The most exciting three days of the NFL offseason are quickly approaching, with the NFL draft less than three weeks away. We’ve made it through the combine, player pro days, and individual workouts. During all the excitement, though, one part of the process can leave potential draftees scratching their heads: The pre-draft interviews each team conducts with draft hopefuls can sometimes take a turn down some strangely inappropriate avenues.
I understand the type of investment these organizations make in their players, especially those selected in the first round. But some of these scouts, coaches, and team executives can take their line of questioning too far. Some of the questions these young men are asked can range from overly personal to outright unacceptable in a supposed “professional” setting.
