This great find at Sportsbybrooks from Phillyburbs.com has this article about Andy Studebaker and the youtube video that eventually led to him being drafted in this years NFL Draft.
ï¿½Nobody ever heard of this kid, but then his workout started popping up on You Tube and next thing you know, he got super hot and everybody (in the NFL) is looking at him,ï¿½ Eagles general manager Tom Heckert said. ï¿½If it wasn’t for You Tube, he probably wouldn’t have been drafted.ï¿½
Youtube is amazing. It can get you a record deal with Justin Timberlake, creating a theme song for Bill Simmons’ podcast, and now getting you drafted by an NFL team. If I put a youtube video up of myself playing Pop-a-Shot, I wonder if that could land me a tryout with the New York Knicks. And if you didn’t know, I am ambidextrous.
