One day away from the 2012 NFL Draft, add a pair of names to the list of players who've made significant mistakes over the past couple weeks. Former Arizona St. Sun Devils linebacker Vontaze Burfict and Virginia Tech Hokies cornerback Jayron Hosley join Ohio St. Buckeyes tackle Mike Adams in failing drug tests, Jay Glazer reports:
NFL teams were informed this week of 2 more players of note who have flunked drug tests: ASU LB Vontaze Burfict and Va Tech CB JayRon Hosley— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) April 25, 2012
Burfict was once projected as a first-round selection, but an underwhelming 2011 season marred with discipline issues both on and off the field and a disastrous Combine have some wondering whether he'll even be drafted. This sort of thing won't help. Hosley stands a better chance of recovering, as he's projected to go in the second or third and doesn't have a track record as damaged as Burfict's.
