Sources: Henderson failed drug test
NFL teams were notified late last week that Miami Hurricanes right tackle Seantrel Henderson tested positive at the scouting combine for smoking marijuana, multiple league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Henderson, who has elite abilities, already had been removed from some draft boards due to the fact that he revealed at the Senior Bowl that suspensions at Miami were related to failed drug tests.
"I was partying a little bit too much at times," Henderson told The Miami Herald in January before the Senior Bowl when asked to explain his three suspensions at UM. "I had got into trouble a couple of times for marijuana. I just put all that behind me."
He also cut short his UM pro day workout for scouts in April, with Henderson's agent saying that he was dehydrated and felt sick.
Other players in the past have tested positive at the combine and gone on to have successful NFL careers.
Henderson started in only 26 of the 43 games he played with the Hurricanes.
