Gregory's Regret

Randy Gregory - who was expected to be a top 10 pick in the NFL draft when the draft eventually comes around at the end of April - will not be selected that high any more.

"Am I worried? Yeah, I'm worried," he said. "At the same time, I'm confident. I know I'm going to be all right in the end."

This will definitely not be a help to how high he gets drafted, that's for certain. Gregory has a history with marijuana and officially tested positive for the drug twice during his time in college, whilst admitting there were points in his Cornhuskers career where he would smoke every day.
