Former LSU QB Zach Mettenberger and defensive tackle Anthony Johnson are among 10 players who were “identified to NFL teams as either testing positive for drugs or having a diluted sample in February,” reported by Fox Sports.
Mettenberger’s flagged drug test came from a diluted urine sample, and his agents said it was nothing more than too much water in his urine. Mett’s agents attributed the flagged test to him drinking extra water at the advice of his doctor, as he had began to suffer cramping during his rehab for his surgically repaired ACL.
Top FSU defensive tackle first-round prospect Timmy Jernigan was also implicated in the report, along with LSU DT Anthony Johnson, Miami’s Seantrel Henderson and FSU LBs Telvin Smith and Christian Jones.
The NFL’s drug testing policies usually treat a diluted sample as a positive sample.
