All this week in anticipation for the 2013 NFL Draft, we will look back at previous draft classes that featured former Texas Longhorns and breakdown the best, the bust and the overall grade. Today we will breakdown the 2009 Texas Longhorns NFL Draft Class.
Texas Longhorns Drafted In The 2009 NFL Draft:
Brian Orakpo (1st Round; 13th Overall)
Roy Miller (3rd Round; 81st Overall)
Henry Melton (4th Round; 105th Overall)
Chris Ogbonnaya (7th Round; 211th Overall)
A first round pick is usually going to be a cornerstone for any franchise. Brian Orakpo is that cornerstone for the Washington Redskins. He was injured for the rest of the 2012 NFL season but the Redskins were able to make the playoffs without him. Think about what a healthy Orakpo (and RG3) can do for the Redskins.
