NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that Ohio State offensive tackle Mike Adams tested positive for marijuana at the NFL Combine.
While other players have tested positive for marijuana and gone on to have stellar NFL careers, this is yet another character-based issue that will be chalked on to the draft capsule of the Buckeyes offensvie lineman. Per La Canfora, Adams has been “upfront” with teams about the drug test, and he has already completed a counseling program.
The Cleveland Browns have long been linked to a variety of offensive linemen, needing an upgrade at the right tackle position, with one recent mock draft having the team select Adams with the 22nd-overall pick. Once considered to be first-round talent, Adams will be fortunate to see his name called on Thursday evening after he follows a disappointing combine outing with this latest unavoidable bout of news.
