Saints Select WR Kenny Stills In 5th Round, Check Him Out Posing In A Dress
New Orleans Saints select wide receiver Kenny Stills out of Oklahoma with their 5th round pick. At 6’0, 194 pounds, Stills has exceptional speed, running a 4.38 in the 40 yard dash at the NFL combine.
Character issues are a small concern. Stills was suspended one game in 2012 after being arrested and charged with DUI in the off season. He caused a stir on twitter after posing in a purple dress as a joke (pictured left).
Stills’ told the Tulsa World, “”I went to a wedding, Cade Davis’, who played basketball here. It was a bridesmaid’s dress. I put it on joking, got a laugh out of the girl whose dress it was. She took a picture of it and then posted it on Twitter. She didn’t have that many followers, but I guess one of them was (Oklahoma City sportscaster) Abigail Ogle. She got ahold of it and retweeted it, and it kind of got everywhere.” [Tulsa World]
Stills started three years for the Sooners. His most productive season was 2012. As a senior, he reeled in 82 catches for 959 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Stills has a knack for getting under the oppositions’ skin, mainly due to his blocking ability. He’ll blindside a defensive back and play until just after the whistle.
Stills isn’t the first Saint to pose in a dress. Anyone remember this ESPN Magazine cover with Ricky Williams?
