I make like umm 30x less than that guy. Thats, like umm, sad.
In all seriousness, it sounds like either a tic, Tourettes (which I don't think he has), or severe social anxiety

That was not stuttering... those are word whiskers. While most people use word whiskers on a daily basis, that was beyond anything I have heard before.

The guy was either extremely anxious about his part in the presser, Or the guy is dumb as rocks.

For Lankster, this ESPN-televised show against a home-state team offers his biggest stage yet, which holds considerable allure to a slow-starting, junior-college transfer, one-time suspended Mountaineer and young man with a lifelong stutter everywhere but when rapping. That last part is one of many Lankster facets that earn the admiration of Marks, his former teammate at Vigor High in Mobile and friend still.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stuttering#Secondary_behaviors
Secondary behaviors

Secondary stuttering behaviors are unrelated to speech production and are learned behaviors which become linked to the primary behaviors.

Secondary behaviors include escape behaviors, in which a stutterer attempts to terminate a moment of stuttering. Examples might be physical movements such as sudden loss of eye contact, eye-blinking, head jerks, hand tapping, interjected "starter" sounds and words, such as "um," "ah," "you know".[5][6] In many cases, these devices work at first, and are therefore reinforced, becoming a habit that is subsequently difficult to break.[6]

Secondary behaviors also refer to the use of avoidance strategies such as avoiding specific words, people or situations that the person finds difficult. Some stutterers successfully use extensive avoidance of situations and words to maintain fluency and may have little or no evidence of primary stuttering behaviors. Such covert stutterers may have high levels of anxiety, and extreme fear of even the most mild disfluency.[5]
Obviously, he was very nervous. Darren Sproles had very similar moments here too, but has shown improvement the last few years.

Yeah I agree with you. It's quite sad really. I can't even bring myself to watch the whole video.

And yeah, Sproles had the same problem. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPI2Yd-vrv4

Same here. Best of luck to him, though. Glad to see he made the team.

Well don't I feel like a tool now.

Here I thought he just had a bad case of nerves or was just dumb as shit.

Never meant to imply that a disability like his equaled anything remotely to stupidity.

It took him the same amount of time to answer 2 questions as it did for him to make 2 interceptions and win the game for the Bills a few weeks ago against da bears. I think he definitely is in the right profession. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to play CB. His interview skills will get better over time.
