ProFootballTalk.com is posting that the charges for marijuana possession against one of our potential draft picks Dre Kirkpatrick were dropped.
Based on this story, from the Tuscaloosa News, it sounds like Kirkpatrick’s friend, Chris Rogers, accepted blame for the presence of marijuana in a vehicle rented by Rogers. Rogers, a former teammate of Kirkpatrick’s at Alabama, was also arrested.
Per the incident report, Rogers admitted to police that he purchased the marijuana. Kirkpatrick admitted he was in the vehicle when the purchase was made, but claimed he did not specifically know of the purchase at that time.
If they were a concern to some before, they probably aren't now. I'm pretty sure we weren't going to look into it very much but I'm sure Dre can expect some questions about it during the combine interviews.
