Michigan's Jabrill Peppers has tested positive for a dilute sample at the scouting combine, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The ESPN article says Peppers drank several bottles of water on the way to the combine:

A source told ESPN's Schefter that Peppers, who has a history of cramping, was ill after flying to Indianapolis from San Diego, so he drank eight to 10 bottles of water as he was the first athlete to run for both the linebackers and defensive backs.

Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster also tested positive for a dilute sample at the combine.

In ESPN's latest three-round mock draft, Mel Kiper projected the Indianapolis Colts to select Peppers with the 15th overall pick.
