Russell Shepard took to the field for LSU’s Pro Day, hoping to impress NFL draft scouts and executives.
Well, apparently he was impressive, but not with his 40 time (although a 4.51 was better than expected). The event was broadcast on ESPN3, which is only on the internet, not television.
Thus, someone must have thought no one was watching when he asked if Shepard “could run with a snake in his pants.”
Hey, if Oscar Pistorious can run with no legs, why wouldn’t Shepard be able to with three?
We’re still hunting down the video, but for now, head on over to Deadspin to check out Shepard’s 40-yard dash and his “snake”.
