The draft scouting process is generally a long and complicated one, but there are times when various outliers jump up for other reasons than the usual height/weight/speed concerns. You may remember former San Jose State defensive end Jarron Gilbert getting a great deal of notoriety for a 2008 YouTube video, in which he displayed his athleticism and explosiveness by jumping out of a swimming pool just before the 2009 NFL draft. He was originally selected by the Chicago Bears in the third round of that draft. Since then, he's also spent time on the New York Jets roster, and he's now with the Buffalo Bills.
Turns out that the Bills are open to other YouTube sensations, as they made clear this week. When Monmouth College quarterback Alex Tanney put this video up last year, the buzz started quickly -- and it hasn't stopped.
