Brian Orakpo, OLB, Washington Redskins

Orakpo graded out as the fourth-best 3-4 OLB in 2013 according to Pro Football Focus. He was able to notch 11 sacks during a campaign in which he was coming back from a season-ending torn pectoral muscle. His 11 sacks for the Washington Redskins ties the 2013 Tennessee Titan sack leader – Jurrell Casey.

With the move to a 3-4 base defense, the Titans could use an edge-rushing threat like Orakpo. Getting a veteran like Orakpo would give the Titans a sure-fire solution with proven production. It would also free them up to use their first-round draft pick for other team needs.

The problem with Orakpo is that he will demand a huge payday and will likely re-sign with the Redskins. At best, this makes seeing Orakpo in a Titans jersey a fringe possibility.
