Former NFL player reveals weird combine questions

INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Do you think your mom is attractive?

Austen Lane, who was drafted in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft, was asked that question and others, by scouts at the 2010 NFL combine.

Lane, 28, tweeted a series of the questions he was asked six years ago, as a new class of college studs shows off its skills in Indianapolis.

After being selected with the No. 153 pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars, Lane moved on to Detroit and then Chicago, before retiring. The 6-foot, 6-inch defensive end out of Murray St. registered 46 tackles, three sacks, and a forced fumble, in 30 career games.

Lane's Tuesday tweeting spree began with a tweet, which read: "When a scout at the combine asked me... "If you could kill someone and not get caught, would you?"

He continues with sample questions like: "I see you have dreads, you smoke weed don't you?" And he says he was asked: "if I had to murder someone: Would I use a gun or a knife?"

The last question he shares is: "boxers or briefs."

The Bears released Lane last May, but the quirky questions should still come flying from scouts.
