Brad Wing Suspended For Reported Failed Drug Test, May Leave LSU For NFL Draft

The SEC: where even the punters fail drug tests and leave early for the NFL. Brad Wing has been suspended for LSU’s Chick-Fil-A Bowl appearance. Tiger Rag is reporting the suspension is for a second failed drug test. They claim his “sore hamstring” in the opener against North Texas was the first suspension. It is anticipated that Wing, a redshirt sophomore, will declare for the NFL Draft.

It’s not clear where Wing will go in the NFL Draft. He is a punter, though the ability to drop a ball on the five-yard line in the corner consistently would seem to be a skill NFL teams might value. Three punters have gone in third round since 2000, most recently Cal’s Bryan Anger to Jacksonville in 2012.

How will LSU fare? They already have a 23-year-old freshman, imported from Australia, ready to replace him. More significant for the bowl game is that he is the holder on field goal attempts.
