I mean, we are all chopping at the bit to get one of these guys to fill a hole on our team. So doing without them for 4 games could easily make the difference between making the playoffs or not. Now let's take it even further. They get tapped a second time and we lose them for the year. They still don't learn their lesson?......we've got Ricky Williams. Do you think the Dolphins care about his marijuana use?

I'm just saying, whether you think it's right or wrong doesn't really matter. The real concern for teams should be making sure their "use" isn't a continued use and that it was just a college thing, or a frat thing, or some other immature reason that is long past. If it's an addiction, then you're talking about spending a high draft pick and millions of cap room on a player that can't take the field when he fails a drug test.

no we really shouldnt

Re: Johnson,Adams, & Okoye admit to lighting up in combine interviews.

Let's make it clear they admitted to having used it, they didn't admit to being active users.

There's a big difference.

If they are tested, which I'm sure they probably are at some point prior to the draft and they are clean, no harm, no foul.

At least they were honest.

The article dosent say...these guys smoke pot. THe article said, they have admitted to smoking pot.

I'm 21 years old, I dont smoke pot....I have in the past though. Thats all these guys are admitting too is doing it in the past. This really isnt an issue at all.

"People need to stop thinking that smoking pot is so darn bad. Stop generalizing and acting out of fear. It's not as bad as people think it is."

Thank you for those wise words, I will file them under the same heading as...

Re: Johnson,Adams, & Okoye admit to lighting up in combine interviews.

Pat Kirwan said that this will do nothing to their draft stock. Says that it's seen as a sign of maturity that they fessed up to it.

Re: Johnson,Adams, & Okoye admit to lighting up in combine interviews.

Who hasn't tried it at least once. These guys in the NFL go to clubs and parties all the time. I'm sure Portis, Moss, Cooley, and Gibbs is toking one up at Redskins park right now. This will not affect these kids especially with all the drama in the NFL right now. People are doing alot worse things that are criminal and getting away with it.

Very good point. It is illegal like it or not, that also applies in the NFL.
With these personal conduct issues or the cracking down on them, you can bet organization's that still have a few brain cells left that will be paying big dollars for these picks, will be looking deeper into these type issues.
