2015 NFL Draft: Would You Support The Houston Texans Drafting Randy Gregory?

The Nebraska pass rusher reportedly failed a drug test at the NFL Combine. Given his history of doing the same while in college, is he someone Texans fans would want the team to add if he fell to No. 16 in the 2015 NFL Draft?

Is Randy Gregory, in the words of Matt Schaub, Texans-worthy?

2015 NFL Draft prospect Randy Gregory (DE/OLB--Nebraska) tested positive for marijuana at the NFL Combine. This is apparently not Gregory's first time to fail a drug test for weed, as that linked article notes that he reportedly tested positive twice for weed while playing football at Nebraska.

The purpose of this post isn't to discuss the merits of legalizing marijuana. It's to simply ask whether you, as a fan of the Houston Texans, would support the Texans drafting Randy Gregory--considered by many to be one of the premiere pass rushers available in the draft--should he be available at No. 16. More to the point, does Gregory's repeated trouble passing drug tests concern you enough that you'd pass on him as a first round pick, talent be damned?

Some would say the weed issue is of no importance. Others would say three (3) failed tests, one of which occurred during what could be considered a rather important job interview, reflects a lack of maturity and control that bodes poorly for Gregory's ability to be a professional.
