Orakpo has 26.5 career sacks over 45 career games.  He’s had sacks from left end or right end.  He’s had sacks from bull rushes, rips to the inside, and jukes to the outside.  But his first NFL sack actually came against the man taken 12 slots before him in the 2009 NFL Draft: Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.
