Drug: Promethazine and Codeine
A man who combines our last two slides. He had the NFL success of Ryan Leaf with the lust for codeine of Johnny Jolly (Not to pile on but he appears to have the waistline of Jolly as well). JaMarcus Russell was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2007 Draft, chosen by the Raiders, and three years later he was out of football. After being released by Oakland (which is saying a lot) Russell was arrested in Alabama for having codeine without a prescription. While Oakland may have feigned shock at the news, Russell told ESPN that he had tested positive for the drug after the Draft.
