Former USC running back LenDale White, whose draft stock has been dropping because of poor workouts and an injury, fell to the 45th overall pick, where he was selected by the Tennesee Titans on Saturday.
White's stock might have fallen in part because he tested positive during an NFL drug test, the Los Angeles Daily News reported Saturday, citing several unnamed sources.
White said the situation has been "addressed," the Daily News reported. "(The NFL) ain't worried about it," the running back said Friday, the newspaper reported.
White tested positive at the Indianapolis combine in February, the newspaper reported, citing several unnamed sources.
This news comes on the heels of White's disappointing pro day workout, when he weighed 244 pounds, bench-pressed 225 pounds only 15 times and did not run the 40 because of a hamstring injury.
White also has been unable to work out for teams individually because of his hamstring tear.
White had originally been projected as a top-10 pick.
