The agent for former Illinois cornerback Vontae Davis today denied a report that Davis and two other players tested positive for marijuana at the NFL combine.
NFLdraftbible.com cited sources in a report Friday that Davis, Florida wide receiver Percy Harvin and Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji all tested positive for marijuana.
"Neither Vontae nor our office has received any notification of any positive test whether for marijuana or any other banned substance," agent Todd France said in a statement. "In addition, we have been informed by several of our NFL contacts that they have not been notified of any drug testing results from the combine."
Davis, a first-team All-Big Ten selection last fall, is projected to be one of the first cornerbacks selected in the draft. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds at the NFL combine and registered a 37.5-inch vertical leap at Illinois' pro day workout.
The younger brother of San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis recorded 78 tackles, three forced fumbles, two interceptions and 10 pass deflections last season for the Illini.
