Multiple sources are reporting that former LSU players Zach Mettenberger and Anthony Johnson both had their drug tests flagged at this year's NFL Combine for either failed or diluted results.

Per Jay Glazer with Fox Sports:

The top prospect on the list was Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, who is projected as a mid first-round selection. Another big name was Louisiana State quarterback Zach Mettenberger. first reported that Mettenberger tested positive for having a diluted urine sample, which would count as a failed test under the NFL's drug program.

Among the other notable players who were listed to NFL teams as having failed Combine drug tests in February were LSU defensive tackle Anthony Johnson, University of Miami tackle Seantrel Henderson, and Florida State linebackers Telvin Smith and Christian Jones.

Mettenberger's agents Joe Linta and Seth Katz told FOX Sports that the diluted sample was caused by extra water his client was drinking on the advice of his doctor. Linta said Mettenberger had begun to suffer from cramping while rehabilitating from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

It says his urine was diluted meaning he drank too much water... Doesn't mean he was on anything at all...

So you can't drink extra water without a test being flagged. Take a hair sample then. Crazy.
