It’s no secret that NFL teams ask some really wild questions of prospects ahead of the draft. Jalen Hurts, speaking with Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report, shared one that’s pretty ridiculous.
Hurts told Freeman that one team rep asked him if his mom had anything bad to say about him.
These questions are designed to get a rise out of these young men. Teams want to see how they’ll react, more than anything else. Given the type of interactions that transpire between players and the media, and on social media with fans, it makes sense to a certain degree.
Still, how’s a player supposed to feel about something like that? As Freeman noted, NFL teams really are ruthless.
