The NFL combine is winding down but that hasn’t stopped some bizarre moments from transpiring at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Texas cornerback prospect Kris Boyd shared one of the strangest questions asked this weekend.
“One crazy question I can think of was, ‘Do I have both of my testicles?’ ” Boyd told reporters Sunday. “And I was like, ‘Yeah. I don’t know why you got to ask.’ That was one I can think of.”
The question even caught veteran reporters off guard.
I have been to a scouting combine or two — OK, this my 33rd — and I have now heard an entry to the crazy-question question I’ve never heard before — this today from Texas CB Kris Boyd — “Do I have both of my testicles? And I was like yeah, I don’t know why you got to ask.”

Boyd, who benched a position-best 19 reps at the combine, didn’t say which team asked the question.
But, he wasn’t the only one who had to endure head-scratching moments.
Earlier in the busy weekend, Ed Oliver —a top draft prospect out of Houston — shared an … interesting … story.
“In Houston, it’s not uncommon to see a horse walking down the street,” Oliver told reporters Saturday. “I’ve never been a bull guy, but you can sell their semen and make some money.”

North Carolina-Charlotte guard Nate Davis said one team official offered him a handshake at the start of the meeting, but instead, the official punched Davis in the chest.
“He was like, ‘You have a soft chest,’ and I was like ‘OK,’ and we just kept it going,” Davis told reporters, via USA Today. “That was probably the weirdest thing.”
Davis didn’t say which team official punched him. But, he took the punch.
“It’s football, you know,” Davis added. “It’s just a game. It’s serious, but at the same time, nothing personal.”
