Louisville OT Mekhi Becton Had Drug Test Flagged At Combine


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Louisville OT Mekhi Becton was among multiple players who had their drug test flagged at the NFL Combine.

Rapoport mentions that teams at the combine were made aware of this.

Becton did not have any failed drug tests in college at Louisville.

Per new CBA rules, Becton goes into Stage 1 for no more than 60 days. After which “he will thereafter assume the same status as Players who have never been referred to the Intervention Program.”

Becton, 21, is considered to be one of the top offensive tackle prospects in this year’s draft class and could end up being a top-10 pick next week. He was a second-team All-American as a junior at Louisville and a first-team All-ACC selection.

Dane Brugler has Becton rated as his No. 11 overall player. 

Lance Zierlein compares him to a Bryant McKinnie.

During his three-year college career at Louisville, Becton appeared in 35 games, making 33 starts between both left and right tackle.
