The former No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft is failing out of football. About two years after the Miami Dolphins traded their first and second round picks to move up and select Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan—a trade that, at the time, the Dolphins couldn't stop boasting about what a great deal they got—he's been suspended by the NFL for a third time, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Jordan, who's failed two prior drug tests, including one last fall, seemingly can't stay away from the PEDs in the offseason. On the eve of OTAs, this time around, Jordan tried to fool the NFL by submitting a diluted sample.

As Schefter also noted, Jordan's suspension is untimely for potential top first-round picks Randy Gregory and Shane Ray—two highly-rated players in this Thursday's NFL Draft who've seen their stock tumble due to marijuana-related incidents this offseason.
