National Football League should require teams to record all Scouting Combine interviews

National Football League should require teams to record all Scouting Combine interviews

NFL teams often ask players ridiculously dumb, irrelevant questions at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Pro Football Talk reports that they "confirmed via a source with knowledge of the situation that the question was asked" to Guice, a potential first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

"Even though I know those things aren't true and they know those things aren't true, they'll still hit you with it to see how you'll react to it", he said.

Running back Derrius Guice told SiriusXM NFL Radio that he was asked the question during the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis last week. Guice retold his Combine interview experience: "Some people really try to get in your head, man". "I go in another room, they'll try to bring up one of my family members or something and tell me, 'Hey, I heard your mom sells herself".

An NFL prospect said in a radio interview Wednesday that one team official asked him about his sexual orientation. "How do you feel about that?'"

Prodding the 20-year-old about his sexuality is just another addition to the NFL's long history of asking distasteful questions. Three years before that, a team asked tight end Nick Kasa if he likes girls. And no matter how many times the National Football League expresses disapproval of questions posed by specific teams to specific players, stories still emerge regarding inappropriate questions. "Any team or employee that inquires about impermissible subjects or makes an employment decision based on such factors is subject to league discipline".

Guice made a decision to declare for the NFL Draft after two years at LSU.
