The 2018 NFL draft went down last week and there were a few significant storylines, including several top prospects that slid in the draft for various reasons. Ahead of the draft, it was reported that former Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway reportedly provided a diluted sample at the NFL Combine.
Callaway initially claimed he was “over-hydrated” which led to the diluted sample, but then admitted to smoking marijuana two weeks before the event. That news caused him to slide significantly in the draft.
Considered a first-round talent, Callaway was selected in the fourth round by the Cleveland Browns.
He wasn’t the only prospect to slide due to a failed drug test. Matt Miller of Bleacher Report revealed Texas corner Holton Hill also failed his test.
The NFL Scouting Combine is every year in late February and yet each season we have players fail the mandatory drug test in Indianapolis. NFL sources told me Holton Hill (Texas), Desmond Harrison (West Georgia) and Antonio Callaway (Florida) all failed the test. Each dropped in the draft because of it.
Hill’s fall was the worst on the day. Once considered to be a fringe first, solid second-round talent, the former Texas star went undrafted as a result of the failed test.
Hill signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Minnesota Vikings. If he can stay out of trouble, Hill is easily one of the most-talented players coming out of college this year, and could end up being the steal of the draft.
Desmond Harrison, meanwhile, signed with the Cleveland Browns after going undrafted. Clearly John Dorsey isn’t worried about Harrison and Callaway allegedly failing their drug tests.
