Derrius Guice reveals some of the bizarre questions he was asked at NFL Combine.
Former LSU running back Derrius Guice took part in several interviews earlier this week as part of the NFL combine and he revealed some of the shocking questions he fielded from a few unnamed NFL teams.
During an interview on the SiriusXM NFL show "Late Hits," Guice described how one team asked him if he likes men, and how another team asked if his mom "sells herself." That said, the 20-year old running back says the interview process went exactly how everyone told him it would, noting how exhausting it was to be watched and tested the entire time.
‘’It was pretty crazy," Guice said during the Late Hits interview, per USA Today. "Some people are really trying to get in your head and test your reaction. ... I go in one room, and a team will ask me do I like men, just to see my reaction. 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. How do you feel about that?’"
Guice isn't the only player to report the bizarre questioning of the NFL Combine interviews. A couple of years ago New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple said the Atlanta Falcons asked him if he liked men. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was reportedly asked by the Miami Dolphins back in 2010 if his mom was a prostitute.
Guice, who is expected to be a first round pick, did not reveal which teams asked him the questions, but the NFL has released a statement saying they're looking into the matter.
"A question such as that is completely inappropriate and wholly contrary to league workplace policies," the NFL said in a statement Thursday. "The NFL and its clubs are committed to providing equal employment opportunities to all employees in a manner that is consistent with our commitment to diversity and inclusion, state and federal laws and the CBA. We are looking into the matter."
Over the past two seasons at LSU, Guice rushed for 2,638 yards and 26 touchdowns, according to ESPN. Mel Kiper Jr. has him going 20th overall to the Detroit Lions in the upcoming NFL Draft.
