Pot use won’t affect status 

News that three top prospects — Gaines Adams, Calvin Johnson and Amobi Okoye — told teams at the NFL Scouting Combine that they have tried marijuana at least once in their young lives will have no effect on their draft status. Some personnel guys believe up to 90 percent of draft-eligible players have smoked marijuana; others concede at least 50 percent have done so.

Teams accept such experimentation. They become concerned only when there are indications of repeated drug use.
