NFL Will Now Fine Teams And Take Away Draft Picks For Asking Weird Question At Combine
© Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports
This NFL is changes things up at the combine. Goodbye to the classic Wonderlic Test. And hello to fines and taking away draft picks for asking draft prospects weird-ass questions. Per AP...
quote:

The NFL has issued a warning to teams that they could lose a draft pick and face significant fines if club representatives conduct themselves unprofessionally in interviews with draft prospects.

In a memo obtained by the AP that was sent to clubs on Wednesday, the league said a team would forfeit a draft pick between the first and fourth round and be fined a minimum of $150,000 if it’s determined a club representative displayed conduct that is “disrespectful, inappropriate, or unprofessional” during an interview. Fines and/or suspensions of individual club employees also could be imposed, according to the memo. “We aim for dignity, respect and professionalism,” league executive Troy Vincent told the AP. “It’s that simple.”

The league also plans to eliminate the Wonderlic test for prospective players, and it is revising some of its scouting combine drills to better simulate game-related movement. Wide receivers and tight ends will run crossing routes instead of wheel routes, and running backs will run option routes instead of corner and post-corner routes.

The NFL has been embarrassed by all of the single digit scores.

Wonderlic test = Racist…. So duh it totally needed to go. Now I’m waiting for the NCAA to do away with those racist grade requirements!

They were probably asking those question to gauge their temperament, and to see how thin their skin was.

Ireland asked Dez what his father did for a living, Dez said he's a pimp. Ireland asked Dez, what his mother did for a living, Dez said works for dad. Ireland asked Dez, is your mother a prostitue?

Didn't they ask Guice if his mother being a whore effected his life, when young? And how much for a handie, or some other rude shite.
