Mike Adams' time at Ohio State was anything but a straight path. The star offensive tackle was suspended for the first five games of his senior year, and it seems like Adams has found himself in more trouble.

According to Jason La Canfora of NFL.com, Mike Adams tested positive for Marijuana at this year's NFL combine.

The former Buckeye was projected as a mid-to-late first-round draft pick, but one has to believe that this unfortunate news may negatively affect his draft stock.

Adams is generally viewed as a "good kid" among NFL scouts, so the positive test is not necessarily a death sentence, but it definitely doesn't help his cause.

Combine Adams' mediocre performance at the NFL combine with his "questionable" character, and teams that may have considered the former Buckeye could easily pass up on him now.

La Canfora believes Adams may not slip too far, and could be considered "a moderate risk" now, but considering how truly valuable first-round draft picks are in the NFL, teams may not even want to take a "moderate risk."
