The NFL Combine can be a weird place. While some teams keep it professional, others ask off-the-wall questions of the potential NFLplayers and can make things uncomfortable. That happened to Jordan Morgan, anoffensive lineman fromDivision IIKutztown University.
But Morgan wasn't asked a strange question, instead he was required to perform an odd task: stare.
"The strangest thing I had asked of me at the Combine was how long I could have my eyes open in a staring contest. I thought it was weird, but it's one of those things you don't question on the spot," he told Penn Live. "I didn't blink at all. He told me I could stare at anything. I just focused on a water bottle. I don't know how long it was, but it was pretty long. My eyes were fogging up. I couldn't see after. He was just like, 'I got what I need. You can stop now.'"
What does this have to do with anything? Who knows. But it's not the first time a team has demandedsomething strange from aprospect, and it won't be the last. In the same Combine, the Browns used a deck of cards to test a player. Last year, former player Austen Lane revealedthat a team asked him,"If you could kill someone and not get caught, would you?"
Teams may just be asking these things to catch a player off-guard, but maybe there's a method to their madness.
