Report: For once, there were no failed drug tests at the NFL Combine

Every year, the days leading up to the NFL Draft include a news leak or two that a key prospect failed a drug test at the February Scouting Combine.

But that won’t be happening this year, according to ESPN.

It’s hard to fail a test that you know is coming – it either means you have a real problem or you aren’t very smart – but hundreds of players are tested, so a perfect record is rare.

Last year, University of Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory was the highest-profile case of a positive test (for marijuana), and it sent his draft stock tumbling from a possible top-10 pick to No. 60 by the Cowboys.

This year, when picks start coming off the board Thursday, no player will have to suffer Gregory’s fate.
