IFWT_Randy Gregory Combine

Randy Gregory is a standout defensive end from Nebraska and easily one of the top defensive prospects in this year’s draft class.  In fact, Gregory even believes he’s worthy of the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.  Well he seriously hurt those chances by failing a drug test at the NFL Combine.

In an interview with Kim Jones of the NFL Network, Gregory admitted that he tested positive for marijuana at the event in late February in Indianapolis.

“I blame myself,” Gregory said. “And I know it sounds cliché, but there’s really no one else I can blame.”

The combine has set dates. All the participants know when it is. And yet, somehow players still occasionally fail the drug tests they know await them in Indy.

Gregory says he hasn’t smoked marijuana since December and yet still tested positive because of how high his THC levels were.  That scenario is HIGHLY unlikely.

Now Gregory will be in the league’s drug system, which means he’ll be tested for recreational drugs more frequently and will be much closer to a potential suspension in the future.

It could also have an effect on how early Gregory is drafted next month.
