Defensive end Randy Gregory was a fixture for the Nebraska Cornhuskers defense as he came up with 17.5 sacks in his two collegiate seasons, and he was considered a surefire top-10 pick as a result.

However, his draft stock is expected to fall after failing a drug test at the NFL Combine due to smoking marijuana.
Gregory immediately took personal responsibility for his costly mistake. “At the end of the day, it was my fault. I was being selfish. I was being stubborn. I felt like I could do things my way and it would work, and it didn’t work,” Gregory said to NFL.com.
This was not Gregory’s first positive marijuana test as he failed two drug tests in 2014 before being told that a third strike would cause him to be kicked off the team. He insists that he has not smoked it since December though.
Despite these concerns, Gregory will easily be taken in the first round since he will instantly improve any team’s pass rush.
He will likely be drafted as an outside linebacker by a team with a 3-4 defense due to his weight, which stands at 240 pounds.
