Workout numbers don't tell me squat. I'm not drafting guys to compete in the crossfit games. I'm drafting football players. So the tape of them playing football is what I will use to make my selection.

If that means that every once in a while a stud athlete sneaks past me then fine. The teams that covet athleticism over all else are usually the teams that are consistently picking at the top.
I don't watch film , maybe a youtube video , but for the most part I just guess based on the information I read and watching games . Having said that , I don't get paid to scout but I do ok when I do the TT mocks . Luck plays a huge factor in the NFL or any draft .
