Austen Lane (r.), with the Jaguars in 2010, reveals some of the questions he was asked during his NFL Scoutiing Combine. 

The NFL Scouting Combine will be held in Indianapolis this weekend, which means countless hours of analyzing 40 times and Wonderlic scores.

It also means that NFL scouts will be asking players strange, ridiculous questions that have nothing to do with football.

On Tuesday, former NFL defensive end Austen Lane shed some light on the absurdity of some of the questions he was asked during his combine.

Lane tweeted out a few of these questions and attached a GIF to each one summing up his reaction.

They included:

“When a scout at the combine asked me… “If you could kill someone and not get caught, would you?”

When a scout at the combine asked me if I thought my mother was attractive.

When a coach made the statement during my combine interview… “I see you have dreads, you smoke weed don’t you?”

When a scout asked me at the combine if I had to murder someone: Would I use a gun or a knife?

When a scout at the combine asked me “boxers or briefs”.

Apparently, Dez Bryant being asked if his mother is a prostitute was only the tip of the iceberg.
