NFL Hopeful Claims Team Asked Him To Do A Staring Contest During Interview

The NFL Draft prospect claims an NFL team wanted to see him do a staring contest.

Being good at staring contests is apparently a big plus if you're an NFL Draft prospect.

Jordan Morgan, an offensive lineman out of Division II Kutztown University, claims one team forced him to do a staring contest during an interview.

Seriously.

From PennLive.com:

"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.'"

There are a bunch of stories of weird questions asked by NFL teams during draft interviews, but this request has to be close to the top of that list.

Morgan is ranked as the No. 8 offensive guard in the 2017 NFL Draft class by Bleacher Report's Matt Miller.
