Drug Test List Has Less Than Ten Positives

Some league insiders were bracing for 25 or more names on the list of players who tested positive for marijuana and other prohibited substances at the Scouting Combine.
In the end, the number is in the single digits.
Per a league source, fewer than 10 players tested positive. 
We’re working on getting the names that are on the list and, perhaps more importantly, some of the key names rumored to have tested positive.

    if BJ Raji’s name is not on the list, then he should move back to a top 5 pick, or better yet let him fall to us at #7

    warren sapp tested positive, randy moss admitted to smoking in the off season, shawn merriman got popped for steroids(and made it to the pro bowl the same year after a 4 game suspension) so who really cares.

    Who cares? It’s time folks stop caring about this.

    With the 5th pick the Cleveland Browns select B.J. Raji DT Boston College.

    The Bungles are only going to draft players from that list!!!

    Harvin is the only name confirmed, right? Raji being clean makes the top of the draft more interesting. IMO there are only three of four guys worth trading up for: Sanchez, Raji, maybe Crabtree, and possibly Jason Smith or Monroe if one falls beyond Seattle at the #4.
    Anyone else think it’s funny to see the media being used by all sides this time of year? Hilarious.

    ok, so he’s intelligent enough to stay away from green during the two weeks preceding the draft…good for him.

    I wonder if this was not an attempt to find the leak. Early release of the confidential combine drug test info has been a problem for years. You tell the person, whom you suspect of leaking the info, and no one else and see if that info turns up in the media.
    How do you go from over 25 names on the list to fewer than 10?

    Get the list of wondelric scores. Those that tested postive, knowing there was a test, will be at the bottom of the wonderlic test results.

    now that the real list of players who failed drug test at the combine is out and a majority of the big name prospects who supposedly failed and now it turns out they didnt after weeks of getting dropped on draft boards and\or forgotten completely shouldnt the nfl step in and make the people who posted these false accusations reveal the name of the source who gave them said false information. i mean its only fair to the players who had their names drug through the mud if the person who spread lies is punished especially condsidering the results were suppose to be confidential anyway.

    “We’re working on getting the names that are on the list”
    Didn’t this site make a big stink about names being released, since it is supposed to be 100% confidential? I think this is a little hypocritical and LAME of you PFT. I think the NFL should have to pay these players big money for leaking their names, if they do get leaked. Who didn’t smoke a little weed in college?

    If it weren’t for the publicity, I don’t think the teams would even pay attention to this anymore. Just seems like you have to take it for granted that smoking is pretty common among college atheletes now.

  17. mitchrapp says: Apr 20, 2009 2:02 PM

    .. because PFT has been right on previous lists? Just stop when you’re already 3 steps behind.

    sorry radrntn but Al isn’t going to select Raji even if he is there at #7, Al has taken a DT twice in the last 30yrs in the first and the last time was Darrell Russell in 1997 who ran a 4.8 40 at 320lbs. Raji doesn’t fit into Al’s draft history of loving superior measurables. Odds are he goes for someone like Maclin, Heyward-Bey or Michael Johnson.
