Several NFL Draft prospects failed drug tests at the Combine, according to reports

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

A rather large group of NFL Draft prospects have been cited as failing drugs tests at this year's NFL Combine in February.

The SEC and ACC have been well-represented in the NFL Draft for decades, but the two power conferences are now getting popular on another list. Two LSU Tigers and three FSU Seminoles either failed or had diluted drug tests in February's NFL Combine, according to multiple reports.

LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger "generated a dilute urine sample" to testers at the Combine, according to Pro Football Talk.  The quarterback claims the sample's dilution had to do with his ACL rehab. Mettenberger's teammate, defensive lineman Anthony Johnson, also failed a drug test, per FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. More than 10 players failed drug tests in Indianapolis, according to Glazer.

Of that group of players, three FSU Seminoles reportedly failed their tests. Glazer reports that FSU defensive tackle and potential first round pick Timmy Jernigan was among the group. His teammates, linebackers Telvin Smith and Christian Jones, also failed their tests. Prior to the report, the Eagles were linked to Jones and Smith, but it is unclear how this will impact their draft standing with the team or league.

Miami offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson also failed his drug test at the Combine, according to ESPN. Henderson was rumored to have been taken off the Eagles draft board back in January.
