Mekhi Becton had drug test flagged at NFL Combine
Mekhi Becton was among the players who had a drug test flagged at the NFL Combine in February, according to a report.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport shared the news about Becton on Friday and says teams are aware of the failed test. Rapoport further says Becton did not fail any drug tests while in college at Louisville.
If Mekhi Becton has no further flagged tests or issues in 60 days, “he will thereafter assume the same status as Players who have never been referred to the Intervention Program.” https://t.co/9pyQ3AVDfe

Becton is only in Stage 1 of the NFL intervention program and will only be there for 60 days as long as he has no more flagged tests or issues.
Becton is a 6-foot-7, 369-pound offensive lineman who is expected to be a possible top-10 pick. He was named first-team All-ACC last season and skipped the team’s bowl game to preserve his health ahead of the draft.
