Forecasted to first running backs selected in the 2018 NFL draft, former LSU standout Derrius Guice stated he was asked uncomfortable questions by NFL teams during interview sessions at this months combine, during a SiriusXM radio interview (h/t The Guardian.)

Guice would not tell which team had asked him the unprofessional questions. However, Pro Football Talk reports confirmation from an unnamed source that the player had actually been asked about his sexuality.

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, theyll 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 said he wasnt surprised by the questions. "It went exactly how everyone told me it would be," he said. "Its exhausting. It was a great experience. Youre being watched and tested the whole time."

This isn't the first or even second instance. The NFL reprimanded teams for asking about sexuality as recent as two years ago. The Atlanta Falcons were admonished for infamously asking cornerback Eli Apple if he “liked men in 2016.
