Talk about being “pretty” good? How about the fact that the Washington Redskins are the third-most attractive team in the NFL? All told, the poll at Fanatics.com compiles a head shot of the players and asks fans to vote on the most attractive based off these photos only. Hence, the Redskins earned a 4.98 rating, trailing only the Tennessee Titans and San Francisco 49ers.
Individually, five Redskins players are on the list of the most attractive individually in the NFL. As the smoke clears, the most attractive player on the team is linebacker Will Compton. On the other hand, he is also the fifth-most attractive player in the NFL, tied with a 7.7 overall rating. Meanwhile, four other Redskins follow consecutively on the Top 10 list voted by fans. In seventh place with a 7.5 rating is outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan. More importantly, the six-year performer recently proposed to his girlfriend after one of his best seasons.
Elsewhere, running back Mack Brown ties for eighth place with a 7.4 rating. Meanwhile, wide receiver Pierre Garcon ranks ninth. The now-former Redskins wideout is also the winner of the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. It is recognition for all of the work that he does for the community. Finally, linebacker Houston Bates finishes the list for the Redskins. All told, he sits in 10th place with a 7.2 rating.
Most lists you see about ratings in the NFL have to do with actual football statistics. Then again, it is quite nice to see some rankings based solely on having fun. Honestly, there were many other players on the Redskins who could have made the lists. Then again, with players both coming and going, it will be interesting to see how moves effect the team’s rating next year.
