NEW YORK (AP) - Former Boston College lineman B.J. Raji, who is
considered the top defensive tackle eligible for this month's NFL draft, reportedly failed a drug test at the NFL combine.
The report, which did not identify the drug, was published on SI.com and attributed to unidentified NFL team sources. The Web site reported that Raji's name will be on a list of players who tested positive.
Raji missed the 2007 college season with academic problems. SI.com reported that NFL scouts had been told that Raji also tested positive for marijuana during his time at BC.
