Franchise Players



I'm running this as a series across the SB Nation NFL blogs. Five most important players to the franchise. Just one catch: they must be with the team for the long term (four years or more).

In no order:

Brian Orakpo, OLB/DE: A sack artist as a rookie; good OLB's are hard to find for a 3-4 defense. Orakpo is going to be good.

London Fletcher, ILB: ILB's keep going. Just ask Ray Lewis. Fletcher works and plays too hard to not find a role in the 3-4.

Chris Cooley, TE: Ol' Reliable for whoever starts at QB. He and Davis form a very nice TE tandem.

Fred Davis, TE: Started to breakout last season. Causes huge matchup problems with him and Cooley.

Derrick Dockery, LG: Washington's signing proved to be a smart one, as helped the line start to coalesce late in the season. Should be with the team for a while.

Your turn!
