Considered by many the top receiver in the upcoming draft, California Bears stud Keenan Allen may have just seen his NFL stock take a dramatic hit after reportedly failing a drugs test at the NFL Combine.

Considered to be a target of the New York Jets at number nine in next weeks draft, Keenan Allen was set to be named the first receiver to betaken in 2013.
However that is likely to change after reports have suggested that the stand out player at California failed a drug test at the NFL Combine, something that will immediately put teams off when picking someone in the first round.
Talent is completely thrown out the window when off-field concerns come into play, especially when they are drug related and discovered at a time when rookies should be extra cautious in their personal decisions regarding drugs and performance.
It is not clear what the substance was or how long it had been in his system for, but the damage has already been done.
How far he will fall is also unclear right now, however it will still be a surprise if he is still on the board at the start of the third round, as one team will take a chance on the player due to his freakish athletic ability to play the position.
