Former NFL Player Asked ‘Boxers Or Briefs,’ Other Ridiculous Questions At Combine (GIFs)

It’s not exactly breaking news that some prospects are asked puzzling and inappropriate questions at the NFL Scouting Combine. Just ask Dez Bryant. But it appears this is more a systemic issue than just isolated incidents.

This year’s combine kicks off Wednesday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, and hopefully none of the players will be asked the questions former defensive end Austen Lane had to deal with before the 2010 draft. Lane sent out a series of tweets Tuesday detailing those questions, and he added in some humor with highly appropriate GIFs.

We’re not scouts, but we’re pretty sure those questions won’t help teams find the next Tom Brady.
