When it comes to dumb, there’s not much dumber than failing a drug test at the NFL scouting combine. First, everyone knows they’ll be tested. Second, this one-week gathering is the most important pre-draft step most players will take as they prepare for the NFL’s annual player selection meeting.
So what was Georgia linebacker/defensive end Justin Houston thinking?
According to FoxSports.com, “multiple sources” have revealed that Houston — along with Iowa defensive lineman Christian Ballard — tested positive for marijuana at the February combine.
At the very least, this has to have sent up some red flags for NFL executives. Either Houston is so in love with the sticky-icky that he can’t stop smoking it — even in the run-up to the combine — or he’s so dumb he didn’t realize toking weed would show up on his test.
Houston has been viewed by most mock-draft gurus as a late-first or second-round pick in this week’s draft. We’ll see if the report of the failed drug test changes those predictions.
