B.J. Raji FAILS Drug Test at NFL Combine

Gil BecerraCorrespondent IApril 2, 2009

The actual drug he tested positive for has not been mentioned, but the fact is that BJ Raji, FAILED a drug test at the NFL Combine according to a SI.com article and a report from ESPN.com.

One of the guys I've been wanting the Raiders to shoot for has run into what I'd call a 'Warren Sapp' or 'Randy Moss' type problem prior to the draft. Warren Sapp ended up slipping to the 12th Pick and had a outstanding career.

Randy Moss fell all the way down to the Vikings as the 22nd Pick. Those guys produced their whole time in college and still feel in the draft.

BJ Raji, missed the 2007 Season due to Academic Issues. Hum...That's interesting because he was reported to have tested positive for marijuanawhile playing at BC. He came back strong enough in 2008 to be the top DT prospect out this year.

This has got to be a concern at the No. 7 pick for us Raider fans that wanted him. It's one thing to be dirty during college but for him to fail a test at the Combine is stupid of him.

This might be me panicking but I'd feel a lot better trying to get Orakpo/Carbtree with the No. 7 pick and crossing our fingers to get Moala/Brace in the second Round.
