The NFL combine began Tuesday in Indianapolis with workouts and will last through Monday, Feb. 29th. We’ll see all the physical tests live on television, like the 40 yard dash, broad jump, and vertical, but very rarely do we hear about the one-on-one interviews between pro prospects and the people scouting them.
Thanks to former 5-year veteran defensive end Austen Lane, we now have some insight into the type of questions that are asked at the combine.
Stories like these aren’t made public very often, but we do remember former Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland asking Dez Bryant about whether or not his mother was a prostitute. It will be interesting to see if other players shine light on the interview process at the combine while it’s relevant.
Lane was drafted in the 5th round out of Murray State in 2010. He played for the Jaguars, Chiefs, Lions and Bears during his time in the NFL, but many remember his “workout plan of greatness” that he tweeted out during the 2012 offseason the most.
