Default NFL | Okoye admits to marijuana use

NFL | Okoye admits to marijuana use
Wed, 18 Apr 2007 17:04:07 -0700
Nolan Nawrocki, of ProFootballWeekly.com, reports Louisville DT Amobi Okoye admitted during his NFL Combine interview that he has used marijuana, according to multiple sources who have watched the interview. Some teams who are aware of his admission have said they do not think it will affect his draft stock. Others are concerned about his work ethic, maturity level and fluctuations in weight.


I personally was hoping to get a shot at drafting him, and this gives us are chance but since he admits to it, I bet the Rooney's red flag him and not even give him a look.

There is also others who admit to using also;

NFL | G. Adams admits to marijuana use
Wed, 18 Apr 2007 17:03:34 -0700

Nolan Nawrocki, of ProFootballWeekly.com, reports Clemson DE Gaines Adams admitted during his NFL Combine interview that he has used marijuana, according to multiple sources who have watched the interview. " It should scare (teams), especially when you see how laid-back (Adams) is in his play," said one team official. "No one disputes the great physical ability. What is disputed is how passionate he is and how physical he is. Physically, from an athletic standpoint, he has all the tools. He is the No. 1 pass rusher in the draft, and I don't think many people would argue with that."

a college student blazing an "L"???

what is amazing is that these 3 actually admitted it.

i doubt any of these 3 drop out of the top 10. if so we better jump on any of them and send that card up to the commish in 10 seconds.

one of our esteemed posters (whos word i look at as good as gold) recalls mean joe green firing up the ganj' in a jazz club, back in the day. shit happens (but these players shoulda been coached to "deny everything".

this is a suprising story with 3 such high profile players. i think this is what caused l. white to drop and it still seems the twinkie munchies are getting the best of him. however it is also what caused warren sapp to drop. whether or not he still fires up, we dont know. all we know is hes a sb champ.

This might get Okoye to drop like white did, but I doubt out of the 1st round. Work ethic, maturity level and fluctuations in weight. I doubt Johnson and Gains drop any.

Wasn't the Warren Sapp thing just unsubstaniated rumors?

I thought they caused him to drop down to the middle of the 1st round, but then it turned out he hadn't admitted to smoking weed at all.

Good thing they are being honest before even entering a team, that shows class. I agree, their draft stock won't drop.

University of Miami to Review Drug-Testing Policy for Athletes


The University of Miami said it would review its drug-testing policy for athletes in the wake of reports that a former football player had failed seven drug tests while at the institution.

ESPN reported last month that the player, Warren Sapp, had failed six tests for marijuana and one for cocaine. The news, which ESPN said came from background checks conducted by the National Football League, broke shortly before the N.F.L. draft last month. Mr. Sapp, who was picked by Tampa Bay in the first round, has denied using cocaine. His agent has said that Mr. Sapp admits to testing positive for marijuana once during his freshman year and once at an N.F.L. workout in February.
its the coke use that was unsubstanciated. sapp likes his wacky tobaccy though
