Jabrill Peppers Tests Positive For A Dilute Sample At Combine
April 24 / Grace Pfeifle / SportsGrid
Michigan's Jabrill Peppers has tested positive for a dilute sample at the combine. NFL teams have been informed of this update. The agency that represents Peppers has come out with a statement, stating that Peppers has a history of severe cramping. According to his agency, he was sick after flying from San Diego to Indianapolis and drank 8-10 bottles of water to try and combat illness and cramping. The agency said:
"He never failed a drug test in his life, not tested positive for any substance."
Jabrill Peppers was the first prospect to run for both defensive backs and linebackers. There was already questions floating around about what exact position Peppers would play for the NFL. The diluted sample doesn't help when it comes to where he gets drafted this year. Apparently before the combine, Peppers came down with what he believes to have been food poisoning. He was vomiting, suffering from diarrhea, and cramping. He apparently declined IVs, and received medication from a doctor. Therefore, he attempted to rehydrate which made the test come out positive.
Reuben Foster, a linebacker for Alabama, is the only other athlete to test positive for a dilute sample at the combine, so far.
