2 instant starters. Both are playmakers and add "juice" as VJ said.

Eh, I'm ok with occasionally taking a player with some off field issues if the talent is too good to pass up, but if you make it a habit, you can turn into the Bengals pretty quickly.

IDK, glad I am not a GM.

I think if he is a guy they have on their board and he close I would have to go up and get him. We could use an ILB who can start day 1 and cover some of the big body TE's we have to face in the AFC and we need the run support help.

I think the dilution sample is a plausible. I had the same thing happen to me some 20 years ago when I started a new job. It was my 1st piss test and I drank a lot of water before hand and had to go back and retake it. I could see a young guy being sick drinking a lot of water, not sure how often they test kids in college if at all.

Seems like the incident at the combine wasn't really an incident at all and is a non-factor now.

After this team has shown they could care less about off field problems, there's no reason he's not taken at 20.

I disagree with Lombardi I think the Raiders would take him at there pick If he falls that far.

They test far more in college than they do the NFL; at least in my experience in college. We had team testing every fall and spring and then random NCAA and team testing throughout the season. I guess the team testing could vary based on the program.

IIRC the NFL only tests once unless a player is already in the program for failing.

Isn't he entering the league now w one strike and subject to random testing? I mean this is the guy who has had some strange moments the last few weeks right, unless I am mixing him up w some other high profilers?
