The old gorilla in the woods prank scares NFL prospects

Scores of NFL prospects are working hard around the country at training academies in preparation for next week’s NFL Scouting Combine.

One of the most popular camps is run by Tom Shaw out of Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando.

Anthony Amey of WSBTV was there to file a report on the athletes, and happened to witness a prank that ranks behind the “Banana in the tailpipe” routine,  but is still pretty damn funny.

    Even my wife laughed. That’s pretty funny, especially the reaction of the guy at the end that dropped down on one knee like he was going to have a heart attack.

    “Damn, I’s sure it was Dareus. I hate getting hit by that guy!”.

    Then he stuck a banana up his tailpipe and really cracked everyone up.

    Prospects who attended the Tom Shaw camp dropped on draft boards this year. Scouts were intrigued by their speed and agility but didn’t know how they would hold up under pressure.

    That was stupid. If your wife laughed, you should reconsider her.
