NFL prospect says he was asked if he’d use knife or gun to kill someone

Jalen Mills was shocked by one question he got during the Draft process.

Man, NFL prospects get some loaded questions and this one might just be the worst.

LSU safety Jalen Mills recounted an utterly awful question he was asked during the interview process in a video for CBS.

Asked to give an example of strange questions he had faced from teams, Mills let fly with a doozy.

"If you wanted to kill a guy, would you kill him with a gun or a knife?"

Seriously? Who asks that of a kid? What is the right answer even supposed to be?

Mills was pretty jovial recounting the story, and he says the gun was the right answer, because it was quick and efficient, whereas the team that asked thought using a knife signified "that now you are killing for fun, because you have to continuously stab someone."

It’s probaby not as bad in a legal sense as teams asking about sexual orientation, but it’s definitely inappropriate.
