Defensive end prospect Shane Ray was about to enter the 2015 NFL Draft as a blue-chip prospect who was in consideration to be drafted in the top 10, but those dreams were quickly shattered.
Ray was busted Monday morning for possession of pot after he was pulled over by the police for not driving in the right lane on the highway he was on.
Due to his brush with the law, Ray has entered a drug abuse program that is run by the NFL. He is currently in Phase 1 of the program, which is the behavioral part of it.
Ray picked the worst time possible to be cited for marijuana possession, as the draft will start on Thursday.
There is a legitimate chance that Ray may fall out of the first round, as he has also battled a foot injury leading up to his big day.
Ray has since apologized for his actions though, vowing to make better decisions in the future.
The defensive end also tested positive for marijuana when he played at Missouri, but his talent alone will be intriguing for NFL teams as he came up with 14.5 sacks in his final collegiate season. This ranked third in the nation for the 2014 season.
