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Cleveland Browns select Texas defensive end Brian Orakpo.

Here is BtotheLT's reasoning for the pick:

With Aaron Curry off the board I needed to make a conservative decision and draft "workout-warrior" Orakpo. As much as I wanted to take Crabtree, the Browns have many needs and I considered a few different players but eventually settled on the Texas DE. Cleveland was 28th against the rush in the league last season and tallied only 17 sacks. I understand Mangini made a similar choice last season with the Jets however with a new squad he will attempt this again. As they say, if first you don't succeed try again. Bottom line I am very content with this pick considering Orakpo is an extremely athletic specimen that put up great numbers and won numerous awards his senior year. Reflecting on Orakpo's college experiance and his standout weight-room ability I am personally excited to see his NFL transition.
