Update 4/3/09 6:24 PM [LaTimes]: Pete Carroll is denying the rumors involving the USC players:
"These rumors are absolutely false," Carroll said. "If they were found positive, Clay and Cush would have been notified three weeks ago, which they weren't and all of the NFL teams would have been notified too, which they weren't."
Note: This information is, as of right now, completely unconfirmed by [MTD]....waiting to hear back from some folks, but we'll see.
NFLDraftBible.com reports that Southern California linebackers Brian Cushing and Clay Matthews III tested positive for steroids at the NFL Scouting Combine in March.
The site is also reporting that B.J. Raji of Boston College, Vontae Davis of Illinois, Percy Harvin of Florida and Jose Martinez of UTEP tested positive for marijuana at the combine.
More on these accusations as they develop today.
This source is from our SBNation blog, MTD. That sucks because we selected Cushing in the mock draft, although there was no way of us knowing it, obviously. So, looking back at the draft board, who should we have taken?
Who should the Skins select with the #13 pick based on who is on the board? (Note: All the DEs and OL are gone)
