Tuesday, May 5: Brian Orakpo's Debut In Uniform

Posted by Matt Terl on May 5, 2009 – 10:22 am

Because of rules governing rookie attendance, Brian Orakpo isn’t here for OTAs this week. But — as has been noted here on this blog, in today’s Sporting News, and in plenty of other places — he was here for minicamp, and he looked terrific.

Most reports of him looking terrific have (understandably) focused on his onfield performance. How he’s handling the linebacker position, how quick his first step is, all of that good stuff. They’re not overly concerned with how he looks in his practice jersey, which is how it should be.

All of that said, he did pose in full Redskins gameday attire — the team wanted to take pictures for various in-season uses, and this was the best time to do it — and he looked just as menacing and imposing as you’d hope.

A few more pictures after the jump.

They tried a few outside, although the weather wasn’t cooperating fully.

Because of the rain, staffers provided Orakpo with an umbrella to keep the uniform as dry and clean as possible between shots. Very few people can pull off menacing and imposing while holding an umbrella, but I can tell you that Orakpo came as close as anyone could.
