Orchard is technically kind of a tweener because while he is 6’4, he only weighs 255 pounds. That worked out just fine when he was an outside linebacker his first two seasons because it allowed him to play in space more and not have to worry about getting double teamed by an offensive tackle and tight end, one of the hardest things for most tweeners to do. But Orchard always played the run pretty stoutly, so I don’t worry about the change to defensive end being hard for him, especially since that’s what he played in college.
The one thing that is going to be hard to predict is how much playing time Orchard will get. One would assume Garrett is starting at defensive end on one side and Ogbah on the other.
That made his evaluation really frustrating because when he did get opportunities he made plays. I mean the guy averaged over 24 yards a reception, which is fucking insane at any level of football. He had 10 touchdowns on just 40 catches which was also absurd. Because of all Cheap Jerseys Outlet Shop that untapped potential, I figured Dorsett’s best days would be ahead of him in the NFL where teams were more likely to actually throw him the ball.
His rookie year he got off to a slow start. He missed five games in the regular season, didn’t have any starts, only caught 18 balls, and averaged a paltry 12.5 yards per catch to go with one touchdown. Not exactly what Indianapolis expected when it took him in the first Cheap Jerseys Shop round.
