Redskins Draft Includes (At Least) Two Amateur Models

Posted by Matt Terl on April 30, 2011 – 6:25 pm

Sarah Kogod over at NBC’s Capital Games blog was all over the first part of this story: Redskins first-round draft pick Ryan Kerrigan‘s sordid history as a fashion model. (Actually, the history isn’t particularly sordid at all: Kerrigan — along with a few other draft prospects — were involved in a project focused on “captur[ing] the brand ethos of Five Four and the journey of professional athletes transitioning into the next level of their careers.” A catalog shoot, basically. Read the details here.)

Well, it turns out that fifth round pick wide receiver Niles Paul has also posed for a professional photographer, one Mark Petinga. The image below seems slightly outlandish — I call it “Shirtless Guy Praying On Train Tracks” — but it’s a motif that Petinga has returned to more than once; there’s a variation on his Facebook page featuring Detroit Lions linebacker Cliff Avril.

In a vacuum, there’s nothing at all unusual about these pictures — the non-train-track portraits are perfectly normal and, in fact, are excellent images — but combined with the Kerrigan glamor shots, I think they really tell a hidden story of the 2011 Redskins draft.
