 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Former Wisconsin linebacker Zack Baun has notified all NFL teams that he had a diluted urine sample at the NFL combine, a red flag as it pertains to league drug-testing mechanisms, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. Although a diluted sample doesn't prove the presence of a banned substance, it typically constitutes a failed test. Per Schefter's sources, Baun attributed the finding to drinking too much water for weigh-in purposes, attempting to drive up his weight to impress talent evaluators. Baun is listed at 6 foot 2 and 238 pounds. Under the NFL's previous collective bargaining agreement, the diluted sample would have counted as a strike against Baun, but Schefter noted it will not under the newly approved CBA.

He tweeted teams thus don't believe it will impact Baun's draft status. Under the old CBA, a positive first test meant a referral to the league's substance abuse program, and a second violation would have resulted in a fine of two game checks. The new CBA puts weight on treatment more than punishment. Baun is expected to be selected late in the first round or early in the second in the draft April 23. The former Brown Deer High School standout finished with 19½ tackles for lost yardage last year and 12½ sacks. He was second-team All-American according to the Associated Press and was first-team all-Big Ten. - Journal Sentinel
