Last week it was announced that Reuben Foster, whom many consider to be a Top 10 prospect, tested positive at the NFL Combine leaving analysts to assume that he would experience a drop in the draft.
Now, Michigan prospect Jabrill Peppers is experiencing the same dilemma.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, The NFL notified teams that Peppers tested positive for a diluted sample at the NFL Combine.
According to a CAA spokesman, who works for agency that represents Jabril Peppers:
“Peppers went to the combine. He was sick after flying there from San Diego. He has a history of cramping. Peppers was being pumped with fluids, drinking 8-10 bottles of water before he went to bed, because he was the first guy to work out two days for the LBs and DBs. He had to go through that first day, come back on second day, and that was the fear. So Peppers was pounding water and under the weather. He never failed a drug test in his life, nor tested positive before for any substance.”
Peppers may be facing the same potential slip in the draft that many are projecting that Foster will see.
