    <br /> <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>INDIANAPOLIS - Texas defensive end Brian Orapko is viewed by some as the best defensive end in the draft.</p> <p>If he's viewed that way by NFL decision makers with the first 14 picks, than the Houston Texans won't even have a shot at him, but he's got to be intriguing to them considering that their primary offseason mission is to find pass-rush help to take some attention away from Mario Williams.</p> <p>Williams accounted for 12 of his team's 25 sacks last season.</p> <p>Orapko's official measurements were 6-3, and 263 - that's pretty impressive weight-wise for a guy who was 210 in high school and now says he's eating all the time.</p> <p>Here are some quick highlights of his podium session Saturday:</p> <p><strong>What is your best position?</strong></p> <p>"Any position. Right end, left end, Sam, Wil, mike, anything, 3-4, 4-3, it doesn't matter. That's the thing about being that athletic and as versatile as I am, you can put a guy in anything.</p> <p><strong>Are you serious about the Mike?</strong></p> <p>"No, I just threw that out there."</p> <p><strong>Are you a top-five player?</strong></p> <p>"I think I can be. I think have the potential, the athleticism and also the learning curve to be. It's not about the best player available. It's about the best player that's needed. So we'll see.''</p> <p><strong>What's your favorite position in a perfect world?</strong></p> <p>"In a perfect world, I just want to rush the passer, first through fourth down if it was a perfect world. Any position where I can be effective doing what I naturally do best and that's getting after the passer and affecting him. It's not all about the sacks, it's all about pressure.''</p>
