…a good solid buzz helps me run a faster 40…

The draft stock of UNC’s Brandon Tate may have taken a hit…literally.

Two sources told that Tate tested positive for marijuana in February at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Tate was one of only two high-profile players (the other was WR Percy Harvin of Florida) to flunk their combine drug tests, the sources said. Fewer than a dozen players tested positive for recreational drugs, one source said.

NFL teams received the drug-test results earlier this week. Players who failed are subject to entry into the NFL's substance-abuse program.

Tate was having a monster season for North Carolina before tearing two knee ligaments midway through his senior campaign. He averaged 23.5 yards on his 16 receptions and was even more dangerous as a punt and kickoff returner. Tate's 397 all-purpose yards against McNeese State set a single-game record at UNC. Tate didn't work out at the Combine while still recovering from his injury (and smoking dope.)
