McIntosh, Fletcher and Orakpo to be the LB Starters?

The Washington Post throws it out there that rookie LB Brian Orakpo along with Rocky McIntosh and London Fletcher will be the starters if things get underway today:

Over the past few seasons, the Redskins have bolstered their defense with signings and high draft picks, including the free agent acquisition of middle linebacker London Fletcher and the selection of Miami product Rocky McIntosh, both of whom enter this season slated as starters. Entering this season, the linebacker corps could be a major strength, but also somewhat of a question mark, with injuries and inexperience placing the group in a “worth keeping an eye on” category…especially the strong side linebacker position. If the season opened today the starters would be: Rocky McIntosh, London Fletcher and Brian Orakpo, a unit that could be explosive and one of the strengths of a defense that finished ranked fourth in the NFL last season, but also has its concerns.
