Expect Chargers to still consider Dwyer


The positive drug test by Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer will surely catch the attention of the San Diego Chargers.

Dwyer is one of several running backs the Chargers are seriously considering drafting this week. He has talked to the Chargers and he seems to fit their system well.

I wouldn’t expect the positive test to alter San Diego’s (or any other team’s interest in Dwyer). He tested positive for amphetamines. Dwyer's agent said teams were aware of his client's medical history. Dwyer told ESPN the medication is for an attention deficit disorder. The NFL calls Dwyer's situation a "therapeutic use exemption.”

If teams feel comfortable about Dwyer, this positive test will likely be understood. I expect him to stay on San Diego’s draft board.
