Raji failed combine drug test.  Apparently tested positive for marijuana in college, and missed 2007 for academics. 

Obviously won't fall to 32.  Teams that let relatively minor drug issues sway them will remember Warren Sapp and Randy Moss dropping down the boards.  But the academic issue, confirmed by the fact that he's not got enough going on upstairs to realize he'd be tested at the combine, may be the bigger problem.

Won't affect the Steelers really, just be interesting to see where he ends up.

PFT citing another rumor site (so take it FWIW) that it's the tit of the icebird.

Heh, how dumb do you have to be to cost yourself millions of dollars by testing positive for anything? It's not like it's some surprise that they are going to test for pot and roids. I mean the guys are obviously still going to be drafted but every draft slot you drop costs you money. IS it really that hard to quit for 2 weeks to get your piss clean?

At least wait until you've signed your rookie contract before you get caught in your SUV with multiple blunts and such.

I doubt he falls to us, but I'd have to seriously think about taking him despite the weed and academics.  He's one big dude.

Don't think any of the USC OLBs would fit our system.

I know we were interested in Vontae Davis.  That's one to watch.

Percy Harvin doesn't interest me.  Too often banged up, a jack of all trades but master of none (Reggie Bush?).
