Amidst the bright lights of the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, competition between players is abundant at almost every single position.

Every single position, that is, except one.

Meet Jimmy Landes, the only long snapper invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in 2016.

"It’s just an honor," Landes said. "I was at the Senior Bowl and my phone went off, and it was an email, and it said: “NFL Combine, congrats, you’ve been invited.” From the past years I know it’s been only been one. And man, I left the media actually that day… I just walked out. I was so happy."

In August, Landes met some Internet notoriety with his trick snap, from the top of Baylor’s stadium, into a trash can on the field. Now, he’ll try to pull another trick…. trying to crack an NFL roster. He knows the odds are long.

Landes' full story is in the video above.
