Let me ask you this. What is the difference between Vernon Gholston
last year and Orakpo this year?
As an Orakpo fan, this is actually a scary comparison to me. But I would say that Orakpo has better pass rushing technique and more power in his hips. He also seems to be more aware of what is going on around him (ex. not getting fooled as often against misdirection). Against the run, I think they are even.
