Amid all the all-encompassing insanity of the lifted lockout, here's some potentially damaging news for a pair of prospects, just 48 hours before the NFL Draft: Georgia LB/DL Justin Houston and Iowa DL Christian Ballard have reportedly tested positive for marijuana.
That's according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports (whose tweet somehow almost got lost in the maw that is the legal discussion regarding the lockout), who notes that the pair are "2 highly-graded defensive draft kids."
Neither of the players' respective agents returned comments to Glazer, but expect them to be asked plenty of questions over the next few days, particularly as teams decide whether or not they want to risk drafting either of the players with the reported news floating out there.
But considering that the failed tests reportedly occurred at the NFL combine, if the reports are true, then teams are already aware of the issues at hand.
