What do you talk about when you've run out of mock drafts and potential trade to discuss?  Why, the SHOCKING confession by potential top 10 draft choices that they smoked marijuana while in college.

From New Era Scouting:

We've learned through a former NFL Pro Personnel Director that three top 10 players admitted to marijuana use at the NFL Combine. The three alleged players are Calvin Johnson, Amobi Okoye and Gaines Adams. We've also been told that there is wide speculation that Dwayne Jarrett may have admitted to such, but has not been verified.

Guess we now know what Okoye is doing while his 21+ teammates are out drinking.

The only reason I find this interesting is because as I recall, Warren Sapp's draft stock slipped because of rumored marijuana use.  Now players confess and look like honest guys I guess?  As far as I'm concerned, as long as it doesn't affect their play on the field so be it.  This could be turned into a political debate but that's not what we're here for.  This story has gained some steam in both main stream and independent media and provides some amusement for the afternoon.
