Former Ohio State offensive lineman Mike Adams tested positive for marijuana at the NFL combine in February, according to a Thursday tweet from La Canfora:
Ohio State T Mike Adams, 1st rnd prospect, tested positive for marijuana at combine. Has already completed counseling: bit.ly/JOuaup— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) April 19, 2012
Adams, who was among the players suspended in the wake of the Ohio State tattoo and merchandise scandal that broke in late 2010, has visited the Cleveland Browns.
La Canfora also wrote an article about Adams, claiming that the positive test won't be a death knell to his draft status:
Interested teams have been in close contact with Adams, and have been impressed that he has already completed counseling.
The positive result will make him a moderate risk, and could result in him sliding to the second round, but other players with positive results in years past still have ended up in the first round. Adams has told people he was unaware of the positive result at the time of combine interviews, which is why he did not tell teams then.
...Several teams picking late in the first round and early in the second round are in the market for offensive linemen in this draft.
Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, also projected as a first-round pick, was arrested on marijuana charges in January.
