Michigan defensive back Jabrill Peppers tested positive for a dilute sample at the NFL Combine last month, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

According to Schefter, the NFL notified teams of the positive test.

A CAA spokesman, who works for the agency that represents Peppers, told Schefter that Peppers was sick after flying to the combine but has never failed a drug test in his life.

The statement reads:

"Peppers went to the combine. He was sick after flying there from San Diego. He has a history of cramping. Peppers was being pumped with fluids, drinking 8-10 bottles of water before he went to bed, because he was the first guy to work out two days for the LBs and DBs. He had to go through that first day, come back on second day, and that was the fear. So Peppers was pounding water and under the weather. He never failed a drug test in his life, nor tested positive before for any substance."

The defensive back is a projected first round pick for the draft which begins Thursday.
