Virtually every year during the NFL Draft process, a few high-profile prospects fail drug tests from February’s combine. That is, until 2016. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, not one player tested positive at this year’s event in Indianapolis, something that is almost unprecedented.
For the first time in recent memory, NFL has notified all 32 teams that no player tested positive at February combine, per league sources.

No matter where you fall on the subject of recreational drug use, most would hope that a player can avoid failing a test that they know is coming at the combine. Almost every draft class has a few players fail and see their stock suffer, so congratulations to the class of 2016 for bucking that trend.
