For the first time ever, EA Sports and ESPN are opening up voting for who graces the Madden '12 cover. The vote features 31 players and 1 fan section (Seahawks) to represent every franchise. There are two brackets with 1 through 16 seeds.

Brian Orakpo was chosen to represent the Redskins. Orakpo is a #12 seed and is facing off against the #5 seed Hakeem Nicks (5 seed? really ESPN?).

Curse aside, it would be pretty cool to see a Redskin on the cover, especially a beast like Orakpo. I'd love to see a offensive lineman or defensive player win this thing, just as something different. But, I feel like Michael Vick may be the run away winner of this thing.

Some other interesting 1st Round Match Ups:

#3 MoJo Drew vs. #14 Dwight Freeney
#6 Andre Johnson vs. #11 Chris Johnson
#1 Aaron Rodgers vs. #16 Ndamukong Suh
#4 Danny Woodhead vs. #13 Steve Johnson
